Here's another from /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/stock/generic:

Most of you probably also want to do this:
su -c "ln -vfs $HOME/.themes/CL2-* /usr/share/themes"
or for Ubuntu:
sudo ln -vfs ~/.themes/CL2-* /usr/share/themes

This will make applications such as Synaptic Package Manager - which run as the root user - know where the themes are. The problem with any dark theme is that some parts of the desktop are hardwired for light themes, therefore I could suggest replacing a few images that come with gnome:

Bear in mind that unless you use dpkg-divert as used in Readme.txt, these will be replaced upon upgrades. I recommend the excellent mouse theme "Neutral" for use with CL2-Dark:

OpenOffice.org doesn't obey it's High Contrast Accessibility option, so if anyone knows how to make it use sensible icons, tell me. I'm still working on it... - Aug 10 2006
