Martin, you ariticle is spot on.  Still valid.  Using the DFSee script option makes everything easy.

Thanks Tom!  That did the trick. 

Storage / How to properly setup a working FAT32 USB stick?

I can no longer get newly bought USB flash drives to work under ArcaOS 5.1.  In the past, I used the reformat.exe tool from the Essentials Package.  Its license expired.  I have tried formatting with ArcaOS and DFSee to no avail. I always get unknown drive after formatting in Windows or DFSee.  I have to admit I am guessing when using DFSee to format the drives.   What I find strange is both Windows and DFSee recognize it as a fat32 drive, but ArcaOS does not.

My question is what are the proper steps to get properly formatted FAT32 working drives under ArcaOS?

I did another system folder icon set.  Just unzip and copy to the theme folder that you want the system icons replaced.  Remember the other packages in case if you want the originals back.

Latest screensaver at, password your email address.
This has a bunch of various fixes, thanks to Rich for many and Alfredo for help updates and help with the wic.
Hopefully close to done besides more translations.
You may want to adjust the Desktop Properties size to look better, best to do it with the Modules tab open.

Dave, this link does not work, at least for me.

A new theme I call orangeGlossy.

The original package was missing one icon.  If you want that, download this theme packake again.

Here is the new drawingboard theme based on the MacOS 9 theme.

Its icons are now PNGs instead of OS/2 icons.  I had to recreate lots of icons.  The icons now look good at even the larger viewing sizes.

Tried to give the program folder icons more of an earlier time look to go with the theme.

Only added a few program PNGs to the theme.  I figured the OS/2 program icons go more with this theme.  The ones I replaced either did not have an icon or the OS/2 icons looked bad at the larger viewing sizes.

Added a little cog to the setup folder icons to let people know these icons are for making system changes.

Theme contains subfolders which contain background, button, and titlebar bmps which will have to be manually copied to the appropriate folders. 

backgrounds  bmps to      > drive:\os2\bitmap
button to                               > drive:\sys\apps\styler\bitmap\button
tbkggnds to                          >drive:\sys\apps\styler\bitmap\tbkgnds

Everyone's evil villainous weasel now peeks out of trashcan to full spying on you.

What is needed to extract icons from dll files?   There was one theme I did in 2009, but can not not locate the icons anymore.  It was another very unusual theme, stick figures.

I'd just like to comment:

I bought eComstation 2.1 before some couple of years before ArcaOS. When I eventually got ArcaOS, the first thing I did was migrate eSchemes and a few other programs that came with ECS - although if I recall correctly, it's called ThemeMGR in the installation files. For any who may be curious, it's worked perfectly for me across multiple releases of 5.0.x and now 5.1.

What were your steps to migrate eSchemes from eCS to ArcaOS?

See the above pics.

I have uploaded the Umicons bigicons theme. 

Umicons was created 15 years ago and last updated 4 years ago.
Original icons were created by  circa 2003

Most of these icons I modified or created to work with our schemes.

I did not change all the system icons.  What little  I did was a huge undertaking.

Martin, I think that was for Warp 3 which might explain odd results if you are running it on Warp 4 or its derivative.
I believe desktop wizard expanded the screen to something bigger than what you could actually see.
