Hi. I'm trying to get a boot text instead of the pretty yet boring Kubuntu splash screen. I tried to fix this a few weeks ago in some file I can't remember the name of by changing "quiet splash" to "splash". I couldn't make a backup because "the file was read only for me". So... 1. Does anyone know the location of the file I'm talking about? 2. How do I make it read/write? I am genuinely sorry for my newbish. I hope this makes sense. I'm using 12.04 installed with wubi if that's helpful. Thanks, Kimi
