First, you need to understand the problem.  The animated logo that you 
are seeing is NOT an old icon.  The animated logo, like other icons, is 
theme able and you are seeing the HiColor/KDEClassic one.

If you have selected (or have left the default) CrystalSVG icon theme 
then you should see the CrystalSVG animated logo.  The only reason I can 
think of that you wouldn't is that it is missing.  The animated logo 
file is: "kde.png" and it should be here:


Please look for it.
