Change to the illume theme - instructions on the wiki

To stop the other kb's from appearing unexpectedly:
opkg list_installed|grep keyboard.

Uninstall the numbers and default - leave only the terminal one.  I cant
be more specific as I have already done so!

You will get an occasional flash as it tries to switch, but it comes
back with the terminal.

Downside is if you go back to asu, you dont have a keyboard - no great
loss as with the standard keyboard its unusable anyway.  This may be
fixable, but I have not looked further.
