I have not used this printer ever, but if laser and PostScript3 have no problem importing the file corresponding to the current system configuration from linux or windows. Here if I can help you, if you decide to buy it.

I have not so clear is the use of the scanner, but by what it says:
HP Scanning software, Scan key on touchscreen for Scan-to-USB flash drive (PDF and JPEG), Scan-to-Email, Scan-to-folder, 50-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) for unattended scanning of multiple pages, automatic scan calibration, cropping and image enhancement

Brother in teams usually have an option that is scan to FTP, and I have worked very well. By installing an FTP server on Peter Moylan OS2, and share that folder with all users is an excellent solution without any other software.
In HP equipment, tend to offer scan to mail, but in this case you will not say how to use it. If you decide to buy it and you can use the scanner in a manner appropriate to comment because I too interested.
Lately I'm discarding hp teams, for this reason.

Storage / Re: Share a 2TB USB drive between Windows and OS/2?

I with 2tb usb disk, create a single FAT32 volume Dfsee apparently all ok. The first backup from OS2, all ok. In the second backup I stood in a strange way. And when you try to do a chkdsk to external USB, it gave me a trap laptop, I lost partition tables but not from the external drive, in the notebook. Finally I could get it all on the laptop, USB drive and leave it as a single volume in JFS. The proposed Doug Bisset think is the best.

I excluded when an application fails, the message that if you want to close the application, with one option. And instead to install the system separately or with a call to top.exe killer or similar program.

I do not agree with you. I'm using OS2 for over 25 years, and I can assure you with OS2've saved my money to small business.
We recently added some Windows computers, and windows, there are other problems. You have to change teams often fall because of insufficient performance, some programs stop working from one version to another. Other programs win, bitches are updated annually shows that if we pay them, the system slows to a stop.
For me the main problem is the lack of applications OS2. You can have the best system in the world, but if you do'n have applications you can do with it.?
Formerly it was said that the future was java, today is a java seen that this is a disaster. With new versions almost every day, impossible to have them updated on all systems.
Perhaps the future passes through Q4, or the portability of the Linux world. This time will tell.

But for me the great success of the OS2 to the REXX been. The programs are based on REXX, have the advantage that each program is not entirely independent, you can do with a few lines of rexx, talk to each other, to understand each other and do things together as if they were a single Super App. Dbexpert, Mesa, Truespectra.

If the two files are text. But in the OS2 pressing the Enter key is formed by two hexadecimal characters are 0d 0a
In Linux, each line ends with 0a and the last line with 0a 0a

Lucide is workin ok. The problem was in the ppd file, I take the Windows driver ppd Spanish = error.
But Linux download the ppd file in English worked to perfect. I think the problem was not the language, but by the ppd file itself.

Using the Linux ppd:
1- Download from the manufacturer's website.
2- Unzip with Zippy four clicks

(Linux users are very rare, rpm, cpio, gz, zip)
3-editing with a hex editor as FlexEdit, and change the line ending character 0d 0a 0a for all lines, attention to the last line.
4- I modified the driver name to distinguish it from other like this, but this is not necessary.
  East :
* ShortNickName: "Xerox Phaser 6500N"
For this:
* ShortNickName: "Xerox Phaser 6500Nlinux"
To rename it to the right will come out in the same order in the list of printers.
5- Import the new file  and everything is working. I forgot the default values had changed because they were not my printer. The latter did after having installed in properties - driver-- select your printer driver. These values were memory, box-type, hard disk etc. Save and go.
Saludos :)

Hardware / Re: Anyone successfully using Brother HL-5470dw?
« on: December 05, 2015, 06:24:18 pm »

Care to elaborate more on this?
First of all, thank you very much for your great work.
I can not say that cups in the future will not be necessary. But as a user, if I can choose to use cups, or using its own driver OS2, I prefer to use the OS2 driver.
Formerly a laser color printer with PostScript 3, cost 3000 euros, now less than 300 euros.
I have used in my cups work with inkjet, since the beginning of cups, and provided only 3 teams, I have come to hate. For hours I had to spend to make it work. And calls from users complaining that not print me. Usually the problem was not cups, was the user and the peculiarities of cups.

If the printer supports PostScript 3, you can search the file printer drivers either Windows or Linux. Looking for the xxxxxxx.PPD file. With this file you move to your OS2, and the utility to import driver Alex, you can have a proper driver for your printer the OS2. That will allow you to use all the features of your printer.
This is true for any manufacturer, HP, Xerox, etc. not only for Brother.
I have come to hate cups, although work.
If you need assistance in the import, question.

Applications / Re: OSS Project ideas for OS2VOICE
« on: December 03, 2015, 05:35:54 pm »
Well, from my point of view it is completely different, so the question I would do it because OS2 users sometimes use another operating system?

The Tame2 program is good, but in the future I will not be necessary, most current scanners have the option of sending it to FTP. I have an FTP server installed both at work and at home and step scaner documents directly to FTP server without any software.

I think these are some programs to bear.
I have to boot windows to draw in 2D. or 3D.Many users printing in 3D, using these programs.
I liked the Qcad 2D and  the OpenSCAD in 3D. I'm using the BlueCad, since its inception, but it is very outdated.

Much depends on whether the new idea will be to maintain OS2 users, or if you want to attract new users. For new users to attract more applications are needed.

2) Do you have a technique to know which DLL or EXE calls an specific DLL? Because the only way I know is going each EXE one by one with PMDLL. If there is a better technique I will appreciate it.

In this articule :

PM program DLL Tree ( reports.
I do not if this can help you.

I forgot to mention that from the gsview, both printers print correctly. But the screen image from the lucide looks better and prefer to use the lucide.

In a computer, with the same software, imported ppd of their respective manufacturers. Color laser printers with an old Brother and of poor quality, a new Xerox Phaser 6500N with better quality, both networked. Both printers print OS2 from many applications without problems. But Xerox printing pdfs from Lucice takes me a lot of text pages. The brother with lucide prints all ok.
So I think there is not a problem of lucide, if not ppd or settings of the printer. Any help?

Here's a long list of backup solutions:

Thanks Gregory, but I want test zipboot  but i can not found. I see in hobbes and google, Do yuo have any link?

I think you mean eCS v2.0 to eCS v2.1.
Yes v2.0 to 2.1
It should be very simple if you have nothing but eCS on your boot partition and all programs and utilities on another partition,
This is not my case
in which case you would only need to use something like robosave to copy the desktop and then format the partition and then install the newer version and use roborestore to restore the desktop.
I do not know this robosaver -roborestore application theft, but understand that this is similar to a copy and restoration of INIS, desktop, and CFG. This is not a problem.
I am still not sure that there are any advantages in doing so because as far as I know there are no changes to the underlying OS/2 that eCS is based on, although there may be changes to some of the utilities but I would have thought they could be updated independent of the base OS. 

I may be wrong, but I understand that eCS has followed the windows idea of dumping everything - OS plus programs and utilities - onto a very large boot partition which makes the simple reformat/reinstall impossible and hence producing a lot of the problems we are reading about.  If that is your situation I feel sorry for you and I think no matter what you do you will be disappointed.
This is my problem !!, but I get the feeling that you have the same problem as me. When you install your system you have to pay close attention to where you install and do the hard work on the installation. I do it every time in update the system reinstalling all applications and reconfiguring everything.
So **I look for another option.**
I can ask you, where you have imported printer drivers? In the boot or on another drive.
