Events / Re: User Meeting Cologne November, 5th 2022 confirmed
« on: July 07, 2022, 10:00:51 am »
Hi Lewis,

I cannot speak for Sigurd. However I know him for a long time by now. We have seen us in Cologne and we have worked together to get our TP X200 and TP 250 working with OS/2 as best as possible. But I can understand his opinion about AN focusing on industry. I guess things might be different if you had brought up in your newsletter a continuous stream of progress updates about the new AOS5.1, the long time ago announced WiFi drivers and so on. Staying in the dark as an outsider leads to guess-working about whats going on. Better communication from AN might be the key to overcome such guessing.

By the way, I need to buy a new laptop in near future. May plan has been to buy it after AOS5.1 is in the open to be sure it will run it on this laptop (which shall replace my older X250). Any update to the release date?

Last but not least I personally do appreciate your work and efforts very much - Thanks for that. And I am sure making OS/2 ready to work on recent hardware is a hard task for a small company.

Greetings from Potsdam / Germany,

Hardware / Re: Suggestion for Laptops with No Ethernet Port
« on: February 12, 2022, 09:19:16 pm »

I got this question today on my email.
- What is suggested today for ArcaOS (OS/2 Warp 4.52) for Laptops that does not came with an Ethernet Port? How Can I connect to the Network?

Currently I limit myself for ArcaOS on real hardware with a Thinkpad laptop with an actual working Ethernet port, but to be honest never thought what we have available today to try to solve this issue.

Any suggestions?



one can use an USB-2-Ethernet converter. I have done so in the past with my TP X200 and TP X250 in the beginning before I was able to patch existing drivers, respectively before Arca Noae came up with Ethernet drivers for these models.


Hi Darius,

kindly try to disable the "Supports EA" flag when you mount the share of your NAS. That helped me in a similar case.

There is still an extension for OpenOffice called "Writer2ePub" to create epub.

Did you guys who have it installed verify the bug Matthias Seidel asked about?

I can confirm that the issue with lost diagrams is gone.

I don't know if it may be possible.
Do you think Calibre could be ported to OS/2 QT5 ?
(May be someone else experimented to transport QT5 appls could contact them! It looks to be a great application, using it a lot under windows...)

I do use Calibre (Win version) a lot to manage my ePUB books for my Sony PRS2 Reader. It would be amazing having this application running natively under OS/2.

Hi Martin,

the problem is gone on my TP when I login into  :)
Edit: I did not change anything. Just a new login.

Greetings from Potsdam / Germany,

Just tested: starts with normal layout.

Firefox ESR 45.9.0 (firefox-45.9.0.en-US.os2-Pentium-m-9.9.2-08112020 from Dave Yeo)

Applications / Re: patched PmMerge

I just realized that my Thunderbird doesn't crashes anymore. Usually I start Firefox and Thunderbird in the morning. After some time (an hour or so) Thunderbird freezes and must be killed using C-A-D or TOP. Since the new pmmerge.dll Thunderbird stopped freezing, which is quite nice.
I don't know if the new pmmerge.dll solved the issue or if I am just being biased  ;).


Applications / Re: FreeRDP - we have options!!!
« on: June 15, 2021, 02:59:58 pm »
With FreeRDP you can certainly be a single-click away from having access to a Firefox 'whatever version' you need ... locally on your OS/2 WPS literally as if it was just another PM window.
That's exactly what I'm dreaming of. So I installed the FreeRDP-package, and it works fine on my patched Windows-7-home-PC.

BUT not in application-program-mode.
Thanks for any idea.

Hi Lutz,

I am using FreeRDP for some time by now to check the functions remotely of some Win machines in my network. I really love this tool.

I propose to check the example MSOFFICE.CMD you shall find in the installation folder of FreeRDP.
I just adjusted the path and login information to my configuration and it worked.
In this case I could start MS Office in my AOS. I assume same will be working also for the browser.
