Re: printing in reactos

yes, I've previously read about Colin Finck progress in printing system, correct me if I'm wrong: it consists in a command line sending a text output to a generic printer driver, of course far away from a WYSIWYG output or else any graphic work, and not sure if every destination printer (or just min...

Re: printing in reactos

Understand, clear.
I did not mention stability because dont'even talk about a system not staying up and running .

I've found my Reactos installation stable enough to be used and go ahead for other items, that's the reason why it deserves my eye on it.
Thank you for answering

printing in reactos

good evening all, I've installed time ago a ROS 0.4.5 version in a Virtualbox machine, running well enough for what it is (a premature alpha version) considering that runs well in a 2010 2Gb RAM netbook Intel Atom cpu, much more than the virtualized XP SP3 same in Virtualbox. From that moment I deci...

Re: things I understood about audio in ROS

right, I have imported some other wav file sample to test in different sound event association, and also to try them with the available multimedia players. First I discovered that only a stereo wav file sample could be accepted for playing with the default ReactOS player and therefore usable in the ...

things I understood about audio in ROS

testing and retesting, I found myself a way to understand how some audio sample could be handled while some other not. Said that obtaining a system sound is tricky to afford because drivers installation under wine is away from cleanliness and simplicity (follow wiki instruction and good luck, a rand...

Re: Samba TNG and printer sharing possibility

Useful to know but not urgent anyway, if I ever wanted to obtain a printed doc now...

Samba TNG and printer sharing possibility

Hi all, i've noticed this application in the software manager, described as "this tool allows the folders/printers sharing between Windows and ReactOS", which I've then downloaded . Deployed from 7zip , it consists in a folder with non-windows executable files. I'd like to learn how to make it work....

2 suggestions on ROS 044 in Vbox

Hi, just like to highlight two things which worked in my case. 1- make a backup copy of the working directory of ROS installation in Virtual Box, when you reached a configuration step that you consider optimal. It will be much useful when you will produce an unrecoverable situation (BSOD, not workin...

After checked some, when I click on Apply, an error message appears "cannot com...

Re: ROS 0.4.4 in Vbox 5.1.18 went well, but no audio

Thank you for replying. I believed ROS has an audio system issue with still few chances of resolution due to lack of knowledge/development, which occours sometimes (or viceversa sound works sometimes). It did not seem to me that audio isn't supported at all.

Re: Colour abnormalities in ReactOS under VirtualBox with VB

I have solved this by selecting (Vbox guest session menu entries); "fit guest screen mode" , otherwise screen resolution in ROS settings could not get into 32 bit mode with the optimal size. Of course you should have applied Guest Addition before
