Well, it turned out to have been a very specific anomaly...no explanation how I got there, but yeah, non-repeatable.

David, as nice as your icons are I still prefer the angled Warp 4 style, far easier to see opened items.

Hi mauro,

...frankly talking, I was disappointed finding a poor software availability, consisting in even less of 10% of the free Netlabs repository volume, which I found had a complete software choice to make OS2 working well, and what was eventually missing there I've found then on eCS/2 pages, free as well, including the AN package manager...

I do not look for AN to fullfill this requirement at all...I primarily look for them to focus on the core-OS stuff: kernel, ACPI and various device drivers that either support the newer hardware, or facilitate the transition to it.

To your point though, directionaly it would be nice for AN to start the work on getting various apps transitioned to a well structured deployment and support platform. For me that means RPM packages. They have already tried some of it, the experimental repo is out there, but justifiably this is not their focus (my understanding).

Ah!

Term brings into mind, TERM environmental variable, terminal emulation etc. for the Unix mind. But about the same. I was thinking while I'm testing things I might as well go directly for Ă…siftp or something like that what was on the list at Hobbes.

I'll just have to install first. Probably tomorrow or so ...

I created a few ArcaOS blue program folders.

With the latest Dynamic Icons 2.5.2, it is easy to set up both the Dynamic icon and the OS/2 icon for each folder or program at the same time.  Once done, when one switches from normal to dynamic icons in the folder properties, the icon one wants is used. 

This is my forth update to the arca blue folder icons.

; ) The ticket contains URLs proving that AdBlock Plus is collecting user data for their telemetry functionality. Lewis initially didn't believe me, but after posting an Adblock-internal chatlog, we came to the conclusion to rather recommend UBlock Origin over Adblock Plus in MOZ_INFO.HTML, shipped with ArcaOS.

I assume that Netdrive is supposed to mount your Psion as a drive and it is not correctly mounting.
Wonder what would happen if you used a term program to try to connect?

This is getting so interesting, that I must move ArcaOS install a bit higher on my todo list :) I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "if you used a term program to try to connect?"
A program that was usually used to connect through a modem or null cable to another computer.
There's a bunch of them at https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/?path=%2Fpub%2Fos2%2Fapps%2Fcomm. I haven't used any in some time so can't recommend any that would work with a null cable, perhaps ZOC, it's shareware but likely good enough for testing.

There's also http://www.littlespikeyland.com/psionlink/ that I assume would work.

Bookmarked for the rather last resort. I'm no fan of javanything.

Anyway I would rather see this to work with the Netdrive and plugin or other native way. But we will see how this spans out!

Thanks for the link. Somehow this hasn't come up in my searches.

I:\>help 21

SYS0021: The drive is not ready.

EXPLANATION: One of the following errors occurred:
o  The drive is empty.
o  The drive door is open.
o  The drive is in use.

ACTION: Do one of the following and retry the command:
o  Insert a diskette in the drive.
o  Close the drive door.

Interesting ... Then why on same laptop with Win XP install I can connect with PsiWin with completely same procedure?

This does not compute.
