3d launch pad
« on: January 13, 2019, 03:56:29 am »
Andrey Vasilkin's 3D lauch pad is really a nice addition to ArcaOS.  One can run multiple launch pads from various sides of the screen. Use Xcenter widgets for various monitoring and use the 3D launch pad for various programs.  Thanks Andrey!

Hi DavidG

I just want to also share the excitement of this app. It looks very good and it is very interesting that it can work as four launchpads on each side of the screen (optional).
If it keep working as good as it had been working for now, it will be on my "must have" apps list very soon.

It did just crash for me, trp report sent. It is nice as long as using png icons, the native ones look like crap blown up.

You can set the size of the icon.  I reduced the size down to 64x64.  At this size, most of the OS/2 icons render okay, not great, but okay.

It's a very useful application for me and very nice of Andrey to release this for all to use.  I'm used to dual monitors, but limited to a single monitor running OS/2 via a VM.   3d launch pad reduces the effort/clicks to launch frequently used applications which I love.

I reduced the icon size to 45x45 and the popup delay to 250.  Have had one abend, but quickly restarted without a problem.   I don't like to clutter my system with unnecessary/infrequently used  software, but 3d Launch Pad gets to stay.

For an unrelated reason, I had to restore from backup. Got the same trp after reinstalling LP but since it has been stable.

It still traps here on my main system in LIBC066.

I haven't tested it on others. This system is managed by the recent ANPM and I've updated all before installing 3D Launch Pad.

Remarkable is that the latest FireFox didn't work here. (I don't remember how, it probably trapped in XUL.DLL. There was no problem with PMDLL testing XUL.DLL.) I had no such problems with all the prior test versions of FireFox. It's time to test it elsewhere.

Interesting.

I have ArcaOS 5.02 installed on one partition and ArcaOS 5.03 on another partition.  I have all the latest YUM updates and am not having any problems with either partition. On one partition, the ArcaOS 5.02, I use OS/4 kernel..  I wonder what is different about Dave and your system that is causing the problems.

I have the latest libc and libcx from the experimental repository. Might make a difference. I did have only the one crash after (re)installing.

Hi

There is a new version available at hobbes.  (lp-bin-20190117.zip)
Let's see if it solves some of the issues reported.

The new version traps here as well in libc066.dll.

You can report this to the author. The email address in README.txt. Send him .TRP file.

Thanks Digi, I'll do that. Give me some time, about a week. (First I want to install the newest exceptq and try it on another system. Currently, I don't have it installed.)
