It's OK to remove kubuntu-desktop as it is a meta-package ( it
contains dependencies ).
In other words, allow apt to remove it, and follow the other steps.
When you dpkg-reconfigure the linux-image it will say it can't find a
splash - but this seems to refer to something else, and at least
here, the usplash went back to the Ubuntu one.
apt-cache show kubuntu-desktop
Description: Kubuntu desktop system
This package depends on all of the packages in the Kubuntu desktop
It is safe to remove this package if some of the desktop system
packages are not desired.
What will happen is that the package kubuntu-desktop will be removed,
but nothing else. If you need it for a dist-upgrade you can reinstall
it without problems for that purpose. Not sure if this reinstalls the
kubuntu-artwork-usplash package. I see your point about aptitude,
although my German is not up to understanding the output properly !
Hope that helps :)
