I am using ubuntu studio 11.04. I've done sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop xubuntu-desktop mythbuntu-desktop kubuntu-desktop etc. And my computer turn on screen changed to kubuntu and my log in screen turned to lubuntu. How can I change both back to ubuntu studio?

The startup splash screen is called "plymouth".

If you change the plymouth theme, execute the below command with terminal.

sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth && sudo update-initramfs -u

Input the number of your favorite plymouth theme(ex. ubuntustudio-logo.plymouth), and enter .

After reboot your PC, then you can see the changed theme.
