I don't know of any Java Runtime for iOS.

On my company server, I run Jetty (a Java web application server). If I knew of one, I could run a server side password manager written in Java (limited to the OS/2 OpenJDK port)

I suppose that would not be very secure, either.
There are some very nice search engines available, I use DuckDuckGo. Just type in "iOS Java" and you have some reading to  do.

I'm not interested in jail-breaking any device. There isn't a Java solution on iOS. Any developer can use XCode tools to make a Java app run native on iOS, but the effort is not free and the result is not portable to Java JVM.

Dave's suggestion of https://app.keeweb.info/ is working here. I can use it to view my Firefox passwords in Dooble. It's not Firefox45 compatible, but that was never a requirement, just a "nice to have".

Given the seeming lack of interest in other compiler/tool news (ie GCC 12) I'm not sure that anyone will  care.

I'm now working with a Blonde Guy customer to implement GFORTRAN for his operations, which could not have happened without you.

Thanks!

Setup & Installation / Lock in place hides a printer
« on: June 03, 2022, 07:11:38 pm »
This is a bit of Workplace shell weirdness. I have a printers folder with 8 printer objects in it. The window is neatly sized to show all 8 printers in a 2 x 4 grid.

I created shadows of 4 of the printer objects on the desktop. So far, so good.

I then checked "Lock in place" for the 4 shadowed objects on the desktop. When I open the printers folder, all the icons are gone.

(After a little investigation, I see that if I make the printers folder very large, some of the printer show up. By very large, I mean bigger than the desktop.)

I'm not seeing a Java password manager running on iOS. Running Java means having a supported run-time, so both of my principle platforms are a problem.

I wish OpenJDK had a little more development on our platform. The Java approach is better than Qt, as you say, but we have a pretty up-to-date Qt, but not so much with Java.

I'm sorry KeePassXC can not be compiled on our systems. (looking at the build instructions, I don't actually see Ruby, but I also don't know much about porting)

Having a up-to-date build seems critical for KeePass database compatibility.

Another option is Firefox. Our Firefox45 does save passwords, and can be used as a password manager for Dooble or any other new browser that lacks a password manager. It's a very heavy client for just remembering passwords. Synchronizing used to be a problem, and I haven't tried for a while.

Another possibility is Google password. Without Chrome, it is quite limited, but as long as we can access Google from our platform, it looks possible. I may give it a try. If I can access it from Firefox45, that would be a benefit.

Try turning the radio off then on again. Look for the WiFi led to come on before enabling the radio with XWLAN.

I got my passwords from Firefox45 to Strongbox on IOS, but keepassx on ArcaOS won't import the database because it says "Unsupported KeePass database version".

Wikipedia says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KeePassX

As of December 2021, KeePassX is no longer actively maintained. [4]

There is a community fork of KeePassX, called KeePassXC.

Thanks. I know you always have Netlabs-exp enabled, so I looked there. I'm running KeyPassX for OS/2 now.

I wish there was an easy way to import a password list.

Keepass sounds like it would work. Where can I get it (just looked on NetLabs...)

All Keepass and keepassx and keepass* claim to be interoperable. Keepass touch is in the Apple App store.

Password managers are a good thing. But now we need them to work on our computers, phones, tablets, watches, etc. Is there any solution for ArcaOS users?

Some password managers are open-source? Can any of them be (easily) ported?

I shipped the DVD to Jacco last week. I notified him of shipment and tracking number by e-mail.

Networking / Re: No files in network folders workplace shell

I've been using Samba client for browsing other computers.

But if it works in command line, but not in the Workplace shell, you might look at the folder properties Include tab and see if WPS is hiding files from you.

It's been a while since I supported OS/2 Warp3, but two ideas...

1. check that os2ldr and os2krnl are there on hard drive.
2. try to run sysinstx c: to make sure system files are where they are supposed to be.

Applications / Media-downloader

I saw the news about Media-downloader, but I don't really understand how to install it.

I used 7z to make a mediadownloader folder, and when I run media-downloader.exe, I get a bunch of notices.

I found and installed ffmpeg using ANPM, so that was one message. Here are the rest.

Code: [Select]

[media-downloader] To Disable These Checks, Do The Following:-
[media-downloader] 1. Go To "Configure" Tab.
[media-downloader] 2. Go To "General Options" Sub Tab.
[media-downloader] 3. Uncheck "Show Version Info When Starting".

How can I fix the rest of these messages?
