Hardware / Re: Quatech SSP-100 Serial Port PCMCIA in ArcaOS
« on: March 14, 2021, 07:11:19 pm »
Hi

Never had to fanny around with PCMCIA at all myself but this page looks like it may be of help http://office.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/quatech/quatech_ssp_ssp100.html?p=42

Hi Dave

Shame as ArcaOS simply does not include anything useful in terms of multimedia playback - except CD Pllayer ( Classic).

Hi Martin

SMPlayer will not be much use without mplayer  :-)

I would also add PMunimix to your list.

Applications / Re: AccountMgr - corrupt DB maybe?

Hi Dariusz

Sounds like a corrupt ini file if an INI file editor cannot open it. Possibly your best course of action is to find a backup copy...

Maybe GenINI will be able to read the file and output a human readable version which you can correct - https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/?dir=%2F&stype=all&sort=type_name&search=genini


Is that INI Editor v1.1.0 or v1.10?

Hi

Wim has a useful tool, usbwarn, that opens the Drives folder when a USB drive is attached.
This tool includes a cmd file that I think could be modified to also play a sound. See https://home.hccnet.nl/w.m.brul/usbstick/index.html

Hi

Might be worth checking the mixer settings to make sure output is on and volume levels are set; PMunimix comes in handy for this job https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/apps/mmedia/util/mixers/PMUniMix-bin-0_82.zip

Hi All

Well, I seem to have all needed libs installed and up to date but still no text on webpages - see attached No-Text.png for an example.

Any ideas on cause of lack of text?

Hi Dave

The checkdll32 routine indicated some of the libs involved needed updating here.

The browser now starts but does not display any webpage text on most of the websites I have tried - ie os2world.com loads as a page without any text or images. Should this browser be able to display os2world.com? - If "Yes" then I suspect I missed another lib that needs updating.

Hi All

So far this browser test is a complete failure here . I am presuming that I am meant to start it using the run.sh file in a bash window (in the absence of the run.cmd mentioned in the readme) but entering run causes the window to disappear then reappear and creates an empty log.

Possibly I am starting it wrong or do not have all the needed support libs...

Storage / Re: Best way to copy a volume?
« on: February 08, 2021, 04:41:41 pm »
Hi Dariusz

Yes, DFSee would be my choice. If you have a Registration you can get advice from Jan on the best way to proceed - if not you have a bit of reading and testing to do  :-)

Hi Rick

Yes, a common example these days being the CUPS daemon, cupsd.exe, which runs in an "invisible" window.

In case you do not have the CUPS daemon object the Properties for the object:-

Path and filename: L:\OS2\CMD.EXE
Parameters: /c detach J:\cups\sbin\cupsd.exe
Working directory: J:\CUPS\SBIN

For binkd you would need to change the Parameters and Working directory to match the location of binkd.exe - as well as the Drive Letter for CMD.EXE

Program objects are usually created by Right Mouse Click on program executable and select Create Program Object from popup menu which will fill in the Path, Parameters and Working directory automatically with those program executable details. Works great for PM apps; However, to start daemons in detached mode you need to change those details to use cmd.exe as the Program with the app you want to run detached as a Parameter.

Hope the above makes sense.

Pete

Hi rick

I have OD 1.5, 3 floppy disks and manual in a tatty box - well, it is ancient  :-)

No idea if the floppies still work, no floppy drive available here.

If this is of interest send me a PM.

Applications / Re: mplayer - how to position the playback window?
« on: January 31, 2021, 08:54:28 pm »
HI Dariusz

Only running the 1 screen so I have never seen this problem and if the geometry option does not resolve it can only suggest you contact mplayer support/community forum, explain the problem and see how they resolve it on *nix systems.

I do have a question that may have some bearing on the problem: What happens if you use smplayer? - the mplayer frontend. Can you position that to your liking?

Hi Robin

I think the version included with eComStation 1.1/1.2 was registered to eComStation (or Serenity Systems). Not sure if it will work on non-eCS systems but have attached it for you to try.
