Om 2008.8: no terminal installed ?

Firstly, these sound like questions for the support list.  This is the
devel list.  I think we want to keep the traffic here focused on
development related discussions.

So, to use the default Om2008.8 keyboard to enter numbers, etc, swipe
up or down on the keyboard.  The enter button is on the panel with the
special characters.  I don't see a ctrl or esc key.  No clue how to
enter those with this keyboard.

As far as the icons at the top, it would seem to me that the GTK theme
loaded with Om2008.8 is slightly different than that of OM2007.2.  Not
sure how or why.  I intend to start a new thread about that very
"issue" as it affects a program I developed that I would like to work
the same on both Om2008.8 and OM2007.2.
