    ok thanks. but boot was just changed to kubuntu boot in from ubuntu 12.04 boot when i installed kde desktop. so i don't think it would be different between two. know how to change splash grub screen but. don't know how to make a boot screen. and change it.

    In Ubuntu we get a purple splash screen. In Kubuntu we get a grey(?) screen. Is it this that you wish to alter? I think you need to search in the system folders for things relating to Plymouth.

    This may help [break the loading process ] go to /lib/plymouth/themes and poke around in the details, ubuntu-logo, & ubuntu-text folders. Study the scripts. You will need administrator privileges to edit them but make sure you have a back up copy. If I was going to mess around with this I would be messing up ubuntu-logo.script.

    Regards.
