you don't have to uninstall anything. in a terminal, or krunner, type:

kdesudo kate /etc/default/grub

this will open up kate, look for the line that reads:


delete quiet and splash to make it look:


save and close kate, then in a terminal window, type:

sudo update-grub2

and you're done, the next time you boot, you get full messages :)
