I can't speak for LXQT specifically. (I'm a XFCE / formerly KDE user.)
But I've been maintaining a dark theme for my own personal use for
several years now (screenshot at
http://www.darose.net/DaroseDesktop2011-09.png) and have started sharing
it a bit recently given that there's been increased interest in dark
color schemes lately.
The theme is primarily a GTK theme, so not sure how well it will work
with LXQT, but I also have a copy of the older KDE/QT version which
perhaps might be more likely to work with LXQT. The GTK theme is an AUR
package (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/adwaita-dark-darose/), while
the KDE/QT theme is just a color scheme file
(http://darose.net/DarkBlueGreyDave9.colors) as I haven't spent time
making a package out of that one since I don't use KDE anymore.
Hope one of these is useful to you. Feel free to email back feedback /
suggestions for improvement.
