May 7th 2018 PLUG Meeting: KDE Plasma desktop using Neptune OS (redux)

Jason Wallwork will be presenting the KDE Plasma desktop using Neptune OS which is a showcase for the latest version of KDE built on top of Debian Wheezy. The vast majority of our presentations have featured distros that use Gnome, Cinnamon, LXDE or XFCE as their base desktops and we haven't spent much time talking about KDE. Jason will be hoping to remedy this gap with information on how Plasma is different and why you might want to use it with some focus on particular KDE applications for email, file management, contacts, and more.

Time: 7 pm
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.

At this meeting we will also be taking membership renewals. 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 cash or cheque (made out to PLUG). Membership also gives you the opportunity to review Linux-related or other computer books, and bragging rights.

CANCELLED -- April 16th 2018 PLUG Meeting: KDE Plasma desktop using KDE Neon

In consideration to the weather and the fact that we all want to live we will be cancelling this months meeting. I cannot see this getting any better, in the event that the temp drops below zero it would only get worse.
