I have my aasciiquarium back!

To have it working under kde4, apply the supplied .diff patch to src/asciiquarium.desktop, which will modify it to meet kde4 standards, then configure, build, and install as usual.

After installing, the asciiquarium.desktop file needs to be moved from the old kde3 location to the new kde4 location. The configure scripts still rely on a tool (kde-config) which returns kde3 installation locations (usr/share/applnk), and I can't figure out how to fix this. The asciiquarium.desktop file needs to be moved to /usr/share/kde4/services/ScreenSavers/.

This should have it working under kde4.
