For what I see you are offering this two books in your facebook post.:
- Business Application Software for the IBM PC. Second Edition by Lon Ingalsbe
- Business Application Software for the IBM PC. Alternate edition with VP-Planner, dBase III/III Plis and WordPerfect. by Lon Ingalsbe

If by any chance you don't sell it and want to dispose it. (some times it happens). Please check the possibility of donating the books to the "Internet Archive Book Drive". It may take some time to be digitized, but at least those will be preserved instead of recycled.

I hate licensing like this as the PDF says one thing and the authours web site says something else.

You are right. Licensing should be clear, open and free for any use, otherwise there is risk.
It may be interesting to keep looking around, the GNU Unifont is nice but Symbola is working better for me.

Symbola worked fine with me (It also says is it free for any kind of use). I also use it in Quassel IRC client and I can also see the Unicode characters on the chat.
GNU Unifont didn't work for Quassel yet.

For the Egyptian Hieroglyph  page  I installed as it says on the page and it is working.

Applications / Unicode Images on Firefox
« on: July 16, 2018, 11:04:32 pm »

Does anybody know what can be missing on the Firefox port or OS/2 to be able to display the Unicode fonts from this page:

Some are showing and the majority does not show. Is it something that is missing on OS/2's Unicode? Any idea or comment which component need to be update and how hard can it be so this will show?

About the Spanish translation of ArcaOS, Alfred is doing a great job and he has more experience using OS/2 in Spanish. I'm just trying to assist him while I also learn the process.

From my side I need to practice a little bit how to create the .inf files so I can review the .ipf translation on the help file.

There are things that I dislike about the translation, but that is because of the age of the platform and that some components has different ways to get translated than others.

One thing is the code page. I'm using 850 for Spanish and I know it works fine, but it is old. I know the modern standard is Unicode but I don't know all the effort it can be to support Unicode on the OS/2 platform for translations. Maybe someone with more experience can explain me that or give their personal opinion.

The other thing is that each component has a different way to be translated, which is logical because some components were made by different developers and maybe with different standards. I would like to hear opinions and maybe see some samples of which is a program that made a good standard for translations. Which do you think is a good reference app that supports translations ?

If someone has a copy of OS/2 Warp 4.52 (MCP2) in Italian or Traditional Chinese please let me know !!


Applications / How to show minimized applications as icons.
« on: July 11, 2018, 04:03:35 am »

Playing with ArcaOS 5 shortcuts to create a little article on the wiki, suddenly I found that some minimized command line sessions started to show as icons (Check attached image). I did not get how I accomplished that. On the next reboot that way to show the minimized sessions disappeared.

Any idea how to turn on/off that ?

Hi Andy

Sorry, I didn't understand you since you said "You can't use the /noacpi".

I would like to confirm that with /noacpi the power button is shutting down ArcaOS and the Fn+Home and Fn+End to increase the brightness of the screen are also working !!

Hi Andy.

One other thing,  you can't use the /noacpi switch on the PSD line in the config.sys (I use it so that the screen brightness can be changed via the FN keys).  You need to hold the key down for 1/2s to 1 sec, if it is going to work.  3s-4s will do a BIOS poweroff (bypassing ACPI and thus no processing to do a clean shutdown).

I just have "PSD=ACPI.PSD" on the config sys without the /noacpi, so I guess it is just a different ACPI standard on the machine. I can not make the power button to call the shutdown procedure. The screen brightness on the SL500 is not working also Fn+Home and Fn+End don't do anything on this machine.

Here it is the Wiki article I had been working on: "ArcaOS 5.x Keyboard Shortcuts‎‎"

Any other shortcuts or more information about the "Not sure how it works" is welcome.

Thanks Andreas.

I didn't have that one on the lists.  I also checked on Styler and Alt+F6 also works to go from the parent to the child window, but it does not toggle back.  I will check more and add it to the list on the wiki.

For IBM applications:
Alt+F6  Toggle between child and parent window
(I found that it doesn't work for help windows.)

Is for IBM applications that has several windows inside it? Do you have some examples of which applications?

- Ctrl + ALT + Shift + o Display list of OS/2 developers (secret from the Desktop focus)

Thanks for that. It seems it no longer works on ArcaOS. So I will remove it from the list I'm making.
