Help! Upgraded mint package & installed ugly splashes!

Hello,

I recently upgraded a few packages, and now the Gimp and Open Office splash screens have been replaced by (I assume newer) uglier ones. I unfortunately don't remember which package I installed that did this, but I would really like to roll back to the original splash screens if possible. I've tried replacing them manually, but they keep reverting to the newer ones. Please help!

Regards,

Tim

**EDIT: I should probably point out that the images I've tried replacing are /usr/share/gimp/2.0/images/gimp-splash.png and /user/lib/openoffice/program/openabout_ubuntu_sun.bmp & openintro_ubuntu_sun.bmp

Is there a way to search through packages by what they install? For instance, could I use some type of command to find what package was installed by entering the complete filename (e.g. /usr/share/gimp/2.0/images/gimp-splash.png)?

Synaptic will show you a list of all installed files by a particular package. (Enable the properties tab, Preferences -> General -> Appearance). Then click on the Installed Files tab.

Thanks curmudgeon. I have tried to find the package that way, but so far no luck. I either want to find a way to remove the package (if any) that caused this splash screen switch, or replace the splash screens without them being switched back to the ugly ones every time I restart the computer.

Thanks for your input,

Tim

Is there no way to permanently replace the splash screens I mentioned?

Uhm... I'm going to bump this one more time in case someone knows the answer to this.
