Utilities / Is there a cron application that works on ArcaOS?
« on: August 14, 2020, 04:47:28 pm »
For years I used a unix port called cron/2 to perform various backup and other tasks.  At some time between ArcaOS 5 and 5.04, it stopped working.  By that I mean that while the program runs, it will not start any applicatiions.  I've also tried a cron application written in REXX, but it won't start anything for me either.  Does anyone know of one that works on the current version of ArcaOS?

Hardware / How to find or extract a Postscript printer driver?
« on: March 02, 2018, 06:30:45 pm »
I just bought an HP OfficeJet Pro 8740 multifunction printer.  It supports Postscript 3 emulation, according to HP, and their Universal Postscript Driver does work in Windows 7.  Is it possible to extract a .ppd file from the Windows driver installer files that could be imported into the ArcaOS5 Postscript driver?  The printer works with the .ppd file from a Linux CUPS installation, but it doesn't offer the choices of which tray, which paper sizes, etc., that the Universal Postscript Driver does.

Networking / openvpn configuration?
« on: December 09, 2017, 01:42:32 pm »
I see that there is a port of openvpn in the unix ports section of Netlabs Projects.  I can't tell who created it, maintains it, or how to configure it.  I have openvpn working on a Linux box, but don't know where to put the pieces in ArcaOS5.  Can anyone offer some knowledge about this?
