Greetings:

Im have a dual boot, xp and kubuntu 6. Im trying to install a splash image or boot image in kubuntu but I have problem intalling it.

When i command:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

This is the error. I try also inserting the kubuntu CD, same results.

In Mepis (Ubuntu-based), I see grub-splashimages and kubuntu-grub-splashimages.

You might need to add repositories--have you checked using adpet or synaptic?

depends on what the splash image file/package is called, might just be splash images or might be something like "splashy". as pixellany says, repositories. So check out the /etc/apt/sources.list file - you'd need to make sure that multiverse and universe are enabled i.e. uncommented - thats the # at the start of a repository address line removed.

regards

John
