proper fix included in 2.6-5

suggestion from @frankspace implemented. don't have the hardware yet to try out if there's any impact so let me know if you find something. .desktop and a shell wrapper added too. @starfry thanks for adding me as a co-maint.

update: running kdtc from CLI works, but java program is broken (it is calling dtc behind the scenes). i reached out to kryoflux support mentioning this issue:

noticed that this is incompatible with recent openjdk java (tried with java-11-openjdk and java-16-openjdk). ideally there's a wrapper script containing:

archlinux-java-run --max 8 -- -jar /usr/bin/kryoflux-ui.jar

also conflicts with capsimage

could you please update according to comment from @frankspace ?

Kryoflux now has a file conflict with the "dtc" package, which is now required for qemu. The simplest fix, if you can call it that, is to crudely rename the dtc file in Kryoflux to something clever like kdtc. Adding the following to the end of the package() section does the trick and presumably doesn't hurt anything beyond needing to know a different command:

mv ${pkgroot}/bin/dtc ${pkgroot}/bin/kdtc

If it's stupid but it works...
