Hardware / HP Printer Officejet 9015e

Greetings,

Getting further along in getting my Arca setup going... I am trying to get it to print.  I have the above mentioned HP printer on my network, Arca sees it, which was good but when I print to it, it prints one garbled line across the top of the page and that is it... Anyone point me where to trouble shoot?

Hope everyone is well and staying safe

Greetings All,

I hope everyone is well out there!  I cannot remember, can I start an application say like file commander from a 4os2 prompt from any dir by say typing "fc"?  I have that dir on my path statement in config.sys, I just do not recall if that is possible under os2 or arca?

Regards,

Rick

Personally, I use File Commander for things like a cmd line text editor, file manager etc. Shareware but no nags etc, http://silk.apana.org.au/fc.html

Thank you, this is just like midnight commander which I am familiar.....!

Greetings,

I have followed all of these tips on a thinkpad t430s with 1080 screen.  I have it mostly working, however once in DOS session I can get BBS started but for some reason if I do a simple "dir" command it closes DOS completely

Any thoughts

Regards,

Thank you all for your help I just had to repurchase arca  :o because to buy the maintenance program after expired was more expensive than just purchasing the whole OS again.. kind of shitty of arca but oh well...

That second link is the information I did actually try.  Your fist link to the mantis doesnt seem to work.

Setup & Installation / Dos and WinOS2
« on: July 08, 2022, 02:38:14 am »
Greetings,

I have just discovered that both dos and winos2 prompts do not work, in fact loading either window or full screen hangs my laptop. I do not recall this issue when I installed arca on this laptop before but it was awhile ago.  I looked on arca web site and seemed they had directions to fix similar issues so I did try those, autoexec.bat and the config.sys change but problem persists.  Any ideas?

Is there a good command line text editor for os2? Like nano etc?

Setup & Installation / Back to ARCA

Greetings All,

I am giving Arca another go on my thinkpad 430s and there are a couple things I know I figured out before but cant seem to remember how to today.  One my touch pad works as expected but cannot use it to scroll? Was this ever working or was I imagining that?  Also there is a way to drill down into folders without opening a new window, I just dont recall how to do that... I did get it to work with my 1080 laptop screen that I installed so thats awesome!

Glad to be back, Hope everyone is well

Regards,

Applications / Re: ODIN

Hi,

So being new to Odin I’m getting stuck… I’m trying to install a win app via its installer like putty. I know qputty exists but does not seem to support newer keys and just isn’t working. Anyhow what I have been doing is pe puttyinstaller and I keep running into fatal error missing kernel32.dll so I grabbed it off a xp install put it on arca but doesn’t correct it, do I have to put it somewhere specific? Will this even work? I can run the individual .exe’s but if somehow the installer would allow other programs to call it.

I don’t know if this is even possible but I’d figure I’d ask here instead of wasting more time.

Regards,

Rick

Hi Rick

Are you using ArcaOS and Odin from the RPM?

The Windows directory structure is on "C:\var\lib\odin", but for the first time put "MSCVRT.DLL" in the same directory of the .exe you are trying to run. Remember that not all Win32 applications will run with Odin.

Which Windows program are you trying to run?
I tried to recreate the Win32 database of programs that runs on OS/2 on the wiki, but I'm still missing a lot.

Regards

I’m trying to run syncterm it’s a telnet bbs terminal I guess is the best way to describe it

Greetings.

I solved starting the agent....

However when running ssh-add to add a key I get

could not open a connection to your authentication agent?

Fix one thing break another I guess... ssh and sshd are working well tho.... just would be nice to get agent working...
