Re: MINT: We don't make this easy do we?

No matter what, Mint is already v1.19 while that was based on v1.16.
However, basic installation should still work. Issue most likely a wrongly placed folder or file.

Re: PicoPSU: is it really enough for the CT60?

I do not have a CT60e but this is my experience with the CT63.

I use an full-sized small external PSU for my CT63 and it is rated at 80W output.
I also run the CTPCI with an ATI graphic card and an external 5" HDD as well.
It works very well.

So 120W is plenty.

Re: PH Gmap - Google maps, Street View, Routes, GPX & more

Yes, I am using objc_edit to draw the cursor.... and I found that I had a window redraw after that was set, and so erasing the cursor (silly me). So that's fixed.

Only issue now is the focus, I cannot see the focus on nAES but on XaAES there is a thin red perimeter on the object.

Re: Minimal multitask configuration for Hatari

Unusable for what? Main use-case for fast-forward is fast-forwarding the boring, *non-interactive* parts like TOS, application & games startups, and speed-viewing (non-interactive) demos. This is an excellent idea to skip boring stuff like a movie. :mrgreen: If you want to "see" the p...

Thanks for reporting. Yes, I saw most of the items reported and is fixable except the edit field stuff. For the edit field, I do not know how to set focus on it as it is not the standard form_do call. I need to research that. Others are simple to fix. All these are GUI related. This now ups my think...

Re: Problem with CT60e and SuperVidel

Has been years but IIRC, there was several firmware upgrade to make SV stable on CT63.
Since you have a stable SV & CT63 combo, you shold compare the firmware version.

Re: MINT: We don't make this easy do we?

If you don't need the Unix stuff then it is very simple to install Mint.
Just a folder and some files in the correct place on your HDD will do.
Once you play around with it you will laugh at how simple it is.
