Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS 5.1
« on: November 13, 2023, 11:03:24 pm »
Do any of you know what MSGAPI32 is?  After restoring my software post 5.1 upgrade, throws a msgapi32 error and I cannot seem to get around it?  I have reinstalled the software and just used backed up data.


I also found this file with MSGAPI32.DLL -
"Squish/Maximus Message Api, in Addition to A Specification for the Squish File Format and Information on Designing Feature .Dlls For"

Rick, do you run some BBS software?

I have this beatbug file (1988) here that I can not run. Not sure if it is a command line game.
PMDLL tells me it is an unsupported executable, but when I run it on the command line it tells me : "SYS1804: The system cannot find the file BRUN30P."

Any tips on how to run it? Thanks.


Multimedia / Re: Updated Uniaud32 build
« on: November 10, 2023, 01:23:21 pm »
Updated linux code to 6.1.62  -  patches applied pretty cleanly, so I don't anticipate  any significant changes in behaviour over the last 6.1.x build.

Thanks Paul

I tested it (Release version) with ArcaOS 5.0.7 guest on VBox 7.0.10  (Windows 10 22H2 host).
- VM ICH AC97: Works, Audio control working, no traps. Just like the include ArcaOS 5.1 Uniaud, I have an issue that the first time I play a wav, I hear it loud (100%) and the next times I play it I hear it lower respecting the volume setting. If I drag a file to force the drag sound it sound 100% again, I play another wav  and it is 100% again and the next times respects the volume control (40%). It's the same issue from 3.01.03 (5.14.7), not a new issue.
- VM Intel HD Audio: Works, Audio control working, no traps. But it produce sounds in a lower volume. I had to rise it to a 100% to be able to hear something in my speakers, it is the same issue as the 3.01.03 (5.14.7).

For me it is working like the 3.01.03 (5.14.7) release. I'm keeping it on my VM.

I believe no matter how you install VLC, it will not work until tha idn11.dll is installed. Once installed, VLC will work from any location when updated.

FYI: idn11.dll say it is located inside the libidn package. "yum install libidn"
I have it already installed there, I don't remember if I installed it previously for something else.

Hi Paul

For what I understand the strategy is to stabilize and test version 6.2.6 and try to get a solid webengine and browser experience with it.

What do you suggest me to edit the first page with? Should I remove 6.3.2 and 6.5.3 to focus on the testing of 6.2.6 ?


Applications / Re: XWP v1.0.16
« on: November 07, 2023, 03:10:49 pm »

It is not an issue of XWP, it is working fine here, but now I want to see if there is a way to hack the "XWorkplace Widgets Library" to support the larger icons.
I use the "HBShowDesktop"  widget (to minimize all windows at once) and even if I drop a bigger icon on the settings it does not show right.

I think that the XWorkplace Widgets Library source code is here (and also on hobbes):

Workarrounds are also welcome, maybe there is a way to improve that widget icon size and I don't know.  Or maybe I should stop using "HBShowDesktop" if there is a widget I can put with the same functionality that I don't know.

Hi klipp

Here it loads. (Picture attached).

What do you mean with "doesn't start" ? It shows ups like it loads, and unloads without doing anything?

In my case I have this on the LIBPATH - C:\PROGRAMS\VLC2\USR\LOCAL\LIB;

Text Size
With two clicks and a reboot, you can now set the text in folders, menus, titlebars, notebooks, and most dialogs to a size you can read. Use the first page of the Desktop's Properties notebook to try it out. In Test Mode, changing the text size will cause the notebook to resize and redraw itself so you can see what that size looks like. No changes will be made to your system until shutdown, so you can undo this at any time before then.

Developed in conjunction with Alex Taylor, this feature relies on Alex's extended-size versions of 'System Proportional' and 'WarpSans'. The latest versions available will be installed by WarpIn if they appear to be newer than your current versions.

Note: Text Size itself only affects programs that are aware of it. These include system components like PM, the WPS, XWP, Dynamic Icons, and a few others. Use Alex's newly-released Styler v1.20 to extend its reach to 3rd-party dialogs that don't specify a text size.


It looks good and finally there is an easy way to change the text size in one shot.
Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot Rich.

I will try it further, for the moment I'm very happy that I can enlarge the icons size of the xcenter.


Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS Sluggishness
« on: November 05, 2023, 02:39:49 am »

So it seems I had an issue with my BIOS that was preventing me from booting up after the first phase of a UEFI ArcaOS installation. The setting was "Enabling Memory Mapped IO > 4GB" that I needed to disable for my non-UEFI installation when I upgraded to 5.1 originally. On my UEFI install it would hang on the ArcaOS logo after phase 1 reboot until I re-enabled it. I am going to try that GPT partition again.

Christech, so can you say that disabling the "Enabling Memory Mapped IO > 4GB" on the BIOS/UEFI was the solution of your install/sluggishness problems?
Is your Dell Precision T3610 now working as expected with ArcaOS 5.1 in BIOS and UEFI mode?

FYI, According to DELL's site this feature does: "Enables or disables the support for the PCIe devices that need large amounts of memory. Enable this option only for 64-bit operating systems. This option is set to Enabled by default. "

Just checking around the internet I found this issue on a different Dell model. They suggest updating the BIOS, did you check if your T3610 is using the latest BIOS just in case?

DSPRES.DLL contains the core (always-installed) PM system fonts: System Proportional, System VIO, Helv, and WarpSans.

They are all raster fonts. However, I would classify DSPRES.DLL as a operating system file because it's one of the system DLLs. Also, the one in Hobbes font directory is only suitable as an update for Warp 3 systems, and IMO should be classified as a Warp 3 update/patch file.

Yes Alex, that's good. I will wait until the archiver process the new directory, and after that I will move those away from the font folder.

I don't know if it is only me, but I think I would like some presentation about File Network Sharing on the these days.
- How to share files from Windows/Linux to ArcaOS
- How to share files from ArcaOS to Windows/Linux
Information, screenshots, tips and suggestion on Samba server on OS/2 to share files with other OSes.

A different but related question.

I read that "DSPRES.DLL" contains fonts inside.  Like this file:

Is the "DSPRES.DLL" supposed to contain a Bitmap font? Postscript? Depends?, so I can categorize this file on hobbes.

Hello, thanks for the feedback

FWIW, Type 1 fonts are Postscript fonts -- they are the same thing. I have no idea why Hobbes has two different directories for them.

You are right Alex, thanks. I also found this:
Type 1 fonts (also known as PostScript, PS1, T1, Adobe Type 1, Multiple Master, or MM) are a format within the font industry that has been replaced by formats that can support larger glyph sets.

Type 1 fonts were introduced by Adobe in 1984 for use with its PostScript page description language, and became widely used with the spread of desktop publishing software and printers that could use PostScript. In 1996, Adobe products and type development began to concentrate on the use of more versatile OpenType fonts rather than Type 1.
source: Adobe

I haven't installed any Postscript or Type1 font on OS/2, but for what I see the files on /ps and /type1 has the same extensions (.PFB .PFM .AFM .PFA).
But I still do not find what was the factor for a user to upload a font to choose between  /ps or /type1.

Maybe both directories can be merge into Postscript. "Type 1" a lightest directory compared to "ps".

The other day I was thinking a little bit about the "fonts" directory on hobbes.
For what I know OS/2 supports four kind of fonts.
- PostScript
- Truetype
- type1
- OS/2 Bitmap Font - .fon

Currently hobbes has three directories with ps, truetype and type1. I'm still not sure if I should only create a new directory for the .fon (Bitmap) fonts, or if fonts should be reorganized in a different way in hobbes.
