IBM Scroll/Intellimouse driver on OS2 DDPAK — does it work?!

As reported on Warpcast there’s a new driver supposedly for
IBM/Logitech/MS mice at

http://service.software.ibm.com/os2ddpak/html/miceandt/

However it doesn’t do ANYTHING on my system — I still have a 2-button
mouse, the new ScrollPoint Mouse dialog also lists a 2-button mouse + a
new scrolling page, but changing the scrolling settings also does
nothing!

So, have I broken it — does ne1 have the added functionality working?

Btw, the driver has changed (it’s a teeny bit larger than the old
‘mouse.sys’)

Thanks,
        James

TRYING TO USE OS/2

I really want to use this OS but it has other ideas

I’m trying to install OS2 3 Warp Redspine on a Pentium 133 with a 24x Lg
Cdrom Drive

I’ve downloaded the stuff from the IBM site that I understand should fix
the problem with the software not recognising the drive and amended
Config.Sys but the installation hangs after a lot of floppy and HD activity
after putting in Disk One with no helpful error messages

Does it matter where in Config.Sys I insert the line set copyfromfloppy=1?

Any help much appreciated

emtc news-losing posts ?

Periodically, with Emtec News 4.6e, I lose all or part of posts when
replying to one off line mostly.

I have checked the log and the material is also missing there. So it
can;t be the ISP or modem. Mind you the post and mail logs seem to
work whenever they want even when clicked(?)?

Doesn’t happen all the time and as far as I can see it happens whether
with single post or multiple with\out outgoing mail.

Anyone have this kinda problem? Better still a solution.

Epson vs. Canon

        Thanks for the suggestions on both the Epson Stylus Color 600 and
Canon BJC-4300.  One thing that I discovered and I hope to get some
feedback on the Epson…that it actually does a inkjet test each time you
power it up??

        Man, that sucks if it does.  It may sway my decision toward the
Canon.  Interestingly enough, this Canon model also comes with a sheet
feeder scanner builtin via a cartridge add-on which is sold as part of a
the 4300 model.  Downside is that the drivers are for Win95 only.  Dang,
not even a Win3.1x driver.

        The question of inkjet cartridge availablity is pretty much a
non-issue.  Most of the stores in my local area sell both (as well
as HP, Lexmark).  But…my university computer purchasing store does only
sell HP & Epson.  Hmmm, tough call as I do most of my shopping there.  
Academic pricing rocks.  :)

Any problems using SCSI cd-roms?

Can anyone share their knowledge with SCSI CD-roms and their setups in OS/2?

In particular, the Toshiba XM-6201B 32x is priced just right, but I know
nothing in reguards to SCSI cdrom devices and OS/2. I have SCSI hard drives
and a scanner, no problems.

Anyone?

install fun

(No,  not installing the OS,  just some cdrom apps…    :-)

I’ve got this pack here which was given to us with three cdroms in it,  one
installed okay,  no problems.

The second one gets partway into the process (invoking winos2 while it’s at it)
and then complains "No wave audio devices were found" and that’s followed by
"no midi devices were found".  Is this looking for and not finding the sound
card, or what?

Then I tried the third one,  which appeared to install okay,  but then I get
"Unexpected DOS error 23".

What the heck are these all about?
