Upcoming PLUG Meeting on Monday, Jan 20, 2020: DeX and Lubuntu

Date: Monday, January 20, 2020 @ 7 PM

Topic: Run a computer from your phone/tablet using Samsung DeX

What ever happened to Ubuntu’s grand plan for convergence of the various devices that run Linux and Android?

Their plan didn’t pan out, but Samsung came up with the next best thing called DeX, stands for Desktop Experience. DeX allows you to run a desktop version of Android on your monitor, PC or Mac, and it is capable enough to be considered a substitute for a desktop computer if your needs aren’t too high-end.

At our next meeting, Mike Fox will be demonstrating DeX running from his S9 phone, showing how to set it up and what it can do.

Topic: Lubuntu 19.10

Jason Wallwork will also be demonstrating Lubuntu 19.10, a lighter Ubuntu spin for very old computers, like his! It's speedy and has everything you'd expect from a distro with all the programs you need ready to go. Jason will show you what is different about the desktop environment and how it compares to other DEs along with some of the programs that Lubuntu comes with.

Location: Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
The 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.

We hope you can all make it. We know it's cold but please come out if you can. PLUG is only as good as its members!

December PLUG meeting: Monday, December 16, 2019

Topic: Nextcloud OR Linux Roundtable

Date: Monday, December 16, 2019 - 7 PM

Location: Applewood Manor
1500 Lansdowne Street West, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.
The 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.

We have this Monday booked but we didn't mention it because we weren't sure the projector would be ready and still aren't but we have a backup plan.

If by the meeting, the projector is ready, we will do NextCloud as promised. If not, we will do something that Harry suggested instead. Let's call it a Linux roundtable.

Please bring your device(s). We'll sit in the back area at some tables and have an informal discussion of what we're doing with them, hopefully, related to Linux or Android. It'll be like a MUG but with some prompted questions.

We can look at various distros, applications, tips, our favourite browser, office suite or new pre-Christmas purchases. The idea is that each person learns something by seeing how others use their devices. And don't feel you have to limit this discussion to laptops. You can bring your Android devices - tablets or phones and show your favourite apps. It should be fun and educational.

Either way, there will be coffee, some snacks and egg nog during the meeting. Wine or beer is up to you.
