I am a Gnome user. Just out of curiosity, I installed the package kubuntu-desktop to check out the latest KDE. The package has hijacked and replaced the nice ubuntu boot splash with the blue KDE one. How can I get the original boot splash back ? Which package should I re-install ?
Trying out codeMonk's answer gave me an error after I selected the ubuntu-logo option:
update-alternatives: warning: forcing reinstallation of alternative /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu-logo.plymouth because link group default.plymouth is broken.
Running this command fixed that for me:
sudo apt-get install --reinstall plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo
