OK, by the way
    frame-background-mode's value is dark

    Documentation:
    *The brightness of the background.
    Set this to the symbol `dark' if your background color is dark, `light' if
    your background is light, or nil (default) if you want Emacs to
    examine the brightness for you.  Don't set this variable with `setq';
    this won't have the expected effect.

The docs should show us how to set it if not with setq.
Maybe (custom-set-variables '(frame-background-mode 'dark))
Ok, say so.


Also where to obtain the results of Emacs' said evaluation should be
mentioned.
