Currently, "dispkeys" is only included in the tar archives,
these are also available for the respective versions at the UnixTree download locations.

Try to quote it, such as:

Kctrl = "o"

This works for me.
But keep in mind not to use any key that already is bound to an existing UnixTree function
like "o" for 'O'pen !

Use:

export XTPATH=/your/dir/goes/here

Hope this helps
