Ubuntu no longer uses usplash as it now uses Plymouth.

To restore Ubuntu start up theme you need to uninstall the KDE/Lubuntu themes.

sudo apt-get remove plymouth-theme-lubuntu-logo
sudo apt-get remove plymouth-theme-kubuntu-logo

That should do it.

If not run

sudo apt-get install plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo

Hope this helps someone.
