Re: Demo grid access from inferno?

Running the script gives you access to everything that doesn't require 
some kind of authentication (can't use: Cpu Pool, chat, spree).

remote display on Mac OS X server has bogus colors

I just tried to run the latest version of Inferno, hosted on
my FreeBSD box, and with $DISPLAY pointed to a remote X server
running on Mac OS X (the one distributed by Apple for OS X 10.3).
The colors on the Mac's X server were all wrong.

Has anyone else seen this?  Is there an easy fix?

Re: remote display on Mac OS X server has bogus colors


I noticed that to. It also does the same trick if you xterm to a OS X box
from a non OS X box and run inferno on the OS X box.
Going from OS X to OS X seems fine though.
Setting the colours to thousands in the X11 preferences seems to sort out
the colour map but leads to other strange behaviour.

Inferno / Limbo

Hi All,

I am just wondering how the future holds for inferno and Limbo.  It's worth one time to learn another OS and
Language.

Thanks

Re: Inferno / Limbo

Depends on what you mean by learning, but probably yes.

You are welcome to read and learn a lot! You are probably going to
experience things you'd never heard of before. Things like that and
knowing that other systems are only going to pick up ideas in a few years
time makes you feel like you travelled in time.

You can have most of the functionality of any common desktop environment,
but be prepared to accept things the way they are, since inferno's main
strength lies elsewhere.

Hint: until now and at the moment there was and is a very good overhead of
inferno. There are reasons why you can't have your favorite web-browser,
irc client etc.

postscript fonts

I was trying to read some of the inferno docs using ghostscript/ghostview
under windows, and some of the ps files are barely readable - words
overlapping, etc. It looks like gsview is using some default courier font
rather than the document-specified one. Is there any way to add the
plan9/inferno postscript fonts to a windows ghost[script|view]
installation?

Some of the .ps wants Lucida font, and default substitution with Courier
looks weird. I was succeed with adding following line at the end of Fontmap:

/LucidaSansUnicode00            /NimbusSanL-Regu ;

Re: postscript fonts

i'll try to remember to put the necessary fonts (or characters from them)
into the .ps files next time i build them.  i'm suspect i probably didn't notice
because they were already installed on the machine i use to check things,
and i didn't think of that one.

Re: console based editor?

i secretly use ed for little things, but that's force of ancient habit.

are you using Windows or Linux/FreeBSD/Unix on the laptop?
i think control-[right button] is equivalent to middle-button on Windows Inferno,
so you can get all through buttons on Windows.
with X11 it seems to be up to the X implementation, but i suspect
it also offers some way of emulating a 3-button mouse with 2-buttons.
chording is admittedly a little tricky then.
