Rick,

 <ALT>-F1 brings up a menu when hit at the OS/2 'boot blob'.

 Hey Paul,

  Thanks for the updated qt6gui - it does fix the drive dialogs nicely here! I don't see any hesitations with populating a list like Dave does...

Applications / Re: Update of ScummVM possible?
« on: January 28, 2023, 04:21:59 pm »
 Hi Paul,

 I get the same error messages as Martin does, but if I move the contents of '/scummvm/share/scummvm' into the '/scummvm/bin' directory, all errors go away (except the fribidi one, we don't have a fribidi.dll I know of), but then I get a new one that says 'No PNG support compiled!' and it crashes with an exceptq file (attached).

 Regards,

EDIT: found a fribidi.dll on Hobbes by KO Myung-Hun, but it didn't help. Maybe needs to be used during building?

 Hey Paul,

  Thanks for the new QT6 Dooble and new qos2.dll!. Window scaling and menu dropdowns now look great. It seems the fonts on the menu bar, tab, address bar and in settings are smaller than in the QT5 version though (I'm using the new DOOBLE_HOME environment variable to keep separate profiles), even though both are using Warpsans 9. Could there be a similar issue with font scaling as with window scaling?

Regards,

 EDIT: attached a screen shot, QT6 on left, QT5 on right, both using Warpsans 9.

 Paul,

  The only way I was able to install python3 was by disabling all repositories in ANPM except netlabs-exp, closing ANPM, then on a command line typing 'yum update python' (no '3'). This updated both python 2 and added python3. YMMV.

Regards,

 Hey Paul,

  I don't have trouble anymore with OS2World in the QT6 Dooble (possibly because I use an anti-ad HOSTS file), but https://html5test.com always causes QT6 Dooble to instantly disappear (works with QT5). Turning off Javascript, HTML5Test.com displays a message that I need to turn on Javascript, and does not disappear. So it does seem the Javascript may be where the disappearing act comes from...

Regards,

 Yep, you're right, I should have done that first. QT5 Dooble was working fine, so I didn't even think of it. I guess there are slight differences in the QT5 and QT6 versions of Dooble that don't play well together... Wonder if there is a way to have different profiles for each?

Regards,

EDIT: I requested a Dooble enhancement to allow multiple profiles at the Dooble github site....

 Thanks again Paul! This new (20230115) version of qt6webengine isn't working right here - when I open QT6 Dooble using it, it just show 'Loading....' in the lower left corner and the circle spins on the page tab, but nothing comes up no matter what web address I try to use. No errors in the console though (besides the usual Opengl warning)...

Regards,

Hey Dave,

  Dooble docs claim ftp is supported (and gopher too! - tho I haven't tried it).

  Another issue I have - with QT5 Dooble, when I start it, the Dooble logo appears in the center of the screen, then the Dooble window appears in the location I last used it.

  With the QT6 Dooble, the logo appears above and to the left of the center of the screen, then the Dooble window appears way too big with huge images, off the edge of the screen to the right and bottom as if it thinks the screen resolution is larger than it really is. If I resize the window, close Dooble, then re-open, the window is way too big again.

  I wonder if this is related to the menu drop-down lists being offset? Maybe the problem is not the list positions, but the window position...

  Anyone else see this?

Regards,

 Paul,

  I can confirm the 'AIA chasing' error is gone, and this version of qt6webengine is much more stable for Dooble (as in doesn't crash or disappear as much) if a bit jerky. Thanks for your efforts!

  There are some functions that don't work (like pdf's, ftp and printing) - should I create tickets at github for those?

Regards,

Paul,

  Also any example that starts with 'QML...' under /examples/charts/.... will show the workerscript error. Some of those charts examples also have odd gray line or rectangle artifacts on them, especially animated ones.

  Ran into this too:

01-08-2023  15:49:06  SYS2070  PID 008a  TID 0001  Slot 009f
C:\QT6\EXAMPLES\WEBENGINEQUICK\RECIPEBROWSER\RECIPEBROWSER.EXE
QT6QUICL->QT6QUICS.__ZN20QQuickFileNameFilter16staticMetaObjectE
127

  I also have had some https:// websites work just fine - even with the simple browser. Try /examples/webenginewidgets/videoplayer - a youtube video that works fine here, even though it repeatedly shows the 'AIA chasing' error in the console.

Regards,

Hey Paul,

  Just curious... there are 2 files in the root of your QT6 archive: 'ib' and 'llib'. What are they?

  Running examples I'm seeing a lot of errors with QML stuff like:

qrc:/qml/qmlaxes/main.qml:30:1: module "QtQml.WorkerScript" plugin "workerscript
plugin" not found
     import QtQuick 2.0
     ^

  Slight variations on that, but always referring to "workerscript plugin" not found.

Regards,

 Wow! Wow! Wow!

 Thanks Paul, this is fantastic! Amazing progress... I downloaded QT6 and Dooble, loaded all QT6 DLL's high and it works just as you say. Http:// sites work, but https:// give the error about AIA chasing (?). I also get warinings from Fontconfig - maybe a glitch in my environment? Makes fonts look weird in Dooble. Here is a typical console running QT6 Dooble (don't see this with QT5):

Fontconfig warning: "/@unixroot/etc/fonts\fonts.conf", line 123: Having multiple
 <family> in <alias> isn't supported and may not work as expected
Fontconfig warning: "/@unixroot/etc/fonts\fonts.conf", line 123: Having multiple
 <family> in <alias> isn't supported and may not work as expected
Fontconfig warning: "/@unixroot/etc/fonts\fonts.conf", line 123: Having multiple
 <family> in <alias> isn't supported and may not work as expected
Fontconfig warning: "/@unixroot/etc/fonts\fonts.conf", line 368: unknown element
 "blank"
Fontconfig warning: no <cachedir> elements found. Check configuration.
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir>/@unixroot/var/cache/fontconfig</cachedir>
Fontconfig warning: adding <cachedir prefix="xdg">fontconfig</cachedir>
ERROR:cert_verify_proc_builtin.cc(559)] No net_fetcher for performing AIA chasing.

 After trying an https:// site, Dooble crashes and the system is quite unstable, requiring a reboot.

 I'll check out the examples next...

Regards,

EDIT : it was a glitch in my environment - fixed the fontconfig warnings by re-installing fontconfig...

Hi Martin,

  I like your list, and while we are dreaming, would like to add updated software OpenGL (which is an actual component of OS/2).

Hey Paul,

  Of course I am following and trying the test programs too, but in case you are wondering you can look at the top of the page and get an idea how many views of the thread there have been... currently well over 12000!
