Description:

Kubuntu GRUB splash theme, pure design (in fact Kubuntu crystal logo made bigger).

Installation (tested on Kubuntu Breezy 5.10)(code or shell marked $ at the beginning of the line):
1) Move the file to /boot/grub/images.
2) Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst:
Near text like:
$ # Pretty colours
$ # color cyan/blue white/blue
place this line:
$ splashimage (hdx,y)/boot/grub/images/kubuntucrystal.xpm.gz
Get x,y from line like:
$ # groot=(hd0,4)
(notice: If you have extra /boot partition, the previous line should be without '/boot')
3) Run
$ sudo update-grub
and voila (at next boot of course;-))!

well I've done like it's written in menu.lst but I still get an error when I do this ''sudo update-grub'' and it says this: ''Searching for splash image... none found, skipping...''

I've written this to menu.lst this:
splashimage ''(hd0,1)/boot/grub/images/kubuntucrystal.xpm.gz''

Any idea what to do?

You didn't mention if the theme works after reboot. In fact, update-grub is showing me the same message, but it works (well, if I weren't too lazy, I would find out where update-grup supposes the splash to be and rewrite the help the Ubuntu way).
