If one goes to Menu->Configure Desktop->Appearance->Splash Screen
there’s a possibility to choose and install new themes from KDE-look.org . The thumbnails are quite helpful and so on. But the problem is, if you click “Install” and it tells you it’s installed, that’s not true. The new theme doesn’t appear in the list of themes, all you get is a .kde4/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/sharelinkdownloader.php file, which was probably meant to run and download the theme file. Anyone knows how to fix this? (I know one can download the theme files manually and install, but this basically discards all the work done to make it simple and fast).
Thanks for any help!
I have seen this before with several different things, like icon sets, widgets and so on. I think the problem is simply that what you are trying to download is not hosted by KDElook.org, but by a third party instead. Does this happen with all splash screens, or just some?
Here’s the link to the forum page with instructions how to change the grub theme:

It’s strange that such simple steps are not automatized yet…
