Re: MINT: We don't make this easy do we?

I know they're next to useless for browsing the web in general, but I am making my own site and I'm trying to ensure it displays correctly on old machines using old browsers, which is easy enough although writing the back end of the CMS to work on the same browsers is proving more problematic...

Re: MINT: We don't make this easy do we?

Netsurf is the best browser around but you can only use it as text only. Except if you are one of those lucky SV or CTPCI owners. It is reported slow rendering images even on CT60 Falcon machines though. Links browser isn't bad. From what I know, netsurf target users is actually Atari high-end user...

Re: MINT: We don't make this easy do we?

Are you using Bing or Yahoo search? When I put in "atari highwire" Google came out with "Highwire download | SourceForge.net" as first item. The latest download there is from May 2010. May be Mono has a later build. My guess is that most webpage layout will not work well on it. I...

Re: EasyMint shell?

Unfrortunately this will not work as it is other direction. In our case we want to connect USB printer to parallel port. It is necessary to have USB host in that case and it is not so easy. Retroprinter will use Raspberry pi to do the USB host. I know it's the other direction, that's why I say to s...

Re: EasyMint shell?

The beginning of the series mentioned that EasyMint is an automated way of installing Mint.
So of course the instructions are incompatible because these instructions are all manual.

Do you have a D drive of type e2fs ?
