Quote:
you could boot it with mui?

more than I ;)

for installer use system/install/installer from menu

it automatically downloads a installer that at least for me worked most of the time


I did install that installer from the menu, but it fails to install the MUI4 and MUI5 archives.

I did som more experimenting on this today, and finally maneged to get MUI4 to work by installing it manually.
Finally now both Designer5 and Hollywood9 runs on Aros.

Try this method:
Get the MUI4 archive from
https://github.com/amiga-mui/muidev/releases/download/MUI-4.0-2016R3/MUI-4.0-2016R3-os3.lha
I exprienced Dopus hanging when extracting the file, so instead I extracted it using 7zip on windows.
Copy the MUI folder from this archive into AROS:
Rename the AROS:Libs/mui folder into Aros:/Libs/mui-old
Rename the AROS:Libs/muimaster.library to muimaster.library-old
Copy Aros:MUI/Libs/muimaster.library into libs:
Copy the Aros:MUI/Libs/mui folder into Libs:
Remove any old MUI: assigns from s:user-startup

Then insert this into s:user-startup:

;BEGIN MUI
if exists "SYS:MUI"
assign MUI: "SYS:MUI"
if exists MUI:Libs
assign add LIBS: MUI:Libs
endif
if exists MUI:Locale
assign add LOCALE: MUI:Locale
endif
version >nil: exec.library 39
if not warn
if exists MUI:Docs
if exists HELP:dummy ; do not remove
endif ; this entry!
assign add HELP: MUI:Docs
endif
endif
endif
;END MUI

Exchange and DefPubScreen did cause freezing, so remove these from wbstartup.
You may launch these later, they seem to start without causing freeze after the system is booted up.
I also moved AutoPubScreen from wbstartup, as it pops up some messages.

Note that a few apps will complain about to low stacksize after this, so you will need to edit those icons to increase the stacksize above 32000. This is the case for Popo - poseidon popup provider, which does give this stack warning during startup. However, I could not find the orgin of this program.

Went a bit back and forth here, so I may try to do this again from scratch later to make sure that these steps are correct.

Note that the method above is tested for the Aros Vision UAE archeive. The HDF version is a bit different, and does not have the Libs:mui folder present.

Finally adding

Forgot to mention, Designer requires TextEditor.mcc to run, which is not included in the MUI4 archive.
Just copy it from the previously renamed mui-old folder.

@AmigaMac

There are no "variants".

It's very simple really. The distros are just AROS, but configured the way the maintainers like.

AmigaSys, Amikit, ClassicWB, etc...... theyre all just AmigaOS3.x configured the way the maintainer likes.
The AROS distros are exactly the same.

Thank you so much for all your hard work on this. I can finally start Aros within FS-UAE on the Mac. So nice to see the Workbench (Wanderer) screen again.

Been desperate to get back into an Amiga like system for at least 6 years (since my A1200 died a painful horrible death)

Have you looked at the Aros One 68 version. Version 1.2 is almost 2 years old now, but it looks like 1.3 is in the works.
It uses Wanderer.

Homepage is https://sites.google.com/view/arosone
It looks like its only version 1.2 that have a download link: https://ae.amigalife.org/index.php?topic=530.0

I have just uploaded the first Scalos Version of Aros Vision for UAE. As it says, it uses scalos as desktop that is more amiga like than magellan. On the other hand less configurable in some areas. A matter of taste. Integrated software and features are the same as in magellan. You can download it here:
