You could have a look at JFTP 5 which I use on my beta warp 4 Merlin box.  It uses open JDK 6.

I have my Linux computer, running Mint 19.3 Cinnamon, under my desk connected to my 28 inch 16;10 monitor via a 4-port HDMI switch.  The switch allows me to also check on a data logger running on a very cut down win 7 box as well as my original OS/2 Warp 4.

Comparing OS/2 desktop with the Linux desktop they are setup almost alike - I have the warpcenter at the top of the screen and the linux equivalent is at the bottom of the screen/

Thanks Martin, I had completely forgotten about that - now I can finish restoring that computer.

Memo to self: Never let a rabid Window$ user use an OS/2 computer - they will mess it up.

Applications / XWP Problem - Shut down
« on: July 03, 2024, 09:14:16 pm »
I have just updated xwp 1.0.16 on one of my computers and found a problem or I'm missing something.

All my earlier installs of xwp  actually shut down the computers when I use the extended shut down - 1.0.16 closes the OS but does NOT actually shut the computer down which is what I expect.  Am I doing something wrong or have I missed some setting?

I must agree with Andrew about getting a sensible keyboard and since most, if not all laptops have USB ports, the simple answer is to use a USB keyboard.

Hi Sigurd,

I am not seeing what you are here.  I can run OpenOffice without problems and I have enough memory free to do other things.

mem -v gives

Total physical memory:      7,906 MB
Accessible to system:       3,311 MB
Additional (PAE) memory:    4,595 MB

Resident memory:              202 MB
Available virtual memory:   2,449 MB

Available process memory:
  Private low memory:         224 MB
  Private high memory:      2,240 MB
  Shared low memory:           24 MB
  Shared high memory:       2,181 MB

I don't know if the fact I am using AMD Ryzen 3 processors with built in graphics has anything to do with it (I gave up using Intel processors years ago in the days of the 486).

For a browser I use Firefox on Linux Mint and transfer anything I want to OS/2 via the network.

I must say that I fully agree with Sigurd, in fact I have returned several of my computers back to Warp 4, and the other 2 are still at Aos 5.0.7.

I know that several people will say 'what about UEFI/GPT' to which my response is 'what about them, they are not part of OS/2, if they want to run windows just add another disk and install it on that.

OK, let's get down to basics.

a) what processor?
b) what, if any, video card?  - that one depends on if the processor has a built in video or not.
c) how is the monitor connected -VGA, HDMI and so on?

I assume you are streaming off the net so have you checked external network consistency?  Mine has a tendency to drop out during times of maximum load because the main fibre is shared between 4 services.  I have seen my 1Gb connection drop to to below 500K at times.

As a matter of interest I have imported both of my printers ppd so I assume that you can import more if necessary.

If I am reading the specifications for the DCP-L3560cdw correctly it has built in support for postscript (BR-Script3) which means that CUPS is not required.  All that is needed is the ppd file and Alex's PSPRINT driver - that is all I use with both of my Brother printers.

My Brother DCP9020cdw allows me to produce either JPG images or PDF files without problems, couple that with the fact it will also make multi page PDFs makes it a very handy office multi function unit.

I have two Brother laser printers because my house has 4 levels and the two printers save me constantly running up and down stairs.

The main printer is a Brother DCP9020cdw and the other one is a HL3170cdw.  Both are connected to the network which means they are available from any computer in the house.

Just an observation.  I notice that most people seem to follow the win idea and cram everything into the one partition and then have problems getting everything working again.

My setup has 9 partitions, a small one (2GB) only for the operating system (it could be smaller but I can't be bothered to change it), then I have one for tools another for programs, another for work and yet another for home as well as a few odd ones for storage.  In fact apart from new operation systems (OS/2, OS/2 warp and now ArcaOS the other partitions remain untouched except for the odd update as necessary.

My reasoning comes from when I was guiding a couple of companies that were setting up with OS/2 and I see no reason to change it.  I will add that I now have a Linux mint based computer at the side of my desk so I can use a newer version of firefox to download or screen grab what I want, and network it to my OS/2 unit for processing.

I gave up on inkjet printers about the time that warp connect was released and converted to laser printers.  OK, so maybe I don't get quite the range of colours that an inkjet does but I get colour fast prints that if my Newfoundland dog shakes slobber on them it can be wiped off without problems.
