Good afternoon all,

I replaced Mozilla on my VMS box with Seamonkey 1.1.12 and Java150 and now I can no longer print. If I humbly ask Seamonkey to print it goes through the motions and the
following error is logged:

DCL-W-IVQUAL, unrecognized qualifier - check validity, spelling, and placement
\TMP\

Now that might be helpful if I saw the command that inspired such a response.

Meanwhile, the same log periodically says this:

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /sys$common/cswb/plugins/libjava
plugin_oji.so [OpenVMS status is decimal 98962

and decimel 98962 translates to:

richardlo $ write sys$output f$message(98962)
%RMS-E-FNF, file not found

again that would be more useful if I knew what file we were talking about.

Any ideas how to start diagnosing this little caprice?

It is using a command with the first argument of the form

/tmp/xxxxxxxx.tmp

which it creates in your sys$scratch: (I think), which is usually the same as sys$login:

I defined the print command in

[._MOZILLA.DEFAULT.your_salt_folder]PREFS.JS

by adding the line

user_pref("print.printer_PostScript/default.print_command", "ghostprint "smiley;

wher I have the symbol ghostprint defied in my LOGIN.COM to be

$ GHOSTPRINT:==$DISK$USERS:[wherever]GSPRINT.EXE

and the GSPRINT.EXE is a simple C program I wrote which strips off the /tmp/ and passes the arguments to a file called GSPRINT.COM which enables me to print on an HP deskjet printer, and looks similar to this

$ SET VER
$ IF F$SEARCH(P1).EQS.""
$ THEN
$ WRITE SYS$OUTPUT "Can't find ''P1' - please specify the correct file name"
$ EXIT
$ ELSE
$ file_spec = "''P1'"
$ file_type = F$PARSE(file_spec,,,"TYPE"smiley
$ ENDIF
$ IF file_type.EQS.".PS" .OR. file_type.EQS."." .OR. file_type.EQS.".TMP"
$ THEN
$! Use GhostScript to generate file from PostScript
$! Use colour deskjet driver
$ gs "-sDEVICE=cdj550" "-dBitsPerPixel=16" "-dShingling=0" "-dDepletion=1" "-
$ P1 = "SYS$SCRATCH:''file_name'.dj"
$ PRINT/DELETE/PASSALL 'P1'
$ ENDIF
$ EXIT

You may want to add some lines to tidy up the temporary files which result.

Hope this helps.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
