Another interesting utility found on Aminet/archives.aros-exec is RMan a converter "man pages" (short for "manual pages") to many formats, an extensive online documentation used by almost all GNU/Linux distributions.


This version 3.3 is able to convert man pages to:

- ASCII      -- plain text
- TkMan      -- Tk format wrapped with commands
- Tk         -- just emit list of text-tags pairs
- Sections   -- simple plain text reformat
- Roff       -- primitive analogue of roff
- HTML       -- HTML 4.0 standard document
- XML        -- DocBook XML support by by Aaron Hawley
- MIME       -- generates MIME compliant to RFC 1563
- LaTeX      -- typical LaTeX
- LaTeX2e    -- rest same as old LaTeX
- RTF        -- Rich Text Format (RTF) could use more work
- pod        -- Perl 5 pod, plain old documentation format
- AmigaGuide -- AmigaGuide support by Chris Young


If I'm missing something, if you want you can report me other apps to be included in AROS One, any of your requests will be well received, of course I will also create the icons in AROS One style.

Another useful application found on Aminet, it is an RTF to HTML5 converter, the application is called RTF2HTML and you will find it installed in the Office folder of AROS One x86.

On archives.aros-exec I found TCPPrefs, I think it's a duplicate of Network Prefs, in any case I included it in AROS One

I've noticed that the latest version of DiskImageGUI v52.34 present on archives.aros doesn't show the "icons" menu images, so to restore DiskImageGUI on the new AROS One x86, replace "only" the executable with DiskImageGUI v52.32 present on the deadwood Nightly Build.

Small change on the WHD_Menu graphic menu so that the GUI is smaller and square in shape.

Another interesting utility present both on Aminet and archives.aros-exec, it is ViewISO a TrueType font viewer that will allow Dopus4 to display TTF Fonts with one click.

For TTF fonts I also created a Datatypes Descriptor and a custom def_TTF.info icon, the tool used in the Tooltypes is always "ViewISO" which will not show the font but will trigger the filerequester.

I add that unfortunately does not exist on AROS x86 a command for Dopus4 or Wanderer that allows you to show the BitmapFont icons

Yes thanks, now with the section dedicated to AROS One I can create thematic Thred so as not to disperse info, reports and advice from users, I also hope that some user who follows my distribution on other forums come to visit me here where he can find some more info by the developers.

Tried 4KLive live interface a small, fast software synthesizer that lets you create and record the music you produce.

Also this software has been included on AROS One x86

RunInDOSBox allows double-clicked MS-DOS programs to be automatically redirected
to run inside DOSBox, interesting and convenient application that could not miss on AROS One.


In the  README the developer of RunInDOSBox said that on AROS it could not work well, to me instead it seemed that everything works perfectly, i enclose video that shows the operation of RunInDOSBox:

AmiNote simple utility for keeping notes, it creates a save file in the same directory as the binary.

You will find this application in the Office folder, also for this application I have created AROS One style icons.

Installed on AROS One some tools for Developers, among these Murks, an integrated development environment that tilizes the same project file format of AmiDevCpp, so the exchange of data is possible.

The installation went well, tomorrow I'll try to write a few lines or compile some source code in "C", of course this is not my field but I need to see if everything works well because the GUI is quite friendly.

On this occasion I changed the graphics with Menu Icons in strictly AROS One style.

Joerg Renkert had announced it and here is the new cross-platform version of ModExplorer, i would say more and more nice and functional, I installed it and tested it successfully on AROS One.

Made a small test as a beginner programmer on Murks, a greeting from AROS One :D
