A splash screen for KDE that mimics the Kubuntu Plymouth splash screen theme, so you get a nice flicker-free and consistent system startup experience.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a QML-based splash screen and no traditional KSplashX theme!
For you this means: You need at least KDE 4.8 to use this theme!
Extract the folder in the archive to
Go to System Settings → Workspace Appearance → Splash Screen and choose “Kubuntu”.
As of KDE 4.8 Beta 2 it is not yet possible to test this theme in the System Settings module. To test it, enter “sudo ksplashqml Kubuntu --test” at a Konsole.
(I do not intent to violate any copyrights by using the Kubuntu logo; the graphics are packaged only for convenience and are simply the ones used in the Plymouth theme in /lib/plymouth/themes/kubuntu-logo)
