Upgrade to 12.10 from 12.04 - now plymouth stuck on ugly grey Kubuntu

view story

http://askubuntu.com – A little while back, I asked how to change the plymouth theme, here... How to change ugly gray startup animation screen that KDE installed? I just upgraded to 12.10, and now it is back using the kubuntu grey theme, and the methods outlined in the old question, and even using super-boot-manager, no longer seem to have any effect. In fact update-alternatives --display default.plymouth still thinks it is set for the nice theme I had chosen. The problem is, Ubuntu is ignoring that setting. (HowTos)
