Ctrl+, and Ctrl+. switch tabs.
Also, Ctrl+Shift+N or Ctrl+T opens a new tab and Ctrl+Shift+D duplicates the 
current tab. Ctrl+W closes the current tab.

Try wp:KDE or gg:KDE.

If you are saying that there is only GMT under /usr/share/zoneinfo/, then this 
sounds like a distribution problem. Try asking on the puppylinux mailing 
lists. My /usr/share/zoneinfo/ looks like this:
Africa      Chile    Factory    Iceland      MET      Portugal   UCT
America     CST6CDT  GB         Indian       Mexico   posix      Universal
Antarctica  Cuba     GB-Eire    Iran         Mideast  PRC        US
Arctic      EET      GMT        iso3166.tab  MST      PST8PDT    UTC
Asia        Egypt    GMT0       Israel       MST7MDT  right      WET
Atlantic    Eire     GMT-0      Jamaica      Navajo   ROC        W-SU
Australia   EST      GMT+0      Japan        NZ       ROK        zone.tab
Brazil      EST5EDT  Greenwich  Kwajalein    NZ-CHAT  Singapore  Zulu
Canada      Etc      Hongkong   Libya        Pacific  SystemV
