September 2016 PLUG Meeting

This coming Monday...

Fedora 24

Ever searching for that perfect distro to work with his mostly-Mac hardware, Mike Fox will be reviewing the latest Fedora release (Fedora 24) and its implementation of Gnome 3.20. Mike will cover some of the new technologies in the latest release (Gnome Software app, DNF package manager, and Flatpak for cross-distro packaging of applications), and how to easily install codecs and other popular software using a GUI program called Fedy. Finally, Mike will discuss some of the ways the Gnome 3 desktop can be customized.

Until/unless we can find another book supplier to give us books, the raffle will be discontinued. Of course, you can still get a free book of your choice by offering to do a short review of it. Use the contact form if you'd like to do that.

Date: Monday, September 5, 2016 - 7 PM

Membership, although voluntary, is encouraged. Membership fees cover our room rental costs and any surplus is used to treat members during the Christmas Pizza party. A membership is only $25 a year, a fee that hasn't changed since 2000. You can pay via cheque, cash or Paypal. Membership also gives you the opportunity to review Linux-related or other computer books, and bragging rights.

We have a Linux magazine swap at each meeting. Bring in recent Linux magazines (within the last year) to trade with or give to other members.

Location: Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
Parking is on the east (right) side. Entrance is at the front of the building. From the front, go down the hall to the right, and enter the last door on the left.

After the meeting, everyone is invited to Tim Horton's on MONAGHAN ROAD (just a stone's throw north of Lansdowne). They have free wireless along with their treats and refreshments.

Hope you can make it!

Note: PLUG MUG nights continue every MONDAY night except the week of a regular PLUG meeting (as long as there is interest). Please check the forums for the weekly sign-up list.
