Hi Andi

I have never needed to try.

You could email Jan (DFSee) and ask  :-)

Hi

@Devid: Yes, I see the same.

@Dave: I get the same library message when loading os2world.com - no need to click on any links.

Maybe Martin has some website tidying to do...

Hi Andi

This is probably what you are looking for

Have fun  :-)

Hi Andi

No experience with a T540p but suggest you try using "boot with own values..." instead of using the defaults and check any install information about installing from USB drive.

Is there a "Compatibility" setting in the EUFI BIOS setup? - needs to be on.

Hardware / Re: HP Printer support
« on: October 12, 2019, 05:01:00 pm »
Hi All

If you need HP scanner support it is fairly easily added despite not being available in RPM packages. From the HPscan readme.txt:-

If using cups/hplip installed from *RPM* packages:

sane is required - http://smedley.id.au/tmp/sane-backends-1.0.27-os2-20190321.zip

hpaio.dll is required - http://smedley.id.au/tmp/hpaio-3.19.5-os2-20190609.zip
  1] Unzip the hpaio.dll file to [PathTo\]sane\lib\sane\hpaio
  2] Unzip the models.dat file to /usr/share/hplip/data/models/models.dat

Locate the already installed hplip.conf file and copy to the %ETC% directory
 - usually [BootDrive]:\MPTN\ETC and modify paths as necessary.


When scanning the sane command line uses a URI rather than a conf file name and starts like this:-

   scanimage -d hpaio:/net/envy_photo_6200_series?ip=192.168.1.252

Storage / Re: ArcaPS 5.0.4 install only sees 1 hard drive
« on: October 06, 2019, 05:30:35 am »
Hi Keith

If the eCS system does not have OS2AHCI.ADD installed then it must be using the DANIS506.ADD driver - check the config.sys file to confirm.

Check what driver(s) ArcaOS is using - if OS2AHCI.ADD is loaded in the config.sys file then REM that line and make sure the DANIS506.ADD line exists.

Does that solve the problem?

Hi Keith

eCS uses an earlier OS2AHCI.ADD driver so you could try swapping the AN version for the eCS version. If it makes a difference then AN need to know.

Hardware / Re: CUPS EPSON ET-4700 printer problems
« on: September 21, 2019, 02:53:45 am »
Hi roberto

Why in pdf format? -  cups logs are usually plain text - and why so small?

You need to look through the error log for lines starting with [E] which may give a clue as to the problem... Looks like gutenprint52+usb failure close to the start of the log. Not sure what ippfind is but it looks like it may be missing (or installed in the wrong place) and further down the log it looks like \"/@unixroot/usr/lib/cups/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper.exe\" is missing/not found.

Possibly you have an incomplete installation...


Regards

Pete

Hi roberto

Point your browser to the cups gui http://localhost:631/admin

Check the option "Save debugging information for troubleshooting" then click Change Settings.

Attempt to print the cups test page and, hopefully, the log will give us a clue as to what is going wrong.

Applications / Re: About bldlevel
« on: September 14, 2019, 08:12:28 pm »
Hi Martin

As the .msg file exists it seems that the messages bldlevel.rexx wants to display do not exist in the .msg file.

Hi Valery

Just had a play with bldlevel.rexx - copied the file to bldlvl.cmd and ran it in an os2 window.

Not very encouraging as all it reports is:-

SYS0317: The system cannot find message  xxxx
in message file OSO001.MSG.

where xxxx is a choice of 8069, 8070, 8073,  8075.

Looks like either I am not using the rexx file correctly or it is looking for non-existent messages in OSO001.MSG.

Pete

Hi Martin

If you have a copy of USbcfg installed then you should also have a copy of GETDESC.DLL which USBcfg uses to extract buildlevel information. However, this DLL is built to work with Pascal coding so would probably need a bit of reworking to work with "c" code.

The DLL was put together by Lars, of USB drivers fame, so you could ask him if he could build a "c" version.


Later Edit: The zip file Lars sent me contains source (cpp, def files) and makefile so you could probably modify it yourself. Let me know if you want a copy.

Internet / Re: The new browser / QT5

Hi All

Will there be an email/newsreader client to go with the new browser?

Programming / Re: Mozturbo help
« on: August 26, 2019, 01:21:36 am »
Hi All

If an app I write offers a browser or email link then the app will rummage through the os2.ini file to locate the default browser/email client. Obviously if the user has not set the default browser/email client then the link does not work - and I usually remember to code a popup message as to why clicking the link failed :-)

So tools like Configure Internet Applications are very useful, easier to use than an ini file editor - but only if the user runs the tool and enters the necessary data.

Applications / Re: BS_Info v2.2 and AVxCat
« on: August 25, 2019, 02:55:15 am »
Hi All

Just installed BS_Info v2.2 and gave it a try.

I am a little concerned about the IFS information displayed regarding my fat32 driver:-

   fat32.ifs   v0.10.r204
   *** very dangerous ***


Does anyone know why this fat32 driver is "*** very dangerous ***"?

Could the answer explain why several usb drives formatted using the above fat32 driver have had a few problems? - the latest was my D: drive which started displaying the directories listed in the root of the drive in a subdirectory repeatedly. To show an eg:-

D:
    \Images
    \Docs
    \Vids
    \Temp
                 \Images
                 \Docs
                 \Vids
                 \Temp
                             \Images
                              \Docs
                              \Vids
                              \Temp


Opening any directory results in "no objects found..." message; using the cmdline no files are found.

Guess I'll have to ask Jan (DFSee) to help sort this mess out.


Regards

Pete
