After removing edubuntu-desktop, edubuntu logo still displayed in the splash screen

Bug #39186 reported by Silviu Bojica on 2006-04-11
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
aptitude (Ubuntu)
edubuntu-artwork (Ubuntu)
edubuntu-meta (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

1. ubuntu-desktop installed initialy on the system
2. sudo aptitude install edubuntu-desktop . It changes the initial splash screen (which shows the status of loading modules, etc.)
3. After removing edubuntu (sudo aptitude remove edubuntu-desktop), edubuntu logo is still displayed in the splash screen.

Corect behaviour: it should revert to ubuntu logo.

thats expected, the usplash graphics are in {edu,ku,u}buntu-artwork-usplash which is a dependency of edubuntu-artwork (which in turn is a dependency of edubuntu-desktop)
apparently aptitude didnt remove all dependencys, thats not a bug in edubuntu-meta, but rather one in aptitude

Don't forget that is also in the initramfs. Does
uninstalling ubuntu-artwork trigger a rebuild of the initramfs?

It's normal that edubuntu-artwork does not trigger update-initramfs, it has to be done from removal the dependency edubuntu-artwork-usplash.

I compared usplash-theme-ubuntu.postrm and edubuntu-artwork-usplash.prerm (they have to do the same) but I see a great difference: the first calls 'update-initramfs -u',- the second not; it only calls update-alternatives, thus not updating the initial ramdisk.

I suggest to change edubuntu-artwork-usplash.prerm with the patch attached to this comment, if it is what needed....

This bug was fixed in the package edubuntu-artwork - 0.1.0-56

edubuntu-artwork (0.1.0-56) jaunty; urgency=low

  * drop edubuntu-artwork-usplash package as it is not well-maintained
    and makes little sense for an addon.
      Closes LP: #39186, #66726, #83410, #271376, #318522, #323011
  * bump standards version to 3.8.0
  * set Maintainer as Edubuntu Developers <email address hidden>

Thank you for your bug report, however;

 * Marking as invalid in aptitude, aptitude technically does exactly what it is supposed to do.
 * Marking as wontfix in edubuntu-desktop, removing a meta-package should not remove all its dependencies.

To remove artwork after installation, the best way to do so is to remove the relevant artwork packages (edubuntu-artwork, edubuntu-wallpapers, edubuntu-plymouth-theme, etc)
