TOPIC
 
Linux Newbie 101: Finding and Installing Free Software

Kevin W.

[geek:1]

Join LUGOD this month on November 20th for a special presentation by our 'sys' officer Kevin, entitled Linux Newbie 101. As a relatively new Linux user, Kevin will share his experiences installing Linux for the first time, including how to find and install free, Open-Source software alternatives to popular non-free software packages. He'll touch on a simple introduction to installing software with different package managers, as well as a few beginner tips and tricks for using the command line.

 
 

A flyer may be available, if you'd like to print it and post it!
