John's version 1.1. I was as easy as advertised, just wonderful, and
HOWEVER, the printing is not working for me. I did clean out every
piece of SheepShaver and reinstalled it four times this morning, each
time being ever more careful to follow instructions in every single
detail. But when I would type a few words in Word Perfect and then go
to File/Print, it would bring up the Adobe PS print setup, then I
would click Save, and then I would get a file dialog, and steer to
Unix/SheepShaver print folder.
I tried selecting that two ways: either selecting that folder, or by
opening that folder and then saving. Either way, I succeeded in
actually saving a .ps file about one time in four. The rest of the
time it would pretend to be saving but then crash and nothing would
have been saved. OR it would save a postscript file but then
instantly crash SheepShaver with no warning or anything. Other times,
I would use File/Print and get an endlessly spinning colored wheel
("SPOD") and have to force quit.
My default printer is an Apple LaserWriter 1600/600 black and white
laser printer. It doesn't show up in the Chooser under System 7.5. I
tried updating to 7.6 but at the end of a fairly long install was
told that the software isn't compatible with this model of Mac.
Anyway, one or twice out of endless attempts, I actually succeeded in
saving my file as a postscript file that I was able to double click
in OS X, open in Preview and print to my printer. I NEVER had an
option to print to the printer directly.
Except for this rather important issue, I think this SheepShaver
install is brilliant and beautiful, and I would love for it to work.
But without any printing capability at all, it's not going to cut it.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any suggestions for a solution?
