go to http://minivmac.sourceforge.net/doc/start.html
there you can find:  ImportFl  binUnpk ExportFl
drag the .dsk files into the emulator and run the import program then drag you binfile on it
select a location and then open BinUnpk and open the bin file you placed on the emulator
now select the destination and thats all unpacked

hope this was where you were looking for

extract the zip file and drag the .dsk into the emulator to mount it,
i mean you have to use the the emulator on you mac to get files on it.

So I have to install mini vMac on my computer to move files to the mini vMac on my calculator? I'm still not too sure how to open other disk files on my calculator's vMac.

on your calculator you can only open one image, so the idea is to put all the files you want on one single image on you computer with the computer version of vMac so you can use that image on your calc

From wikipedia: AppleScript was released in October 1993 as part of System 7.1.1
I suppose if you have system 7.1.1 running, yes. (the one included is 7.0.1).

Didn't notice that. I'm just using the included OS (which is apparently 7.0.1).

Can you please make it so you can scroll to see all of the screen?

I think the last operating system suported by mini vMac is Mac OS System 7.5.5, but will require a tricky installation as prescribed here:
http://minhdanh2002.blogspot.pt/2008/11/system-755-on-mini-vmac.html
 :P

Howeve is very funny to use the Mac OS on a calculator, this means I can use Photoshop  >:D, or even Mathematica!  O.O
(Up to version 3, even it's too old, is even more powerfull than current Maxima 5.29.1 O.O).

So far, the only way to start Maxima on Nspire is to boot Linux and start the console version of Maxima.  :(

I think it would actually run. The old versions, anyway.

Yeah, that's it, I'm trying installing System 7.5.5 in minivmac using the tutorial Nosferatu posted.

Also note for Linux users, you can mount hfs images using the usual mount command as root.

EDIT: For decompressing the .smi.bin you might want to download Stuffit for Linux just here.

I'm trying to run this on my TI-Nspire (clickpad version) and it seems to crash shortly after booting (holding down Ctrl to get to the Control Mode doesn't even work). Am I doing something wrong? I'm using the ROM and disk image included in the download, and haven't changed anything.
