You could try the following colour theme I maintain.  It is designed
with dark backgrounds in mind.


To use this, set a custom-theme-directory and put the theme file there.
Then load the theme with `M-x load-theme RET'.  If you like it you can
add the hash to the custom-safe-themes list.  A note, you need Emacs 24
for this theme to work.

Hope this helps,
