 it is recommended to remove the existing .dooble directory before the new installation, right?

Hi here's the latest release of Dooble compiled for Qt5. See the release notes under Help for what's new.

testing (QT5 environment on OS2 Warp 4.52 in Virtualbox guest, with 4Gb RAM), it opens the pages efficiently as before and I can run at least 3 pages same time on different "resource demanding" sites as Linkedin, Youtube, Gmail, Newsmedia. It also keeps same unstability issues which happen randomly, or at least I cannot tell when/why : cpu usage on Dooble instance goes at 100% (seen with Top), site pages not responding and almost everything slowdown in the system, but I can still operate Top to kill the process.  Guess memory usage matter

Looks like a winmodem, so no, it won't work under OS/2. Something like a USB USR robotics modem will work as the USB interface is presented as a com port.

understand, I'had suspected that.
Thank you

I'm curious about PMFax. First connection functionality I've been able to run at first OS2 usage in 1995 was a fax client in WINOS2 even before I could connect to Internet. Unfortunately cannot remember the software name.
Was by a 14.4 kbps modem through the serial port.
I'd like to try again, what I have is a Webrunner Atlantis Land 56.6 kbps USB faxmodem working in Windows 10, Conexant chipset, and OS2 Warp 4.52 on a Virtualbox guest machine.
Do you think I can afford the challenge?
Of course assuming that PMFax accepts USB connection or an alternative configuration setup for connection, and also can be used with the so said "winmodem" as that model should be.
Thank you

Applications / Re: pdf plugin for Lucide missing after Poppler upgrade
« on: March 22, 2023, 08:53:26 pm »
in fact, that made it WORK !
next by the package name Poppler-legacy-70 there was also specified 0.59.0

Thank you.   :D

Applications / pdf plugin for Lucide missing after Poppler upgrade
« on: March 22, 2023, 07:27:15 pm »
Hi all, after some time I went back on Lucide 1.41 RC_4 to open some pdf files. answer is "can't find the proper plugin for this document".
Comparing this with an installation of Lucide still working with pdf, on another virtual machine late in software updates, I can see that the plugin missing is lupplr .
Also seen that Lucide still supporting pdf works with Poppler 0.59.0 and have learned that lupplr comes from there.
The not working one goes with the last Poppler update 0.90.1-1.
If try to install the latest Lucide 1.51 wpi package found on Ecosoft, at the begining of installation already warns that can't find Poppler 0.59.0, therefore it won't handle pdf.
If I try to downgrade Poppler 0.90.1 back to 0.59.0 on ANPM, it alerts that is not possible due to the Poppler-qt / qt5 version linked to same 0.90.1 .
What could I do?  If not possible having back a working PDF plugin for Lucide I guest have to dismiss it, can you suggest a good/smart PDF reader (or also more than a just a reader) ?
Thank you

If SB16 works, great, but given there would be so few people still using that hardware, I have no real interest in investigating the issues.

well, not hardware, just emulation.  The VM actually works as explained with SB16 audio filter configuration/drivers, but if I could swhitch to Uniaud fully working would be best, my target.  Believe I'm missing some configuration klowledge.

Hi, occasionally follow this thread of Pauls's Uniaud updates work which I read is giving positive results in most cases.
In my case not exactly, meaning that my last attempts to replace SB16 drivers with Uniaud ones, system sounds ok but no sound in multimedia streaming files and randomly no sound in multimedia local files. SB16 at least ok in both system sound and multimedia local files.
This thread makes me believe that it depends on some wrong configuration I'm not understanding, also based on the fact that I'm not that smart as many of you, but much encouraged by the personal progresses reached just after joined this forum years ago.
Said this, I think that I will dedicate a new virtual machine to such task in Windows.
I actually run Warp 4.52 Vm VirtualBox both in Windows host, were I'm keeping 1 main guest and other 3 dedicated to different testings which if found positive/stable then are implemented on the main one,  and Ubuntu 22.04 host which receives the last stable updates from the guest machine in Windows.
Then I will ask a bit of basic support here, thinking that will begin whith the same issues above described.
Thank you

If it is using Firefox Quantum, it will likely be using Rust. OTOH, PaleMoon does not use Rust.

in fact, this beta (68) is a big switch from previous Mypal 29.3.

Web applications / Mypal68 -win32 browser- could ever run under Odin ?

Hi recently discovered this beta under development for those one still using Windows XP.
I shortly tested it in XP environment, seems to be a valid one although still beta, using the engine of Firefox Quantum (version 68).
Curious to have a try in Warp 4.52 Odin -you never know....
Does not run, first it claimed a dbghelp.dll wich I the provided and placed under Odin\System32 folder, as in XP is Windows\System32.
But same, given PE mypal.exe command in OS2 terminal window, does not start, not giving answers.
Do you think it will never run ?

I'm curious to know why you've got a SYS0039 not ready message (for COMn !) instead the more expected SYS0021 not ready message ?

cannot directly give an answer but maybe my config.sys can tell why, I can provide it if useful to clarify

Hi mauro

I do not use Avxcat myself but would expect some sort of "exclude drive(s)" setting within the app to avoid the problem or, possibly, an entry in an ini file that could be changed...

Floppy drive D: is possibly a USB Floppy - if I am right you can get rid of this, if not needed, by changing the config.sys entry to

You could also REM cd related drivers in the config.sys to "lose" drive F:

Drive order looks OK to me - fixed drives above removable drives



Ok Pete, following your suggestion I obtained the exclusion of floppy drives and usb CD by REMMING the line


and also

BASEDEV=USBMSD.ADD  was remmed and replaced with the indicated string


this fixed the "not ready" drive alert when browsing the drives/volumes, and AVXCAT now let the folder been opened for files selection.

I thank you much

Thank you

Hi all, I'm having issues with Avxcat when trying to open a multimedia file.  Since it begins to scan for all available drives in the system, it closes the selection window with a system error alert as some drives are inoperative (not ready) like in my case D and F  but however present in the drives list.  I wish to exclude them from the list so that Avxcat can go on to target a multimedia file.
Can you suggest how to ?
Thank you

Most issue you have are due missing required dlls.
The problem is that RXFUNCQUERY() returns 1 if function isn't registered and 0 if it is.
If a new rxfuncquery is done after an add it returns 0 (if or if no dll available) and when the dll isn't present, the dllfunction call fail !

To be more verbose about missing dlls and not crash:
I updated AVxCAT and added a check into libpath + avxcat\dll path (this one is installed by package 2) and issue a message telling which required dlls are missing to start AVxCAT followed by an exit. I updated information about loaded dll and dll path into the Extra logs view. (menu view).

Package 2 from WPI updated too.

I just refreshed the wpi link with the updates (02.03.2023)
Please, get the refreshed link


it runs now!
Thank you for your assistance

Hi mauro !

It should be resolved yet (no more need to add the dll into your libpath)
You can rename your saved avxcat.in_ to *.ini  (if not done yet, of course)
Install new WPI package only.

Ok deinstalled previous and installed this one, also placed AVXCAT.INI in its original position. Now I've a DrRexx window error message as shown in the image, it is just a short text advice, no lines running-scrolling as before, ad then the specific 3175 system error warning after closing the DrRexx alert.

For what related to the screen format, I can select in the System Setup -see image- and that resolution selection has been specifically created by my need applying the VirtualBox Manager commandline to set a non-standard resolution, possible after the OS2 Virtualbox Guest Additions
