Re: QL Serial --> USB

Hi, Since the Retro-Printer is a hat + software for a RPi and can connect to a USB printer can it also connect to a remote printer via Wifi as the RPi can? Cheers Of course - it just uses CUPS to do the printing :) Connecting a remote printer to CUPS is not as simple as a USB printer, but it works.

Re: Identify a QL related object - WRONG ANSWERS ONLY

Jammed expansion card extraction tool. I need one to get my Gold Card out of my QL #2, it's that snug a fit I struggle to remove the Gold Card. I thought it was the opposite - to help line up the expansion cards when slotting them into the QL - always a problem when trying to insert a Trump Card....

Re: Let us chat about Desktop Publishing on the QL

OK my views on Mice. I am a programmer by nature and a mouse gets in the way to some extent. None of the desktop publishing software for the QL was mouse driven (except for one - Publishing OffICE by Eidersoft which used the iCE mouse). The lack of any real graphical desktop system on the QL probabl...

Re: Devpac QL

So far as I know, HiSoft still exist - http://www.hisoft.co.uk/

It is therefore up to them whether to allow the software to be made freeware.

Please feel free to approach them Dave (or anyone else) - I have stopped tracking down the copyright holders as it was a thankless task

Re: QPC2 freeze on Win 10 laptop going to sleep

Also - do you have QPC2 running with a screensaver in it or similar? I wonder if it is that QPC2 cannot read the mouse / keyboard, or does the image actually freeze if it was doing somethingg graphically at the time?
