You can run aranym with the -G option, that should open the setup before booting the ROM. And since a commit done Jun 26, you can also use the middle mouse button to enter setup.

Where do I specify the -G using BeeKey?

I'll find a mouse with a 3rd button!

In the command that invokes aranym. Don't ask me where that is specified in BeePi ;)

Note that for the middle mouse button to invoke setup, you have to use the above method, and change the setting in "Keyboard + Mouse", or edit the default config file first, and set

Code: Select all

[IKBD]
MiddleButton = 2


Otherwise the default action for middle button is to release the mouse grab.

So I gave up going down the USB/Pi route.

I found MacAranym, and then unsquashed the filesystem from BeeKey and combined the two.

Now I have MacAranym running Philippe's setup in a window. Perfect for my needs!

Thanks all.

Onwards!

I am happy that you found a solution to use it.
I have originally tested Beekey on a Macbook with OSX 10.6.8 and 10.11 and it was working flawlessly.
Now with a more recent version of OSX, I don’t know.
USB booting on Mac is not an easy topic.

I ended up using files from your EasyAraMiNT beta2 rather than BeeKey. I prefer the simpler setup and vibe.

Anyway, I'm happy! Merci mec

Any chance we can get the beekey hard disk image as a separate download for local aranym installs?

b9 is very nicely done, though i do get an error with netsurf complaining it's running out of memory

Netsurf complain sometimes its running out of memory if you type URL without "http://" or "https://". Maybe that solves your problem wint Netsurf?

Sorry guys but I don’t have time to continue BeeKey and BeePi development now.
I don’t give up, but for the next 2 years I won’t have the necessary time to do it.
All the system files are stored in the directory /H/.system if you want to modify it. BeePi is the most up to date install.

Ah, that is bad news - was really looking forward to seeing how the Raspberry Pi 4 worked. But understandable as real work has to come first. Thanks for everything you have done for BeePi.
