September 2017 PLUG Meeting: Linux Mint 18.2: THIS MONDAY!


Linux Mint 18.2

Linux Mint 18.2 will be presented by Jason Wallwork. Suitable for beginners, he will show you how to get Linux Mint and install it on your computer, using a USB thumbdrive. But before doing that, he will talk about what makes Linux Mint different, the different versions and how to choose one for your computer, and demonstrate the install. Finally, he will show it in action and the new features in this point release. This would be a great presentation for you advanced users to bring a friend that isn't sure about Linux but would like to try it. Hope to see you there!

Date: Monday, September 4, 2017 - 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.

The raffle has been discontinued. However, you can still get a free book of your choice from O'Reilly by writing a short review afterward. Use the contact form if you'd like to do that.

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.

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.

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.
