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
CET Europe HST localtime Poland Turkey
