Regarding a screenshot utility go to hobbes and search for gotcha.  That utility allows selective screenshots, full screen,full windows or selected areas of windows.

For setting the default font the only utility I jnow of is setdf101 (available on hobbes) but it has a very limited set of fonts.  The other thing would be to use an ini editor to change the fonts that way (not recommended unless you are sure you know what you are doing).

The best person to tell you about Japanese is Alex Taylor.  He is also our font expert.

To see all the Japanese glifs you need the full utf8 font (search these forums for information on that Martin brought it up some time ago -,1806.0.html).

Hi Dave,

It is good to see that there is a move towards adding bldlevel info to these DLLs, it should make keeping track of them a little easier.

It was a very long time ago when I had problems with SUSE and I moved over to a deb based system, which as far as I am concerned works much better - a case of 'once bitten twice shy' I don't trust the RPM package system.

Here we see another drawback of the RPM way of doing things.  Since Lucide is provided as a WPI,  why didn't whoever built it add the obscure required DLLs to it?  From what I have seen the WPI format allows for testing of various files to check they are the ones needed and put them in the required places.

Thinking about it I suppose the fact there is no way of knowing which version of a RPM loaded DLL is, no buildlevel, which makes it rather difficult.  It also assumes that all the newer DLLs are backwards compatible with the earlier ones, which isn't always the case.  This was the reason I gave up using SUSE Linux many years ago - updating one program had the tendency to break others.

Hi Lars,

Here are the outputs from usbres and lsusb for a similar adapter to the one Neil is using.  It passes the multimedia keys from my Logotech PS/2 keyboard but on a  Kensington USB keyboard they are not seen even the ones with identical keycodes.

Just a question for clarification.  Does the printer have a built in postscript interpreter?  I ask because many years ago I helped setup a company with Xerox Pantone printers and they had quite a sophisticated postscript interpreter.

If your printer can do postscript  and you have a PPD file for it you should be able to add it to the PSPRINT Driver and run it over the network using the SLPR output port.  I run all my Brother colour laser printers that way.

Is that a PS/2 to USB converter or is it the part that plugs onto the PS/2 header and hence you are using the keyboard as a PS/2 keyboard?

Hi Martin,

When you say you want to reprogram the commandline window what do you want to do with it?  If it is to change the size on opening use something like /k mode 80,45% in the parameters section of the properties dialog box, I use that to give me a reasonable sized window for things like the dir command.  It is also possible to customise the dir command with something like SET DIRCMD=/o:-d /p  (which gives a sorted by date and paged display), in CONFIG.SYS.

Anything else , sorry but you are on your own.

BTW, Thanks for the ME Editor.  I find it useful when I need a text file open and available on the desktop for days - the other editors force a reboot after a week if they are left open.

I should mention that if you have your NAS box on 24/7 and you want to auto connect to it when you start your computer you can do that.  Mapper file menu, 'autostart', enable'. it will put a start netdrive connections in the 'Startup' folder.

No need to go to all that trouble if you had selected samba client during setup (I think it is the default). 

If you look in the network folder that looks like the old IBM internet one you should find an icon labelled 'ArcaMapper Connections', double click on that  and click on 'Network neighbourhood', click on the refresh button and if you are connected to a network with Samba servers on it they should show up.  Select the one you want and connect as necessary.

Until such time as those looking and updating the USB stack manage to update the usbkbd.sys to enable non standard keycodes extra keys on usb keyboards will never work, in fact you will never see the keycodes.

There is a linux program that was developed to get that information to allow the extra keys and functions (lights on the keys) to be used with the Corsair K95 gaming keyboard on linux.  I have a copy of it and the other tools if anyone is interested.

Hi Neil,

If you have to use a USB adapter  then as far as I know there is no way that you can use the extra keys.  I have 4 USB keyboards with extra keys that work as standard keyboards without problems but the extra keys are dead.

On the other hand if you can use it as a PS/2 keyboard plugged into a PS/2 socket then you can use the WIN95KEY software - it even allows assigning functions to special keys.  I have a Logitech multimedia PS/2 keyboard plugged nto a PS/2 socket with all the keys operational and assigned to such programs as PMMail Firefox PMseek and so on.

I just tried that keyboard with a USB adapter (don't know the brand but it looks like the one you show) and the extra keys are not available.  I seem to remember Lars daying something about the USB keyboard driver not having the extra keys function in it.

Thanks Martin.

I hope they have many testers with a wide range of new motherboards including those with AMD Ryzen processors otherwise he is likely wasting his time.

Pete, are you thinking about the Intel Speedstep Fix?  If so that came out in FP14 for warp4.

We never looked at anything for Intel processors, we were always AMD or other non Intel processors from the start.

Fixpaks for warp 4 and 4.5 are still available at  you just have to drill down to what you want.
