Should the XFree86 stuff be mixed with regular desktop programs? Same with the Windows stuff. Seems to me they should be kept separate so people don't mistakenly try to run them and get frustrated.
Hi

I also share the idea that X11 software should be separated from the "/os2" folder.

For example we currently have in the main root hobbes:
Code: [Select]
- dos/
- incoming/
- java/
- multimedia/
- new/
- os2/
- windows/
Maybe it should be changed to
Code: [Select]
- dos/
- incoming/
- java/
- multimedia/
- new/
- os2/
- win16/
- win32/
- x11/

But I'm having a doubt here...
- DOS  directory is for DOS software that run on DOS and OS/2.
- Java directory is for Java software that runs on multiple OSes with JRE available and on OS/2.
- Win16 directory is for 16bit software that runs on Windows 3.1 and Win-OS2
- Win32 directory is for 32bit software that runs on Windows9x/NT and Odin.
But the XFree86 software, only runs on XFree86-OS2, it is supposed to be Unix software, but only runs on OS/2 since it is recompiled.

In my way to reason it made me stop to make a X11 directory. But I took the approach to put "X11" in the software I'm renaming (for the moment).

My other conflict is with Win32 software. There is plain Win32 software, and there is Win32 software that had been modified (odinized) to be turn into an OS/2 binary and runs with Innotek Runtime for example. The Odinized software is no longer a Win32 software  :-\

I'm still thinking about it.

Hi

I think that "/pub/os2/apps/graphics" reorg is near to be done. I still need to check some of the convert tool and I also need to test more the "/gimp" stuff with XFree86-OS2 to see if I get some idea on how to put it inside "/paint".

There are two directories that I need to explain. In the computer graphics software there are several kind of software categories, but maybe the most comments are the:
1) Raster Graphics Editors: The ones that edit bitmaps like Adobe Photoshop, The Gimp, etc
2) Vector Graphics Editors: The ones that edit vectors graphics (SVG) like Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, etc.
Since on the times of hobbes there where not defined that clear categories yet, I'm using "/Paint" for Raster and "/Draw" for Vector.
Maybe on the future those directories can be renamed on hobbes, but that is not a high priority.

Regards

Then, there is another problem.
You set it as an environment variable before you start the installation.

Hi Lars.
I didn't set it on the command line, I didn't have anything related to "EPF INSTALLDIR" on the config.sys. The only option related to the environment variable is that it may be changed by the Lotus installer when I run it, but I don't see any prof of that.

Hi Lars

On the VM I'm trying it, OS/2 is installed on the C: drive, and I'm running it from a directory on the desktop called Freelan1. So, I guess it have access to create temp files on the C: drive.

I had never specified a "EPF INSTALLDIR", is that something you have to set where?

Regards

Hi
I have an issue with the Lotus FreeLance demo (Freelan1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

I tried to unzip all 5 files in a single director and run install. The install procedure works, until it is left blank and it locks there. (check picture).

Does anybody has a suggestion on how to fix that? Or is that an issue that had happened before with the installer?

Regards

Hi

There are several INI maintenance tools distributed over "/pub/os2/util/wps", "/pub/os2/util/system" and "/pub/os2/util/config".
I'm tempted to consolidate all the INI tools to "/pub/os2/util/config"  (Configuration editors), what do you think?

Utilities / MultiUser support for OS/2
« on: September 24, 2021, 06:28:40 pm »
Hi

During Warpstock, there was a question if it had been considered for ArcaOS a multiuser support feature. We know that currently there are no plans, and I personally have no need for it, but I feel like it would be interesting to how an OS/2 multiuser support should work, only as an theoretical exercise.

What Multiuser support should provide?
- A way to create roles, usersIDs and password for the OS.
- A logon window when the WPS boots asking for UserID and Password
- A specific location the the user desktop and personal files.
- One user files should not be able to get accessed by other user.

At least this is like the basic things that came to my mind.

Now, I want to ask, there some multiuser software available for OS/2. Do you have some experience (good or bad) with it?

Regards

Thanks for your answers.

Heck, maybe we could do a quick "testing back and forth" here first?
There is no problem with that. I think it will be a good way to test the "theme" first with other people that uses VSlick

Quote from: Dariusz Piatkowski
We are such a small community that it feels like tossing something into Hobbes will go practically unnoticed. Maybe GitHub...I need to look into that though, haven't done anything with that before.
I suggest, that once you have a version that you want to share it broadly public, upload it to hobbes and let me know to post a news at OS2World. Github is also good place too to store the source (text files) and work the versioning of it with git.

Regards

Hi Dariusz

I had quickly read the PDF and looks very good. Possible I can only suggest to put your name, date and possible a license on the rules on how to use your text (Free? Creative Commons?).

I don't have or use VSLICK, but I after following the links on the PDF text I got a question. Where can the "Modern Editor Theme for OS/2" configuration files can be downloaded? I'm guessing that an INI and VLX files should be provided, or I'm guessing wrong?

Thanks for writing this.
Regards

Hi

I need a place to put all the document viewers for Inf, PDF, Djvu, BOO, etc. With apps like NewView, Lucide, Acrobat Reader, Bookmanager, etc.

I'm thinking on creating "/pub/os2/apps/docviewer", instead of using "apps/misc" or "util/system"

Regards

Thanks guys. I will check it out on a different machine, or I will refresh the VM I'm using just to be sure about it.

Hi

I found this other software that does not run.
tafeld08.zip. (1996-04-03)
No source code, just binaries. It seems all DLLs are available (I checked the EXE and DLL with PMDLL).

I get this error:
Code: [Select]

TAFELED.EXE 0001:00054c2d

Since we don't have source code of it, I don't know if something can be done to make it run.
