Now finally open the .deb with Eddy, click install and enter your password.Once done, restart your system to make sure all the changes will be correctly applied. Not everything in the system will change immediately, so if you want a full dark/light theme you will need to restart.

And here it is the final result:

Note: wingpanel-indicator-daynight and dark theme are currently not supported by the elementaryos team, use at your own risk.
