Deleting folders

Forum thread started by TedH on Mon, 2011-06-27 11:48

Whilst cleaning up my installation to minimize it (system, browser and email only needed), I ran across the folder with all the development tools in. Can I delete this?

Also, is Vision needed? Can I delete it too?

Thanks - Ted

Re: Deleting folders

Got that okay, thanks.

Re: Deleting folders

Went to BeZilla page, looks like it's no longer available and you have to use Firefox.

Anyways, thanks for all your help guys.

Re: Deleting folders

Hi Ted!

It's an optional package. Open a Terminal and type "installoptionalpackage -l" to see what's all available.
"installoptionalpackage BeZillaBrowser" installs Bezilla.

Installoptionalpackage -a BeZillaBrowser

don't forget the -a part

Re: Deleting folders

Nah, you don't need -a part anymore.

gmail works using BeZilla

The gmail.com web interface (logging into gmail.com and not using pop3 with an email-client app) only works in html mode using Web+. But in BeZilla (bon-echo 2.0.0.22pre for Haiku compiled Sept. 08, 2009) I can now use the full gmail web interface including text chat). This was not possible in Haiku R1 Alpha 2 (using either Web+ or BeZilla).

Re: Deleting folders

Yeah Web+ really doesn't like Javascript very much at all. I just had it freeze while running a test post to my blog which has a JS editor. Means I have to totally rethink what I'm going to do with my T41 now. I'll just have to be patient (not easy for me) until Haiku becomes a fully fledged OS, instead of Alpha or Beta.

Been trying to recover my hard disk for a while now, fdisk won't recognize the unit after Haiku was installed. Trying it via XP Pro interface to reset partition and format.

Re: Deleting folders

did you try Bezillabrowser ? likely your javascript is dirty, Haiku's webpositive works fin with html5 interactive canvas demos.

Re: Deleting folders

Okay thanks for that. I would have deleted the whole Vision folder and probably screwed up something.

Something else:
This forum software is weird. How do you get it to mail you when a reply is made?

I don't see the harm in deleting the whole Vision folder, if anything it's cleaner. I wonder though, if the 1,5mb you'll gain from deleting Vision is worth it. IRC is a nice way to get help fast when you don't have the time to wait for a comment in the forum/mailing list.

Go into your account profile (1st icon at top right) and look into the notifications and settings under "subscriptions".

I don't know either, the main thing is stuff that I won't use, but system processes are going whether it's on or not. I see it is run by Python or least Python has a hand in it.

Mail
I had all the right stuff check etc., but had not selected from a list which one, so I checked forum and hopefully should know when a reply is made now.

Also see the A3 has a proper email program instead of all those little windows floating around :-)
Though I'd probably just use my Gmail account - if it'll work as I've noted some people having trouble with it. Probably because Google uses heavy Javascript all over the place. I had trouble with WP on my old blog software that I wrote, so dumped the WYSIWYG and rewrote the whole thing with an HTML Editor (the idea came from this forum actually - I wrote my forum script first and then the blog) - have used WP in A3 to do an entry and it worked a lot better.

Re: Deleting folders

I doubt Python has anything to do with Vision.
WRT the webinterface for GMail: It does work, but sadly only in "simple HTML" mode. Apparently Web+ isn't yet able to cope with the ajax stuff (I think).

You can delete the vision folder, just don't delte the APPS folder. but vision is a tiny little program few hundred KB IIRC.

Re: Deleting folders

Look for Subscribe, it is hidden under your first comment.

Also I don't see why the folder for Vision itself can not be deleted.

Re: Deleting folders

Sure can. So long as you don't plan on writing/compiling software. Vision is a IRC chat program. Just delete vision, not the whole folder.
