Applications / Re: Firefox crashes on maps
« on: September 22, 2017, 02:24:56 am »
Hi

@Andy
Same build of Seamonkey and the crashes are repeatable.

The only difference I can see between Firefox and Seamonkey is that Firefox beeps when it crashes, Seamonkey does not and no trp file is generated.

@Dave
Seamonkey has only been able to use Google Maps in "Lite Mode" for a long time. Doubt if it is related to bandwidth, more likely that Seamonkey is an "unsupported browser" ie it is not Chrome or IE.


Regards

Pete

We don't have to guess:
https://support.google.com/maps/answer/3096703
It checks:
browser
OS
graphics card

We will fail the latter two (even if you have an otherwise supported graphics card, the driver would not be reported as compatible as it is looking for 3D).

Hi Andy
Seamonkey 2.42.9esr crashes here when using Google maps as a result of zooming in and moving the map around.
Regards
Pete

2.42.9esr Build identifier: 20170816231600
Works fine in all the maps I tried, zooming, moving, etc.

Using Dave's latest Seamonkey I do not have any problems with:
https://www.google.com/maps
https://www.google.com/maps
https://www.mapquest.com/

I believe it is built on later Firefox components than in those Firefox builds so it may be fixed in the next Firefox drop.

Setup & Installation / Re: Ghostscript error
« on: May 25, 2017, 04:08:51 am »
I have for years used PMPDF and GhostScript 9.04 (or earlier versions) and setting it up on various eCS system without any problems.
Now I just tried to make it work under ArcaOS, installing the same way as before, but get this error when trying to create a pdf:

As I recall, Ghostscript is automatically installed in ArcaOS, if you installed GS 9.04 and trying to use it, then the DLL from the newer GS is being found (I had the same problem in eCS sometime back when I had ended up installing GS in rpm/yum).

Hi

Another issue that I'm experiencing with this new version, is that if it is turned on (Enable user interface enhancements), the "Windows Themes" program will not load. If I turn eStyler off, "Windows Themes" will be working again.

Here it is the log.

Add THEMEMGR.EXE to the estyler "do not apply enhancements" and apply.  Not sure of why it now conflicts but I have both it and smarwin.exe in there.

I know the Warp v4 CD had them, I am not sure about V3 but there is a good chance, the V4 disks had the floppy images on the CD so that they could be recreated from it.  I am not sure if the images are directly compatible with the VirtualBox floppy, of if the VB floppy can only be connected to a real drive (IOW, I do not know if the floppy can use an image the way the CD can use an ISO and if it can if the image formats are the same).

I am also using Panorama and occasionally have spontaneous system reboots. I wonder if that could be the same problem. Is that driver available anywhere ?
Do the system reboots occur when launching ae.exe or newview.exe?  I often experience a reboot or a system hang when launching one of these two apps.

Once I found where the existing DLLs were, I am now able to use the new stylerlite.  It is not compatible with Styler/2.

sure, this is a replacement for eStylerLite not for SmartWin.

Yuri
Yes, the fact that it is not a replacement for SmartWin is why I end up using both... if SmartWin had been updated then I would just have been using it and not both.  I had never had a problem with running both in the past but now I do have to add smartwin.exe to the estyler exception list.

OK, I found changed the font to Bold and it does not crash Smartwin, changed it back to normal font and still no crash so not sure why it was crashing before.

On OS/2, if you have cache enabled for a filesystem it includes for the USB drives.  If they are not properly ejected on OS/2 they will be marked dirty.  If you plug it back into an OS/2 system does it say it is dirty?

I just saw the basic install screenshot of ArcaOS5 and noticed the multiple desktop manager. Will Object Desktop 2.0 still run on ArcaOS? I currently have it on my eCS 1.2MR install.

I don't have a copy of Object Desktop to be able to test it but there is no reason I know of for it to not work.

OK, that was not where the problem lies.  It turns out to be the same version I have according to the MD5.  The problem may be the version of estyler I am using.  I will check another system and see what it has.

I copied AFCUTL05 from from styler2 but it apparently was also updated from the version I have:
Failed to insert the dialog pages in the settings notebook.
