well, i found a solution by myself, which is quite good taking in count how many problems are being reported:

E: ubuntustudio-plymouth-theme: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
E: ubuntustudio-look: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: ubuntustudio-default-settings: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: ubuntustudio-desktop: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Here's some Terminal action:

h13n-h3n@R-System:~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-plymouth-theme

Solution, just write in terminal 'sudo nautilus' which will open a nautilus explorer as root, go to /lib/plymouth/themes and copy an already existing theme, then rename the theme's folder (for example ubuntu-logo) to 'ubuntustudio-logo', go into the renamed folder and rename the file *.plymouth as 'ubuntustudio-logo.plymouth' this will do the trick. =)
