Ein paar Fragen zu Schriften

The conclusion I make, from reading the text, is that LaserMaster dissolved Digital Typeface Corporation and dumped the NimbusQ font engine, focusing on large laser prints. This due to that TrueType won as the digital typeface. NimbusQ was abandoned around 1992/1993. The original creator of NimbusQ was Mike Parker, and he probably got back the copyright of NimbusQ, but did not care. I asked about it and his son did not know what NimbusQ was or anything about the copyright. If you do google searc...

Ein paar Fragen zu Schriften

I know that Gene had in mind to replace the NImbusQ with a new font engine. This was after NewDeal ended business operation, and Breadbox took over. It was about the same time when Gene released the updated UI for Geos, I can't recall what time it was, but it when Gene had the Två Katter site. I know, as I discusssed this with him. It seems that NimbusQ was abandoned when TrueType came, even if its not mentioned by name you can read a story here about DTC: http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-96689.html...

Ein paar Fragen zu Schriften

Well, as I gather it is MIke Parker who is the original creator of NimbusQ. Still the NimbusQ font engine is adapted to PC/Geos, maybe it was such an extensive work to adapt it to PC/Geos, as it might be considered as a new creation, which makes Gene Anderson as the copyright holder? The best thing would be to ask Gene Anderson. Maybe Falk have done that already?

Ein paar Fragen zu Schriften

I switch to English here. I have checked the fonts and the font engine in PC/Geos. It is no legal problem to use the fonts and the NimbusQ font engine in PC/Geos, as what I can find, Geoworks have penned a perpetual (= forever) license to use the fonts and the font engine in PC/Geos and paid a one time fee for it. I did e-mail with Frank, and he told me that all the rights were transfered from Geoworks to Breadbox when he purchased PC/Geos from Geoworks. The same rights have now been transfered ...

Geos and Dosbian

Zitat von »t.hass« Hi Hans, Zitat von »hanslse« The drawback with this screen is that I have to build a box for it. Any hints? Use Plexiglas and make it look like the while Polycarbonate iMac (1st Gen Intel). Then I will surely buy one But I fully agree that using a 1024x768 display it the best option. Personally I'm using an Eizo FlexScan L365 at the moment. You can easily mount a Raspi on the back side of the screen. I made some progress with the Pi/GEOS on the base of Raspbian OS Lite: - pig...

DOSBox Netzwerkzugriff

This does not work for me in Ensemble with PPP configuration in DOSBox.The modem connects, it looks as it should do.When I start WebMagick browser, I get a bit dialog saying that I need to configure my browser for JavaScript. In the FTP client I get socket error 25. In the IRC Chat clinet I get socket error. LSPPP works well and connects as it should.. mTCP works well in DOSBox. I can Ping the DNS and get reply 4 times. Any hints? Something missing in GEOS.INI? Hans

I have decided to try to make a cardboard prototype, before the final box. Just to figure out possible solutions. I think I have figured how to do it by studying how the 7 inch box is made and other builds too. I will post photos here. I hope there will be vaccine for the Covid-19 so I can come to the meeting in Syhra in November, there we can have a Raspberry Pi/DOSBox Lab. I think the best option for the moment, to develop Ensemble is to make a DOSBox for Ensemble, working on several platforms...

Zitat von »t.hass« Zitat von »hanslse« I set the screen to 797x452 This sounds like you are using GEOS in "Window Mode" under X11. The key feature of DOSBIAN is that DOSBox runs without the X-Window system on the kernel frame buffer. Could you please confirm, that 0.74-2 also scales to 16:9 in this configuration too. Thomas Hi Thomas, Sorry for late answer, I have been overwhelmed at work, we are reorganizing at it takes a lot of energy, and when I get home I am exhausted, and have no energy to...

Geos and Dosbian

Just one reflection: There is one advantage to just add NE2000 support to the "standard" DOSBox 074-2 for the Raspian. In a DOSBox window it is possible to utilize wide screen 16:9, like for example, I have a Raspberry Pi 3 B with the official 7 inch screen. To make Ensemble work in wide screen, I use the 800x600 driver and by using Monitoreinstellung from Jörg Polzfuss I set the screen to 797x452, and make Ensemble wide screen. In Dosbian it is always 4:3, and if I have a wide screen, I can't u...

Zitat von »t.hass« I build a quick n' dirty deb package that will install a custom dosbox binary in /usr/local/bin. It will also read/write it's configuration to $HOME/.dosbox/dosbox-0.74.conf so it will not interfere with the existing version. By default [sdl]->usescancodes=true is set. I wold like to know, if this works for the Swedish keybord in GEOS. For German it works expect of AltGr, so you have to press Ctrl+Alt+<key>. If you disable "usescancodes" you can also try to modify the german ...

Sorry, I have not had the time for testing this weekend, as I planned and hoped for. Time optimist? Hopefully I will have time this week. I am also waiting for an 8 inch 4:3 monitor. The menu system looks very cool you are working on! Hans

Geos and Dosbian

Hello Thomas, This sounds really great! I like your splash! I am really for this, you can count on me for betatest. The backside is that I am no programmer I think that the Dosbian is a very good idea, but it gets a bit off track, with all the Windows 95/98 stuff and the adaptions for it. But I like the way Dosbian works with the configuration and setup. Dosbian gets the time from internet, which makes real time clock dispensable/unnecessary, and so on. I would like to see more of a pure DOSBox ...

If you have a Geos installation which you can zip, you can make a zip-file of it, and save it to a USB memory. Also, to that USB memory save a DOS Unzip tool, for example FreeDOS Unzip and a memory extender, or pkunzip. Attach the USB memory to the Raspeberry Pi. Boot Dosbian. Mount the USB memory in the DOSBox window like this: "mount d /media/usb0" without the quotation marks. In DOSBox unzip the Geos zip file. Simple way to do it? Maybe, if you know the steps to do it. One cool thing is, that...
