Setup & Installation / Re: Shadows on the desktop stopped working
« on: October 18, 2017, 06:18:14 pm »
Hi Neil

Press and hold the Shift key - I tend to use the left - when the Desktop background colour appears until xfix starts. I presume that would work for the cutdown xwp installed with eCS but have never bothered installing the cutdown versions included with eCS or ArcaOS.

Hi Greg

You can choose which drives get checked - open System Setup -> Ini Maintenance Options, click the Drives button and select drives to check.

Looking at the log this line may be a cause for concern
     Info:  PM_Workplace:FolderPos  - 8013 handles with 1 invalid


Do you have the WPTools package installed? if "Yes" then I suggest running Checkini against the ini files to see what that reports.

Another ini file tool that comes in handy is Cleanini which is best run after using Checkini - http://www.ca-arnold.de/download/cleanini55.zip

Hi Dave

I would give the converter a go but it does not seem to be possible to download this addon without having Firefox installed - the url has no "download" button just a lot of "Only with Firefox - get Firefox now" buttons.

Hi

Will that addon work with Seamonkey?

Hi Greg

Possibly corruption in the ini file(s).

Does the [BootDrive]:\sys\apps\ifx\ifx.log show anything of interest?

Try running

ifx /fvr

to see if ifx reports any errors.

Hi John

Check USB is enabled in BIOS settings.
The USB keyboard works prior to booting probably as a result of the BIOS having USB Legacy support enabled.

Post all the USB related lines from your config.sys file and how many of what USB controllers the system has.

There is an updated USB package from AN which I think has an updated usb keyboard driver which may be worth installing.

Hi ivan

There is a gui for 7z files supplied with ArcaOS called Archive Tool which is probably based on Zippy, see http://en.ecomstation.ru/projects/zippy/

Hi Dariusz

You only need to unzip the firefox-45.9.0 directory from the *.7z package to wherever you want if I understand the readme and the *.7z contents correctly.

Setup & Installation / Re: USB questions

Hi ivan

I think we have much more hardware choice these days compared to the early days of OS/2 where, if memory serves correctly, it was only possible to install OS/2 on (expensive) IBM PS/2 systems. However, it is best to try and stick with devices and chipsets known to work with OS/2 based systems - although later versions of those devices and chipsets often work.

I suspect that the generic usb and sata Windows supplied drivers do not work with the ASMedia combined USB3/SATA2 controller chipset - ASM1352R? - needing a(some) driver(s) to be installed before it can be used. If there are linux drivers with source code available you could always consider funding an OS/2 port. Yet again, probably easier and cheaper to purchase "known to work with OS/2" alternatives  :-)

Hi All

Installing the VA Basic client does not seem to have changed much here; no change to som*.dll files except a few added, the only changes to config.sys are adding VAB directories to the end of Path and Libpath and putting the VAB SOM.IR at the start of SET SOM - there does not seem to be any duplicate files installed.

Hi ivan

I have to agree with klipp as I have been using Logitech wireless usb keyboards and trackballs for years without problems.

If the systems with only USB3 ports are able to drop back to USB2/1 then you should not have problems.

With regard to extra keyboard keys some may be recognised by xwp - have a read of the Registering Extra Function Keys in the xwp user guide.

Hi Robert

I just downloaded VAB from the url you supplied.

I have only installed the client and can state that it runs on ArcaOS so would expect it to run on ecS2.1 - will try to install to eCS2.1 later to test.

Hi Mike

I have an old Acer Travelmate laptop that does not produce sound with any uniaud driver unless I turn on and set volume using a cmd file in the Startup folder.

I suggest you use unimix to check the state of the soundcard and see if that might work for your laptop.

Hi Martin

If \ibmcom\mpts.exe starts with the "crippled" protocol.ini - I seem to recall it does - then you should open a bug report about naps failure to start.

Pete
