I am very happy with Scalos what it is.

I currently struggle to use Filetype preferences editor and menu preferences editor from Scalos

Sometimes there are errors when it starts or the system freezes while using it. There is a list for scrolling and it seems that it freezes there. Perhaps Scalos preferences are old and something was changed in meantime. Could you look at it?

unfortunately I have currently no linux environment, just Windows

Must it be Linux 64bit?

There is no Windows-hosted 64-bit. I think easiest way to start would be to install Ubuntu 20.04 in a VM (I use VirtualBox) or even download a read-made VM image.

The last time I tried Scales on AROS Hosted on Linux x86-64 it had several issues.

It usually didn't get past opening the first window to display the icons. It would just freeze.

Scalos is a little problematic. How did you start it? From Desktop (Wanderer) or as desktop replacement? If I remember right you must have (at least) the assign scalos: on the root directory of Scalos to get it started. Perhaps you could test it?

I'm not at home at the moment.

I can test Scalos on x86-64 later today.

Hi miker, possibly to ease the basic installation on 68k follow these steps:

- Use a new AROS installation with a Nightly Build
- Rename the AROS volume to Scalos (this will avoid making assignments)
- Copy the entire contents of the Scalos folder found in "Contrib/Extras/Scalos" to the AROS root.
- From the Scalos/Tools folder, copy the LoadWB file to the SYS:/C (rename the existing one)
- Edit the startup sequence and replace Wanderer with LoadWB.

- To have a ready and functional configuration:
- Copy the contents of the folder Storage\Envarc to SYS:Env-Archive/Scalos copy also the contents of the language folder

Reboot and Scalos will be ready to be used.

The steps are the same if you need to install Scalos on AROS x86, you can also use the same configuration files, is the same version of contrib.


If instead you want to install Scalos on AROS x86 with a installer, download this version of Scalos that includes the installer,  be careful because this installation caused a crash
