FeatherNotes for OS/2
« on: November 08, 2021, 08:40:26 am »
I'm happy to annouce a full featured release of FeatherNotes 0.10.0 for OS/2.
Head over here: https://github.com/josch1710/FeatherNotes/releases/tag/v0.10.0-os2. There are two binary packages: One is just a zip of the needed files, one is an RPM. For the plain ZIP, you need to install Qt5 and Hunspell. The RPM should pull in the required packages.

Description:
FeatherNotes (by Pedram Pourang, a.k.a. Tsu Jan tsujan2000@gmail.com)  is a lightweight Qt hierarchical notes-manager for Linux. It is independent of any desktop environment and has:

  • Support for rich text formatting, image embedding and inserting editable tables;
  • Drag-and-drop capability for moving nodes and also for embedding images;
  • A tray icon for quick access on any desktop;
  • Correct position/size saving and restoring with most window managers;
  • Compact but complete search and replacement widgets;
  • The ability to include searchable tags (hidden info on each node);
  • Support for optional node icons;
  • Support for local and remote hyperlinks (bookmarks);
  • Text zooming;
  • Printing and exporting to HTML and PDF;
  • Password protection;
  • Auto-saving;
  • Optional spell checking with Hunspell (if enabled at compilation time);



Have fun.

Hi Jochen

I tried installing the FeatherNotes RPM package and I get the message below.

I installed the zip package and created a program icon.  When I execute it nothing happens.

As for Featherpad, when I close the program, it appears to close. However, the icon still shows active although the program is closed.  The taskbar does not show it.  When I go into TOP, it shows still active and I have to kill it.

This is with ArcoOS 5.07 with all the latest updates.

The ZIP package is not a RPM package. It's just a zipped version of the unixroot layout. It's included for people not using RPM.
If you use RPM, you should download the rpm package and install it via RPM or the Arcanoae GUI.

As for Featherpad, when I close the program, it appears to close. However, the icon still shows active although the program is closed.  The taskbar does not show it.  When I go into TOP, it shows still active and I have to kill it.

Yes, this is correct behaviour: The first instance spins up a server. If you start another instance with one or more filenames, it contacts the server and the server instance opens the file(s). If you want to open FeatherPad as e.g. EPM, use the command line option "-s", which starts Featherpad standalone with as many processes you want and each process ends when it's window is closed.

Hi Jochen

I have a problem with FeatherNotes and I'm not sure if it something on my system or in the application. The window of the application shows on the top and I can not move it on the desktop. I also do not have the windows bar showing on the top.

Wrong version of hunspell installed. Jochen can say more but I'd guess you need the one from netlabs-exp

FYI Mauro:
- Yes, I have netlabs-exp enabled in my rpm.
- I have "hunspell 1.7.0-2", "pentium4".

Hi.

I only use release repos. I made that mistake once. I will look tomorrow at my build version.

Bye

Ah, yes. I had that, too. Try to press ALT+Space and then select  "Move" in the window menu.

On my development machine, my hunspell version is 1.7.0-2. Hope, that helps.

Hi Jochen

I tried installing the FeatherNotes RPM package and I get the message below.

I installed the zip package and created a program icon.  When I execute it nothing happens.
The ZIP package is not a RPM package. It's just a zipped version of the unixroot layout. It's included for people not using RPM.
If you use RPM, you should download the rpm package and install it via RPM or the Arcanoae GUI.


I downloaded both packages.

Trying to install with YUM gave the earlier error message.

I unzipped the zip package and installed the USR directory over the USR directory in my root directory.
When the program object is picked, the program fails giving the following error message in the popuplog.os2:

03-20-2022  20:56:57  SYS2070  PID 007a  TID 0001  Slot 00a8
D:\USR\BIN\FEATHERNOTES.EXE
FEATHERNOTES->QT5CORE.__ZN2Qt4endlER11QTextStream
127

I used PMDLL to check all the dependencies and they are all there with nothing missing.
