Hello. I have a question to ask you. I am using Linux Ubuntu v.12.04 64-bit LTS operating system.

I installed KDE Plasma Workspace into my Linux Ubuntu v.12.04 64-bit LTS operating system [see website:]. Even thought I have installed the KDE Plasma Workspace GUI and desktop environment and let it remain as part of my Ubuntu system because I wanted too for future use, I have reverted back to my traditional and default “Ubuntu” GUI and desktop environment performed at the Ubuntu login screen. The changed my desired desktop environment at the Ubuntu login screen back to "Ubuntu" GUI. However, I still notice differences as lingering GUI remnants of the KDE Plasma Workspace to a few early booting/startup interfaces. I notice now that the GNU GRUB boot screen (“GNU GRUB version 1.99-21ubuntu3”), followed by the Ubuntu logo with progress meter at the start of booting/startup my Linux Ubuntu v.12.04 64-bit LTS is been visually modified and redesigned with a light-gray appearance. The Ubuntu logo is different where it does not reflect the exact design of the Ubuntu logo by default. This is all shown prior to the Ubuntu login screen. I assume installing the KDE Plasma Workspace metapackage had incorporated redesign modifications to some of the system wide default and typical Ubuntu GUI appearances.


Is there a way or a means to get my Linux Ubuntu GNU GRUB boot screen and my Ubuntu logo with progress meter at the start of booting/startup to regain the traditional Ubuntu GUI appearance WITHOUT uninstallling The KDE Plasma Workspace metapackage? Please explain. If our answer or solution is a process where it involves a series of steps, please define them too.
