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.

Which RPM ZIP file package contains (presumably) GBM.DLL?
There is a zip and wpi available on hobbes.

I just tested here with FF 38 in eCS - yes there's a warning "This version of Firefox is no longer supported. Please upgrade to a supported browser. Dismiss" but it still works fine for me.


I guess I am actually getting the message that This version of Firefox is not supported (despite being Seamonkey) too but have gotten so used to it on sites that I don't even notice it anymore.

Are you using the IMAP service or something else?

I tend to use POP3 for GMail but at odd times (when someone sends a full HTML email) I use IMAP and that is on firefox 17.11.
What he is describing, sounds like he is loading the webmail interface.  The bit that something is loading in the sidebar sounds like the messenger.  I logon with Seamonkey, which means that FF should also work... at least FF38.  The part that may be causing a problem though is the messenger, I do not logon to it but I don't recall if I set it that way because it was causing a problem of if I just didn't want it logged in when I was dealing with mail.

Hi Rich.

It is good that the component is going to be included on ArcaOS and had been bug-tested/optimized, but it would be desirable to have something integrated to XWorkplace SOM objects (I guess it is the folder class object) and that can be also included on that project.

I will ask Lewis if there can be a chance to include that project has part of XWorkplace instead of being a separate close source project, but I will have to wait until he releases ArcaOS, I guess he is very busy on this days.

This is just a guess based on Rich's comment but I suspect that to add it to xworkplace would require someone to write an implementation from scratch as I think the code belongs to eCo and is licensed by Arca Noae and not owned (again this is just how I read it).

Hi Andy,

I am using Paul's GS 9.15 and gsview 5.0 and am able to print to both PScript and PCL printers using os2prn rather than pswrite or ps2write.

Would you mind posting your INI files? I have not gone back to attempt to compile the modified version of development environment is primarily VAC, so I have to do an EMX setup first. I did also receive a response from Russell Lang who stated:

"...Note that pswrite is not hard coded into GSview.  It's just one of the devices for which that GSview pre-populates some configuration option.  You can add ps2write without recompiling GSview.  Just add it from the GUI, or edit the gvpm.ini file to add it (probably quicker)..."

I am hoping to continue that conversation with him. While the responses in this thread are very welcome, most of them have been a YEY/NAY type of a thing, no one has actually spelled out what specifically needs to be changed and where, meaning, the exact details of let's say gvpm.ini file, so far that means I am nowhere further to working through this.
I built gsview 5 with the klibc gcc, not emx... not sure what is needed to build it with emx.
I did edit the ini files in an attempt to see if I could use ps2write as a result of this thread but the os2prn is stock.

I am using Paul's GS 9.15 and gsview 5.0 and am able to print to both PScript and PCL printers using os2prn rather than pswrite or ps2write.

I would be interested to know if this works for others... I have tried with both with and without libpathstrict and get the problem you initially had.

Do you have socktidy?  It is installed by the ecs beta 2.2b.  There are some that have identified problems with injoy with it running.

I'm going to Warpstock 2016, I had complete the goal to assist and I will do my best to live video stream the event.

So, based on the tentative agenda, are there any questions you want me to present to the speakers?


Question for Yuri Dario:
Any plans to update Recoll?

Programming / Re: obtaining programmer editors

I thought we found out that Visual SlickEdit version 4 was released as free abandonware. It was on the eComStation e-mail list, but I can't find it now.

I have a licensed copy of version 4, but I'm a little curious about the status of the program.
I searched my emails, so far, the only reference I can find is on the UnixOS2 list in 2006 in the thread "Editor suggestions".  In it you mention the abandonware and possible freeware state of it.

Does anyone know how to obtain either Visual Slickedit or Rimstart programmers editors at this point?

I don't recall the specifics as assoedit is just easier but you can right click, properties, Menu and you can add/remove/set default in there.

Are you trying to compile through the OS/2 port of GCC?....

Yes Rick.

My goal is try to use as much as open source compilers and tools to test the samples of the "OS/2 PM Programming"  book from Charles Petzold.

I will be trying GNU MAKE that is on  "kbuild-make" RPM and the LINK program that is also on the GNU tools ported to OS/2.  If I get stuck I may use something from the OS2Toolkit, but let see if I can pull this samples with open source first.


You would probably be better off using wmake from open watcom, and consequently just using OW entirely, than make as wmake has a switch to make it nmake compatible.  wmake will work with gcc if you desire but OW is open source so would fit you desires in that regard.
