Floppy disk BestWB 1.3

BestWB Update from v1.2 to v1.3
-------------------------------

Please make a complete system backup before updating!


Requirements:

A clean installation of AmigaOS 3.1.4(.1) + BestWB v1.2
About 2 MB of free harddisk space.


Changes in this v1.3 update
---------------------------

New Features:

.TitleShadow is a program that enables title bar font customization.
.AHI enables third party audio hardware under a unified interface.

Updates:

.IconLib46 46.4.513 -> 46.4.518
.ToolsMenu 1.9.1 -> 1.10.2
.TSGUI -> 2.6b21
.WBDock 2.13 -> 2.14

Bugfixes:

-Cleaned up the installation script.
-Improved some documentation.
-Removed DOSPrefs as its operation is both buggy and quite hackish.

Tweaks:

-MMULibs is now optional when going full install (Not in the Update).
-FullPalette can be easily toggled on or off quite easily.

Comments:

- To temporarily disable AHI, just move the AUDIO mountlist from
Devs/DOSDrivers to Storage.
- To both activate and deactivate TiTleShadow and Fullpalette use the
Prefs/WBStartupPrefs program.
- Donations accepted at the email below.

Installed it on a freshly installed A4000 with 3.1.4 ROMS and 3.1.4.1 OS. Looks great!! I also installed your Dopus version. However I run into a small problem. I think there is something wrong with the icon settings. When I create a drawer in DOpus I get the error:
An error occured adding an icon to '<dir name>' DOS error code 205 - object not found.

I probably have to config that somewhere in DOpus, I think I found where, but no idea which icon file to choose.

Is that DOpus 4 ?

On my system it looks into Sys:icons
for example: Sys:icons/drawer.info
or others like: Sys:icons/ascii.info

Edit: It's set in the DOpus 4 configuration under "System/Icons".

Maybe I should better change the icon locations from "Sys:icons" to "ENVARC:Sys" and use the normal DefIcons there like def_drawer.info, def_project.info etc. But my DOpus4 configuration is from 1993 and I was always too lazy to change it.

Read the DOpus 4 Manual guide file from one of the full versions like 4.16.

OK, I'll figure it out, thanks a lot!! There is no Sys:icons on my system. I'm running 3.1.4.1 + BestWB with Glowicons.

In Sys:Prefs/Env-Archive/BestWB/BestWBversion

or in Env:BestWB/BestWBversion

or in a shell:

GetEnv BestWB/BestWBversion
