So i installed kde 4, didn't like it and uninstalled it.
But now when i shut down the computer i still have the kubuntu splash screen displayed. How can i change this back to the ubuntu screen. This only happens when i shut the computer down.

Also, how do i mount drives manually. i seem to be having problems do this.
thanks.

As far as I remember you should be able to uninstall the usplash using

sudo apt-get remove usplash-theme-kubuntu
then install the ubuntu one

sudo apt-get install usplash-theme-ubuntu

or you can install start up manager using

sudo apt-get install startupmanager

For more info on usplash you can look here

thanks.

The general process is

sudo fdisk -l
(lower case L)
To list the attached drives/partitions

Now pick the partition you want to mount e.g. sdb1
Make a folder to mount it to

sudo /media/testMount
Now mount it

sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/testMount

You may need to use -t to specify the file type e.g.

sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdb1 /media/testMount

You can use the mount man pages to see a list of the file types

man mount

Are there any specific problems you are having?

This is why people should install the 'kde' package and *not* the 'kubuntu-desktop' package!

In that case there is an error reading the partition type, try using the -t option.
If it is ntfs or used with windows it is possible it has be incorrectly removed, shutdown or it could be hibernating.

What format should the drive be?
