Have you tried asking that question in the Ask Ubuntu pages?

Have you actually installed the OS/2 guest additions on the Ubuntu virtual box warp guest?  You cant use the windows versions on Linux.  Once you have the Linux version of the additions running you should be able to set the screen resolution in the virtual machine (at least that is what I can do with my vBox on Linux Mint).

No matter what anyone says, the use of OS/2/ArcaOS is going to end-up on the ability to actually install it on modern hardware and that includes AMD processors because of the people in industry having been bitten by the Intel meltdown and spectre CPU bugs.

Hi Martin,

You need to check that zip because here all I get is an error message, see attachment.  Also last night the torrent didn't work.

Hi Remy,

Regarding your Brother ADS 1600W, I have one of those and so far I haven't had to do a document setup on the touch screen because I used the web setup to define the options for the various documents - I also duplicated those options on my Brother DCP-9020cdw printer.

Dave,  I think the problem is that the zip file on hobbes is only a Corrective Service offering and not the complete PMX package. I tried to check the other PMX files on hobbes but hobbes is down at the moment.

If you are running the XFree86 as a window on the OS/2 desktop then I would recommend Gotcha (on hobbes) to take screenshots.

I do that if I need a screenshot when I am using HobX11 - like you I never got XFree86 to work reliably so I boughr Hobx11 and never looked back.

Which Realtek chipset is it?  I ask because there are several realtek drivers as well as the multimac one that you could try.

What you are seeing is to be expected when you log on to a secure network - you have to have somewhere to fill in that information and as far as your laptop is concerned you are on an Ethernet connection where you log in via a web page.

I agree Martin, it is good to see some improvements but I do wish they would do something about the USB3.0 and 3.1 problem.  It is becoming harder to find PCIe based USB2 add in cards that don't use a xHCI based chip working in USB2 mode.  It makes it extremely difficult to use Ryzen based motherboards (no usb keyboards, mouse, trackball etc.).

My experience with Tame on real hardware with a USB scanner was that it worked well with the old USB drivers but stopped working when something was changes with newer drivers and Sane.

Now all the scanning I do is from my Brother colour laser via ftp.

Sorry Martin.

Are you including win 3.1 games in this category?

It might be easier to use the OS/2 version of Sim City 2000.

Hi David,

It is very simple to setup- essentially all you have to do is logon to the the wireless network and away you go.

I have attached a scan of the section of the QIG that I used for initial setup, after that if the wireless network changes it is just a matter of a few clicks in the browser and maybe typing in the network password.

I get the impression that that range extender needs to be powered from the mains which makes it useless if you are out and about.

I use a Tp-Link AC750 WiFi Travel Router that can be powered either from a mains phone chatger or directly from a USB socket. It is small and can be attached to the back of the laptop screen using velcro The setup is via a web browser.

Hi Martin,

Have you looked at the OS/2 games produced by Daniel F Valot  He has some nice disk programs there as well.
