That's what I did :-)
Only I used yum, but that wouldn't make a difference, would it?

I don't think this list accepts screenshots, so I'll try to describe. The menu is a black rectangle, if you click somewhere you see the dropdown which is black with 1 or 2 menu-items in white.
Toolbar is black with some buttons visible (some of them disappearing when moused-over). Dialog boxes have black buttons etc.
All in all rather difficult to use.

Do you run gnome? Maybe then this is a KDE thing.
