Indeed, doesn't work...

Menu -> Desktop -> Countrywizard Country Settings

Quick, dirty fix:
Go to /usr/sbin and delete file named quickcountry.
Restart PupControl and country settings should work after that.


The cause (for interested parties):
PupControl searches for the following scripts:
- quickcountry
- countrywizard
- countrywizard.qs
- chooselocale
and uses the first one found.
So, when one click the "Country" button in PupControl, "quickcountry" script is launched.
Unfortunately, "quickcountry" calls /root/Startup/firstrun script.
Unfortunately, because "firstrun", if it was launched once (at the first boot), creates a text file /etc/firstrun that prevents from the 2nd and next runs.
And that's why it doens't work in Slacko 5.3.3...
