deadwood on "Aros Scalos" The Scalos preferences work fine, see screenshot, the problem is that there is a corruption on a Scalos Preferences file that prevents starting almost all Scalos preferences.

There remains the serious problem of slow icons when opening a folder, also DualPNG Icons are not supported, graphical corruptions occur when using them, also the automatic icon "from the menu" layout seems not to work, I need to check if there is an option in Scalos Prefs.

If you want I can send you an ISO of AROS One Scalos x86

@deadwood

I cannot remember the problem but I would try. Unfortunately I have updated my old installation and not make a backup. Is there a old version I could download?

@AMIGASYSTEM

I made a not of functionality issues, here.

I will look into them once I switch to porting Scalos.

Thanks, today I delved into some tests, I noticed that on the Scalos Workbench there is no menu, Wander/Scalos for the various functions on Icons and Files and there is no possibility of the automatic arrangement of icons even in the prefs (maybe I don't find them) also on some icons the text is not visible, to make it visible you have to move the icon.


From the Scalos Preferences I enabled the Buttons and Tabs and they work fine , only flaw the background of the two Tabs too big and dark gray "not editable".

At the end with the transparencies I managed to improve the aesthetics of the two Tabs (see screenshot), they work well but when you change from Icons to Detail, Name, Size, Date etc... in the Window there remain shadows of the icons (graphical artifacts), and some icons (DualPNG) are cut off, see screenshot

you can simply copy the pref files from 68k, they work 1:1 on X86. I installed Scalos on amigaforever and changed menu and copied files and it worked

Yes I know, but X86 users should use the tools distributed with x86, the Scalos 68k version might be different and generate other "untreatable" anomalies

No I mean "real Scalos" on Amiga 3.5/3.9 or similar

you can use pref files between all platforms (Scalos on Amiga, Scalos on Aros 68k, Scalos on X86) without any problems. At least I have not seen any up to now

Your link is the same as the one I used taken from the Scalos official site, Scalos  "version Beta".

The configuration files are similar, but AROS x86 has a few more files and some fole are bigger (contain more data)

So the result doesn't change (see screenshot), the mentioned problems on DualPNG Icons are also there in 68k settings, the problem is not on the configuration files but on Scalos which needs to be improved and speeded up and improve the icon.library integrated in Scalos

Do you have tested it with icon.library from PeterK? On 68k I always use it. Perhaps it solves the problem at least on 68k
