ODF file formats are planned. This was really more of a bug fix / minor update release. So the best way for me to get it tested was to allow it to be included as a demo/ prerelease in Icaros.

Icaros Desktop




Icaros Desktop 2.2 Nuova release della pił famosa Distro AROS by Paolone

Icaros Desktop 2.2: Download

Don't forget to donate or become our patron!


After so many months of development, Icaros Desktop 2.2 is now available for download. The new release expands the ability to run the distribution in hosted mode (introduced with last Xmas Preview), allowing Linux and Windows users to run their applications - with no limitations - from the AROS shell and graphic interface. The new "HostBridge" technology can also open files and even set Linux/Windows programs as default tools for AROS projects. But that's not the only news about Icaros 2.2. The most popular AROS distribution for PC has now a brand new look, with new decoration theme, new desktop and new Magellan toolbars; it also includes new programs (like Slarti and ZunePaint), and brings all included software to the latest release

Options in GRUB menus to disable certain components for debugging:

Disable ATA: "ATA=off"
ATA safe mode: "ATA=nodma,32bit"
Disable AHCI/SATA: remove ahci.device line with Ctrl-K.
Disable USB: remove pciusb.device and poseidon.library lines with Ctrl-K.
Disable native graphics: "nomonitors"

Disabling audio can't be done in GRUB, but disabling the startup sound in Icaros prefs should prevent it from starting (unless you plug USB device in or out, which may play a sound).

OK, I'll give it another go. Last time I played with Icaros I was not able to utilitize AMIBRIDGE very effectively. We'll see how this goes...
