Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.

You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes.

GNOME Tweak Tool

Make sure you have user-theme-extension installed. Load the GNOME Tweak Tool and go to Shell Extensions and click the "Use Theme Extension" switch. Now go to "Theme" and click the Shell Theme box and locate your theme zip. Now you can select the theme in the dropdown box. Make sure you selection the right version for the GNOME version you have, otherwise the theme will not show properly.

If you run GNOME 3.4, just extract the 3.4 version to ~/.themes

Nice theme! But the dark one isn't working for me, only the white one. Do you know what's the matter?

Hard to say because I don't use GNOME anymore.

I was wondering if you could update this awesome theme with the same small fonts as the Elementary Luna Mod has please?

Just change the font-size in the gnome-shell.css, it's easy to do.
