"Pack this tree" on XWorkplace - ArcaOS
« on: September 11, 2020, 12:32:17 am »
Hi

I have a little issue with ArcaOS 5.0.6.

I always like to install the full XWorkplace full over ArcaOS since I use the "Right click, Folder Action - Pack this tree" and some other feature like the OS/2 Kernel and WPS Classes view.

But now that I installed ArcaOS 5.0.6 I noticed it has XWorkplace 1.0.13.1 preinstalled, and I'm not sure if I should install version 1.0.13 full over it. And I'm not able to find any 1.0.13.1 installer.

Hi martin,

I just deleted the WARPIN entry for the ArcaOS install and installed the full version where I wanted it then deleted the xwp dir in sys dir. 

I might be considered an old curmudgeon by many but I have been using OS/2 since version 2.1 and now being in my 80s am rather set in my ways which is why it takes ages for me to get a new install to the way I expect it to be - this one is taking longer because I have to change the M$ flat style icons to OS/2 sloped ones, if anyone knows a quick way of doing that please let me know.

"Right click, Folder Action - Pack this tree" works fine, but it has no icon. Put an icon into System Setup-> Extended Menu Options-> Folder actions. Then add:
Path and file name: C:\sys\apps\xwps\bin\packtree.cmd
Parameters: %*
Working directory empty

Adjust the drive letter, as required.

It is also a good idea to modify C:\sys\apps\xwps\bin\packtree.cmd to change the ZIP parameters (in the command) to -r9yS. "y" handles symlinks, and "S" handles hidden, and system, files (case is important).

Personally, I don't see any reason to do that. The installer should be available, but be aware that the non Arca Noae subscription package (which is at HOBBES) is missing a couple of things (which probably won't be removed, if they already exist). In fact, it is quite likely that 1.0.13.1 only changes the Arca Noae specific parts, so no freely available version would be needed, since nothing has changed.

I have to change the M$ flat style icons to OS/2 sloped ones, if anyone knows a quick way of doing that please let me know.

Hmm.. I suppose you could use the eStyler to change to another "theme". These usually include icons also. This way you can "go back" to Warp4 style, Warp3, etc within seconds.

For my case, I always loved how Warp3 looked like, especially the sunken edges on select bars in menus.
Warp4 already came with flat select bars in menus, and.. for my taste.. wasn't looking as good anymore.
So.. if you perhaps know a way how to get the sunken edges back... : ]

Two examples:
Warp 3: https://www.operating-system.org/betriebssystem/bsgfx/ibm/os2-scr-08.gif
Warp4: https://www.operating-system.org/betriebssystem/bsgfx/ibm/os2warp4-scr-a5.png

Mind the difference:
The Warp3 screenshot has sunken edge (no colour) select bars (see the "Öffnen" menu entry), while Warp4 already had the blue background (XP-style) select bars already. (See the "Open as" menu entry)


So.. if anyone knows a way (or maybe thirdparty eStyler "theme") to get the sunken edge select bars in ArcaOS.. please let me know *__*

I too have also liked the sunken selection bar.  That might be a good addition to XWP if possible.  But as always, programmers are few and funds short.

Hi ivan

Computer -> System Setup -> Appearance -> Icon Themes comes in useful although you may want to add in themes from eCS to give more choice.

Hi Pete,

It would be a good idea except there is no 'icon Themes' under 'Appearance', the nearest is 'Scheme Palette' which doesn't change the icons.

BTW are you going to update your USBCFG to include the XHCD driver?

Well, yes there is, or there should be. It runs C:\SYS\APPS\ITHEME\ITHEME.EXE with working directory set to C:\SYS\APPS\ITHEME. Of course, if you have unexpectedly changed something, it may not exist.

I guess the 3D look for selected menu items is hard-coded in pmmerge.dll. Even the scheme palette doesn't provide that option.

Hi ivan

Unless you somehow managed to deselect it during installation both eCS and ArcaOS installed ithemes.exe somewhere on your, usually boot, drive. If not you should find it on the ArcaOS installation media [DVD/USB]:\CID\SERVER\ARCAPKG\ITHEME.WPI


Re: USBcfg

Yes, I am currently working on it, been having a few health issues that have prevented me doing much of anything for a while, months in fact, but am now getting back into a couple of projects slowly as health improves.


Regards

Pete

Hi Doug and Pete,

I couldn't find it on the hard disk so I installed it from the DVD.  I am now a happy camper with my usual icons back - thanks

Pete, take care of yourself and don't over do it too soon.

Thanks for the feedback. I have the "Pack this tree" back on the WPS. Thanks Doug.

Hi all, I've finally ported my GetRealCase function to REXX and have created a replacement for XWP's packtree.cmd. I always found it annoying that the original script always creates uppercased zip filenames. (I guess it's an XWP bug when the Configuration folder feature is used.)

Here's a replacement/extension. It also adds the zip option 'S' (include system and hidden files):
  • Create a new file. Give it the name e.g. PackTreeRealCase.cmd.
  • Copy the contents of the following code into it.
  • Then open the properties of the program object System Setup ->  XWorkplace Configuration Folder -> Folder actions -> Pack tree.
  • Under "Path and filename" replace the entry with: <path>PackTreeRealCase.cmd, where <path> is the path where you placed the .cmd file. Let the other fileds empty.
  • To restore the original behavior, just restore the entry, e.g. C:\sys\apps\xwps\bin\packtree.cmd

Code: [Select]
/* REXX ------------------------------------------------------------------ */
/* This is a replacement for XWP's packtree.cmd.                           */
/* It works around the XWP flaw to always return the filename of a folder  */
/* in uppercase.                                                           */
/* Therefore it uses the GetRealCase function. That uses SysFileTree,      */
/* which uses DosFind* to query the real case of a file spec.              */
/* Unfortunately DosFind* returns only the last segment in the correct     */
/* case, so it must be processed segment-wise.                             */
/* Additionally, several ZipOptions are specified and the default value    */
/* (the last one) was changed.                                             */
