[kde-linux] Splash screen import errors

I'm trying to customize my desktop after years of using the defaults, 
but I'm running into problems.  I'm able to change the wallpaper okay 
but not the kde splash screen.

When I go to Start > Configure Desktop > Appearance > Splash Screen > 
Get New Themes, it takes me to the kde-look.org page, but I haven't been 
able to install the splash images I want.

When I click "install", it displays the circling balls but doesn't 
install anything.  In two cases it shows the busy balls then goes back 
to the menu (images: BlueLinuxSplash, Simple Swirled).  When I try to 
install two others (BlueElectric, KStarboard Splash), the busy balls 
appear and then the install box changes to uninstall.  However, after I 
reboot, I find nothing has been installed and no additions have made to 
the splash screen menu (see attachment).

Is this a bug in the factory version or am I trying to install 

Thanks, Tom (retired penguin)
