v.1.1: Uploaded a version that glows on 'Restoring Session' rather than 'KDE is up and running' because in my experience, during an actual boot rather than a splash screen test, 'up and running' is visible for less than a second so you don't see the eyes.

v.1.2: Changed naming scheme to avoid conflcits between the two packages.

This is my favorite splash, I created a KDM theme using the same background to have a matching login screen.

the first time I installed it, it just worked fine.
The second time, when I removed it and put the other version, things went broken.
Also,the other glow kitty eyes (yellow eyes) works fine on my computer. =/

I figured out your problem. The package names conflicted with each other, so when you removed the first kitty and installed the second without clearing the cache, ksplash got confused and weird things happened. My above instructions should solve your problem, and I updated the packages with different names to ensure this no longer happens. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Try this:

$ rm -r ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/cache
(Will clear the cached versions of your splashes)

$ rm -r ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/kitty*
(Will delete this splash if it is installed only for you)

# rm -r /usr/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/kitty*
(Will delete this splash if it is installed system-wide)

Then download the one you want again to /tmp, open kcontrol and go Appearance and Themes -> Splash Screen, click Add and point it to the .tar.gz archive you just downloaded into /tmp (you don't have to extract it). These aren't magic instructions, just a thorough clean and reinstall, based on the fact that the files here work for me. You will probably get "No such file or directory" errors for some of them; that's fine. Let me know how it goes. Make sure you download the files again, because I was messing with the packages a few days ago and you might have downloaded them in the few minutes that a broken version was up.

What version of Moodin are you using? How did you install the theme? The files differ only by image order and a line in the configuration file; they can't yield such different results. Something weird is going on.
