Hi Andi B.
I understand the problem for people with high resolution screen usually found in modern Notebooks. But I think it should be possible with current version to set all controls to the needed bigger fonts. This setting should survive restarts. I'm I right Martin?

If yes I think it's not high priority to invest much time in this and so there's nothing which I can do in near future. F.i. the (rare) crashes and some leak in currently unknown system resources are more important IMO.

I just wait on Martins response and if there is no real show stopper (f.i. some controls can't be changed to usable fonts) I'll create a ticket with all the valuable infos from Rich. Maybe some time someone finds the time to make a more elegant solution for that.
Like you said, this is not high priority. For me it is a "nice to have", it is not a bug. If there are no resources to do this, I think it is fine just to document it with a ticket.

At the end Nathan accepted the changes and now we have a directory for Win16 and a different one for Win32.

I would like to eventually populate that directories with software tested on Win-OS2 and Odin under ArcaOS, but I think I will request some help on a different thread.

For now, I think I'm done withe Hobbes directory structure, I don't see any other idea on this area.

I guess the strategy now will be to find and upload any OS/2 Freeware/Shareware/Open Source/Public files that may be missing on the site. 

Any other suggestions for Hobbes Archive are welcome and I will check them out with Nathan.

Does this not work for your on one of the controls?

Though I for myself rarely had the need to change my fonts the last decade or so as I still use monitors with 94-105dpi (most of the time).
Yes, it works for me with the usual way of changing the fonts with "Font Palette". But In my case I would like to adjust the font size a little bit bigger. I would like to have something that saves me some time grabbing by default font size (as XWP shows as default), but I understand that it is not easy to implement for each component described in the Font settings of lcmd.


Thanks Andi B.

I had also uploaded it to to have it as backup too.

Hello Andi B.

Thanks for updating Larsen Commander.

I was wondering if there can be some easy way to make Larsen Commander to get the default font and size from the XWorkplace 1.0.26 font settings, without breaking the great functionality that Larsen Commander has to select a font and size for each component.

But I recognize I don't have  a clear idea of how I want it to be shown on the configuration. I don't know if having a checkbox on each of the components saying "Use system default", but it may look to messy.

Hi Martin,

I think you are not thinking clearly.  Not everyone knows if a windows program is 16bit or 32bit so dividing up that way makes it harder for users to find something that might be useful.

Most people using computers today don't know the internal workings, to them it is just a tool to do a job or play a game.

Hi Ivan

When you start a message saying "you are not thinking clearly", even if it is your personal opinion, it blocks the perception of your interlocutor. I haven't made any value judgment of your way of thinking or personality in the past.

I think it is not as bad as you specify it. The directories have a text description of what it includes, and it is not a critical directory as /pub/os2. 

What do you suggest?,  just don't splitting it and keep everything in /pub/widows ?

Thanks Mike.

I posted the idea on the "Warp Mailinglist" and Nathan decided to take a vote on it.

It is not doing good. 7 for "I"'s (In Favor) and  13 for "Nay"'s (Not in favor)
People voting against it are not posting it directly, just a direct email to Nathan, so I don't know the reasons. I found it odd since it is a very insignificant change.


Applications / RPM Repository: IBM OS/2 Toolkit.
« on: April 17, 2024, 12:16:01 am »

I know that some components of the IBM OS/2 Toolkit are already on the Netlabs RPM.
But I was wondering if the sc.exe compiler and nmake.exe can be included as "os2tk45" packages.

Or if David's repackage of the "IBM OS/2 Toolkit" has something updated/improved that can be of interest to be includes on the "os2tk45" packages. (

The dream is just to have run some "yum install" command have a complete IBM OS/2 Toolkit on your dev system.

Hi Jochen,

 Got it working - didn't realize I needed to install the Doom.wad file separately (it was included in your first alpha version). It works great, sound and mouse work well, everything worked that I tried... nice work, thanks!


Just by anyone wondering, the shareware WAD of Doom is available to the public. (You can get the WAD shareware here)

Hello Again.

I don't know what I did, but it works now. I'm using doom shareware wad, and it loads.
It works fine for the moment, but the mouse movement moves too much the camera. I need to keep testing it, it is always nice to play some doom.

Hi Jochen.

I installed it with yum, but I don't know where should I put the .wad files.
I located it on \usr\share\prboom-plus but the game list looks empty. (picture attached).

By the way: SDL2_mixer SDL2_net pcre are also needed so you can add those on the release info.

Checking the Hobbes Reorganizaton there is a little mistake I made when Nathan was recreating the site.

At some point I wanted to slipt the Windows related OS/2 software in "win16" and "win32". The idea was to put Windows programs that run in 32Bits that are related to OS/2 and that runs in OS/2 with Odin in a different place of the Windows 16bits software that  runs in Win-OS2 sessions. That's why you see on "/pub" that I have /windows and /win32, but I never finished it.

My questions is, If I should go forward with this idea. Move the Win32 items to "/win32" and rename "/windows" to "win16".

I created this ticket, about enhancing XWPKeyboard Mappings.

I think it can be interesting to grab the idea of "Folder Hotkeys" and put it on "Mappings" so different combination of keys can be assigned to some desktop actions (parameters).
But I guess it will be more interesting if more "desktop actions" can be added to XWP there, like the ones in "Windows Keys" like "Hide/show all windows", "Show windows list", "Lock up desktop", etc.

Hi David

Getting around 10fps, and can move the view by moving the mouse. ...
I think I have your same experience, with the exception of moving with the mouse. How do you know it is moving, does the image/background moves?

Do you use SNAP or Panorama. In my case I used Panorama on real hardware.

PS: PrBoom is finished, but I have problem with the packaging. Perhaps I should simply zip it, and be done with it.
Is this a new build that haven't been posted. Just let it free to try it out :)
