Re: SheepShaver for WP
- Lawrence, re (2), what I called the Unix or transfer folder is the OSX folder you designate in your SS GUI or SS Preferences as the Unix root. I use a newly created subfolder of my home folder in OSX. Regardless of how it is named in OSX, in SS it will appear on the desktop as a disk named Unix. Re (1), what SS seems to make invisible are folders, typically folders not created in OSX (i.e. not created in Unix). Sometimes I have found files to disappear too. It's not fully consistent. Kilometre seems to fix such disappearances. What I have done to be on the safe side is to copy files and folders for SS into the Unix folder rather than move them there, that way I keep a backup in case the moved copy disappears. Tom

its confirmation that WP runs just fine on the newest Macs.
Of additional interest is the fact that OSX, at this point in its development,
still does not match in functionality OS 7.5-9.2 with third-party extensions
and control panels, carefully chosen from the vast number available.

SS is under active development and this issue is getting the most attention.

I can hardly wait for the next generation of Intel chips, at which point
WordPerfect will run faster than it ever has.

when you use the "chooser", can you see the printer? and is appletalk
Worst case you could print to a file (in OS9) and print this
(e)ps-file in OS X
Also, have you ever been able to print using this print from anything in Classic?

- Sorry for the naive question, but how do you install
Kilometre to run in OS 9.
I am finding that if I move files from OS X onto the
Sheepshaver Volume that they don't show up in OS 9.
- Lawrence, Kilometre only works in OSX. I use it as needed on the Unix
(transfer) folder, or on the SheepShaver volume when this is mounted in
OSX rather than in SS (its name has to end in .dmg for it to be
mountable in OSX, though SS does not require such a file extension).
Also, as John R. has cautioned, never open the SS volume in both SS and
OSX at the same time.
There are several OS 8-9 utilities for making invisible files visible.
I long used the freeware Invisible File Copier
(http://www.tucows.com/preview/207055). There was also a freeware
contextual menu plugin called Change Visibility from Alsoft (the makers
of Disk Warrior), though I cannot find it on their website today. (I
just emailed them about this.)
Hope some of this helps. Tom

- Yes, this does help, but it raises two other questions:
1) What files precisely will I not be able to see because of
the limitations of Unix?
2) When you refer to a Unix transfer folder, to what are you
