Where to search for ArcaOS updates?

2019-05-04 14:36:52 -- eCo Software [os2.guru]

We are accumulating all information about OS update at this page: os2.guru/update

Here is the instruction how to update Firefox 38 Firefox 45.


ArcaOS - includes modern Firefox

2019-04-29 12:45:47 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

One of the arguments why you should upgrade to ArcaOS, it contains firefox 38. and you can update it to firefox 45.

it's impossible start firefox 38 and 45 in previous versions of eCS, OS/2 Warp. (many people made efforts but failed because it's impossible select needed libraries).

The users ask about Firefox 38:

  • Firefox 38: after ArcaOS installation you can use youtube and play videos. In several minutes / hours it stops playing. How to use youtube with Firefox 38?
  • You can't print from Firefox. So you should generate pdf files (and print PDF from PDF viewer). Question: how to improve quality of the PDF files? increase dpi? by default you get 150 dpi and text documents have poor quality.
  • Firefox 38 crashes often. How to increase stability?

OS/2 + AVITO

2019-03-25 01:10:31 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

How to enter into AVITO profile from OS/2? reCAPTCHA doesn't work with Firefox 38 so you can't login.

  • Main secret - reCAPTCHA is not used for some Android devices
  • change user agent to
    Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 7.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Focus/1.0 Chrome/59.0.3029.83 Mobile Safari/537.36
  • remove cookies related to AVITO
  • select Add item. so you can see simplified Login dialog. without reCAPTCHA
  • now you are logged to the site
  • change user agent to
    Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; Warp 4.5; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0

Switch OS/2 to your national language

2019-02-08 13:20:47 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [eCo Software]

eCo Software released LIP package Basic, it translates objects on desktop to other languages.

Download: http://os2.guru/lip

Current version contains resources for: Czech / German / Spanish / Finnish / Italian / Japanese / Korean / Norwegian / Portuguese / Russian / Swedish.

Even if you run this basic switcher, many programs start talking your language because LIP package switches LANG variable. (applications which are using ECOLANGE library and other)

 

Development of LIP packages:

  • New languages: you can translate desktop object names to your language,
  • If you have translated a system utility or an application, we can distribute it with LIP package among other users talking your language.

The members of eCo Software are translating OS/2 system components and applications since 90-th. We are collaborating with european OS/2 translators.

Several weeks ago we have updated Device Manager for OS/2. Smart utility which shows information about hardware devices.

PIC:

For developers: if you have useful code aimed to detect devices (Serial port, cameras, RAID controllers..) then you can share this code with us (we will mention your participation on the site)

For users: Send us short messages via the utility to improve output

  • The models of devices are not decoded sometimes.
  • name of manufacturer can be simplified.

If you look at Windows experience. Embedded Device manager is the main tool to setup re-installed Windows system. The utility informs what devices don't have drivers or work with troubles. Step by step, every user can resolve the troubles by himself.

ArcaOS 5.0.3 now available

2018-08-25 20:03:59 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [Arca Noae]

Arca Noae is pleased to announce the immediate availability of ArcaOS 5.0.3, the third maintenance release of ArcaOS 5.0 (Blue Lion).

ArcaOS 5.0.3 is (again) the result of many hours of collaborative work to keep up-to-date and to further refine ArcaOS 5.0. Post-install fixes are included, and these will be made available for separate download as part of the ArcaOS 5.0 Support & Maintenance subscription. In the interim, a full download of the refreshed media image is required to obtain all of these fixes and updates.

ArcaOS 5.0.3 includes over 40 updates and fixes since 5.0.2. The USB stick image package (available as a separate download for ArcaOS licensees with current support and maintenance subscription) has also been updated to incorporate the latest changes in ArcaOS 5.0.3.

A bootable ArcaOS 5.0.3 USB stick may be created from any major operating system at hand (Windows, Linux, MacOS, and of course, OS/2, eComStation, and ArcaOS). Once the image is restored, eject, re-insert, and simply copy your personalized ISO (separately downloaded) to the stick per the included directions (also detailed in the ArcaOS support wiki). The stick may then be inserted into any USB 2.0-controlled port in the target system, and used to boot into the ArcaOS installer.

If everything is working in your current installation, it may be prudent to wait for the subscription content to become available, as Arca Noae has not classified any of the 5.0.3 updates as critical.

If you have experienced difficulty installing ArcaOS 5.0.2, the fixes and updates included in 5.0.3 may address your issue(s).

For a complete list of updates in this release, see the ArcaOS wiki.

To download your fresh ISO, simply visit your customer portal page, select the Orders & Subscriptions link on the navigation panel to the left, then click on the order for your ArcaOS license. Once there, click the download link to request a fresh ISO, and wait for your notification email.

We at Arca Noae would like to thank our development partners, bww bitwise works, GmbH and Netlabs.org for their continued contributions to the OS/2 platform. Monetary contributions to offset their operating costs may be made either through Arca Noae at https://www.arcanoae.com or bww bitwise works, GmbH at http://www.bitwiseworks.com.
