But how well does the browser still work if the browser it reports is pushed to a current version ?
Do all website elements like login and other entry fields work ?


New interface from gmail or yahoo seems to work
(only function using new implemented code aren't working resulting into some sites not working (less sites) but, the most interesting is that many others are working again due to firefox release restriction only)

Might be better to use " Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0", which I believe is what the current ESR version reports.
There's still the polyfill problems, Googles video problems and also the possibility that the cache needs cleaned.
BTW, User Agent Switcher makes this a lot easier.

It is not high enough to go through some cloudflare
ex: clamav site

User Agent Switcher, yes good

More and more web site aren't working due to old firefox version.
I added an entry under about:config and now, I'm again able to see more sites, some using new functions aren't working like before but those just using access restriction due to firefox version are ok

Here is the added string:

Thanks for the note. I used the yum list in the readme and updated all but that does not fix the problem.

Did you install DLL's under local user lib ?

Thanks for the link Wim.

Remy, can you let me know which virus is detecting and with which AV? ClamAV?

I had tried the installer on my ArcaOS VM and it searchs for a valid eComStation license. But the files looks ok with me.


Hi Martin,

I checked the link/file using online totalvirus and he found nothing.
The virus was found under my windows system protected by licenced Avast tool and firefox avast plug-in.

I tried to download the given file but my anti viral tool detected a virus inside.
You never got a false alarm before?

It should be save to run the executable (and the resource DLLs) on OS/2.

I'll check again using online virustotal

Hi Martin,

Perhaps will do ?

Sorry Remy, that won't help anything in our case, as Lars has already written.

The important info is which app has opened which file.

IMO, that some sort of notification might exist (without an expensive daemon), shows the work area feature of a WPS folder. Unfortunately it works not with all apps, but e.g. with IBM's E.EXE or Aaron's AE.EXE. I don't have an idea why. Of course it also can't work for non-WPS actions, as e.g. when using the file dialog.

And even if we would find out how that works, we're still missing a list of (multiple) last opened files per app: If the work area folder feature is related, it would just give the current ones per folder, not multiple ones per app.

lsof provides app name which opens the file but of course, it isn't the current topic which is for a WPS improvement.
It was only to show that some options (group opening docs shadows under a same folder) could be achieved...

Hope you could find howto under WPS  ;) 

Hi andreas,

i'm not a programmer. and maybe my idea is stupid.
but maybe it's possible to create a folder that automatically collects shadows of every opened document (maybe just some types of documents - recogniced by the data-type or -ending, like *.txt).
additionally you'd need a routine to automatically delete the older shadows.
not sure if that is possible though..

at least it would be nice to have an option for each file or folder to create a shadow into a certain folder with one click (manually)..

No, not a stupid idea...there are none like that in my book, and besides, this is a "thinking" session all ideas merit review, regardless how "crazy" they may feel/ worries!  8)

What you are suggesting is probably 90% of what I was envisioning as I started to think about this. This is why I had originally talked about it from the perspective of defining an object class which could have it's functionality extended. I thought of the Folder approach as well, and as you pointed out, of using WPS shadows to represent the MROD objects themselves.

I probably need to spend time with the WPS docs to understand how big of a challenge it may be to either extend the existing Folder class, or to flat out define a new 'MROD Folder' which only does this single thing. Either way, I would expect that we should be able to use object inheritance to pick up all WPS functionality currently avaialable for regular WPS folders and use that in our MROD Folder object. As such, things like shadows, being able to open with alternative applications, etc. would all work by default.

* a REXX which is not a WPS integrated function *
I jus did a test using a rexx daemon "instlof.cmd" (using lsof and scan each seconds - customizable) which creates a Last Opened Folder and it puts into it files (according ext type) when openning a file (e.g. pdf, doc, odt, inf...)
*Warning* the rexx code is very basic, I didn't add any error handling etc..., just for test with some adjustable parameters into it. If you would continue or update the code, you are free to do it. If you give it a try, it is at your own risk :D .
(I've included from hobbes)

May be it could help as an idea for real WPS implementation     

*attachement removed*

As you can see, changes to files are logged and can be queried. But you will have to specify a set of paths to look for. I don't know if directories are supported recursively.
Yes, interesting. But the cited notify actions seem to handle only changes of files or dirs in a folder. I don't see anything that can be used to track opened files. Am I wrong?

May be you can have a look on :
Lsof (List Open Files)

I just did a try, and could find opened pdf, odt, txt ...  (pmview open files aren't listed but it has an integrated recall option)
May be use a very simple daemon, extract entries according a list of file type and add/update WPS object under a "Recently opened file" folder with the correct full path name, file extension having the correct associated extension, it should open when click on it. 


Utilities / CURL 7.75.0
« on: April 24, 2021, 10:46:43 am »
Tried to install curl 7.75.0 using ANPM, It requires to install clamav 0.99 (crashing at db load - very high storage use) and other tools which seems having no relation with curl.
Do you have the same issue ?

Nothing to do with your drivers.
He spoke about AN drivers too. (these have a not resolve problem and supposed to be HW - not virtual machine)

Again, this problem is not about HW. If it were, my USB drivers would also not work. There is a problem with one or more AN USB drivers. It's either about a stalled pipe not being cleared correctly or with data toggle not being set correctly (at least these cover around 90% of what can go wrong). And of course, in this case, the problem will show on real HW as well as in Virtualbox.

Hi Lars,

I agree with you...

Apparently there might be differences between 12.07 and 12.08, regarding the messages from others. For some, 12.08 finally works, others get traps. I guess you have tested both versions?

Yes, I try always newest from AN to see if it is finally working. The AN drivers are okay as long as I only use the laptop with he track point and the internal keyboard. But having the laptop placed into the docking station I'd like to use my external mouse and keyboard. This configuration works only with Lars' drivers. The AN became even worse over time. In the beginning it helped to unplug the keyboard and plug it in again. With the latest two releases even this work around is not working any longer.



I reported an issu on my desktop PC about usb keyboard/mouse not enabled after power off from windows and then boot into ArcaOS. To resolve it, I had to boot, go into bios and do an exit reboot and then, it went ok.
It was told me been an HW issue
(despite linux not windows have this kind of problem)

Your problem seems to be different but may be you can give it a try to go into the bios, and then exit reboot to check usb kb and mouse is available then.
