I got my regular Gmail account (using POP) to work fine in our Thunderbird just by using their one time password. After Telus moved me to Gmail, never could get it working on OS/2, since I've mostly moved away from it not much missed and access it now and again in Linux with TB.
Talking about Telus, the home phone was in the wives name. We cancelled it last year. Still get billed, seems we owe them negative $3 and even the old dial up internet seems to still be there, useless without a phone line but likely why my Telus email is still working.

Authentication seems to be there so you can password protect your profile or at least part of it. If you enable it, you always need it to access things like history and favourites

That doesn't seem to be entirely true. Favorites, at least, work better without authentication. If I do add authentication, all of it disappears, and I need to start over (always using authentication, or it doesn't show anything). I haven't tried a second authentication.

Yes that was what I meant but put poorly, as well as I only tested briefly.

I tried to copy that whole line, so I could quote it. It allowed me to copy a link (only one, not both), but not the whole line. Both links fail. That may have something to do with having \HOME on a different drive than \usr. I have wondered if kLIBC Path Remapper might do something useful, but I haven't tried that, yet.

Try right clicking and doing copy link location, there was a typo that after I fixed it, the text didn't change though the link did.
Anyways the important thing is which drive dooble resides on, usually %UNIXROOT%, never did try with where my HOME is.

Fonts are fine here, I have a lot installed.

Would you tell us which ones you are using with Dooble?

See screenshot

The keys seem to be a term problem or similar.

I don't think it is that simple. Delete works on my Lenovo ThinkPad L530. It doesn't work on any other machine, that I have tried. There is something different about the L530. DEL in Air Boot is supposed to power off the machine. It doesn't do that.

Don't know, I see old *nix programs like Midnight Commander where you can train its keys. There seems some variability in key support.

Oh yeah, add that the spell checker doesn't seem to work.

Same here, even after choosing a language in settings.
It is a preview and considering there's been no porting yet, works surprisingly well.
Likely a lot of this stuff is in QT5's web engine and some in Dooble. Haven't been able to build QT5 yet, should look at dooble again.

Hi Doug,
Private windows only work in the multi-processor state. The single-processor setting is a hack for debugging and not really supported.
Authentication seems to be there so you can password protect your profile or at least part of it. If you enable it, you always need it to access things like history and favourites. This is partially broken at least on my and Paul's builds (haven't tested the official one) as we're lacking an API to lock memory.
Try opening this file, ile:///@unixroot/usr/share/doc/dooble-2022.04.04/README-os2.txt or file:///usr/share/doc/dooble-2022.04.04/README-os2.txt.
Seems drive letters are currently broken. Not sure why @unixroot works as I tried some other environment variables like set D=d: and then @d. They failed.
Fonts are fine here, I have a lot installed.
The keys seem to be a term problem or similar. Should be easily fixable along with the drive letter thing, which does work under Windows I hear.
Edit: fix a typo

In my attempts to build Qt5, I see it uses -mno-avx or such. Lots of subprojects, especially in qtwebengine and possibly one of those does enable AVX, especially as some use different build systems such as chromium using Ninja.
Need to see what code is using AVX and probably an issue raised at Bitwise's Github.

Hi!

Please create an assembly QT5 without support of the ABX. Due to the presence of ABX, an error occurs and the browser falls into the trap.

What do you mean by ABX?

Another weirdness with dooble. With Firefox or SeaMonkey, if the browser is already running and you open another instance with lets say "firefox.exe https://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php?topic=3048.new#new" the currently running Firefox gets the URL and opens a new window or tab with the passed URL depending on settings. This can be bypassed with the -no-remote parameter.
With dooble, a whole new instance of dooble is started, using the same profile as well (doesn't seem to be a way to have multiple profiles) which might cause problems like when both instance write to the same file.
Anyways seems less then optimal and somewhat dangerous having this behaviour and makes it harder to open an URL from another program.

Hi All

The real downside to Dooble here is that it closes after 10 to 15 minutes use - no beeps,squeaks or log files. Dooble can be restarted immediately for another 10 to 15 minutes use.

I was presuming it is NSS/NSPR related - the same problem Mozilla has with the latest NSS/NSPR - but if others are not having this problem maybe it is not.
What versions of NSS/NSPR are other people using? - I currently have NSPR 4.23.0-1 and NSS 3.47.0-2  installed.

If not a NSS/NSPR problem what else should I look at?


Regards

Pete

Hi Pete, Dooble requires the latest NSPR4 and NSS packages. It could be related as the Mozilla apps sure didn't like the updated ones. Dooble stays up for hours of light use here, I still mostly use SeaMonkey.
As David suggested, try catching stdout/stderr, I use (without the quotes) "dooble.exe 2>&1 | tee dooble.log" to redirect to dooble.log and the console.
Another possibility for everyone is problems created by too high of a VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT, I just lowered mine as a test. Values need to be X00 in hex or these, 2048, 2304, 2560, 2816, 3072. There's likely others too.

One thing I just noted, writing this, is I was trying to eliminate an empty line and nothing happened - I can highlight and delete or cut something out but can't eliminate the empty space with the delete key.

Woooops .............. I see you can eliminate a line by pressing the backspace key ........... but thats not particularly intuitive.

I think I'm also getting extra key presses or key presses that didn't occur as I note a number of characters that I don't think I typed and some misspelled words - but perhaps its just too early in the morning ..............

As to Noscript and also Adblock, we are inseparable companions on Seamonkey - I love all that peaceful, empty space everywhere, so I can focus strictly on what I want to see or read.

Yes, there is something wrong with the keyboard support, almost like the wrong term is used.

Hi

I installed Dooble on a different VM with ArcaOS 5.0.6. Installed with yum with all the dependencies.

When I run dooble I get this error on POPUPLOG.

Any ideas what can I be missing?

The latest libicu, 68.1-1 here, I see I still have the i686 one.

Heh Dave!

Hi Mark, to add favourites, click the star beside the URL entry thing.
There is no setting for restoring the previous session, there is the history.
The cookie support seems not too bad, but I notice things like having to log into os2world every time I start the browser.
Unluckily it is still a very basic browser, with I understand basically one guy developing it and there's a lot of stuff I miss compared to SeaMonkey with NoScript. It  does help to have a hosts file that blocks a lot of crap.

Thats the problem here, Sir - doesn't work (clicking the star beside the URL)

As a Beta Tester, not what we want to hear.

Still a work in progress - but it is a progression, indeed!

As always a fine weekend to you!

M

Seems to work here, though it seems I lost earlier favourites.
I'd assume like Mozilla, the profile is fragile. You might want to reset it and retry.

I guess the settings of the code page for DBCS are different.

OK, that was going to be my next question. So you're running a DBCS system? I guess an issue will have to be raised.
What version of OS/2 are you running? And which codepage?

If the re-install procedure didn't work, there's likely a conflicting DLL installed somewhere, perhaps a libc one.

Since this happened I have tried, Restoring my C: drive did not help because my unixroot=E:. Renamed E:\usr to OLDuser and copied usr from ArcaOS 1.05 test install to E:. Now ANPM starts but there is nothing in installed and only a few in available.

You could start over. Move \usr, \var and \etc out of the way, might have to go to \usr\lib and do unlock *.dll to move \usr. The start ANPM, it should download the bootstrap and install it. After rebooting when it asks, things should be working and you have the fun of installing everything else.
Usually these kind of problems can be traced to Python problems, the fact that Firefox won't start points to NSS being the problem

Likewise it opened here, though it took two attempts. Seems often Dooble doesn't load pages on the first try here, this time I pressed the home button (about:blank) and repasted the URL and it loaded fine.

Pages: 1 2 3 [4] 5 6 ... 238
