The August RRLug meeting had 15 people attending. We met at the usual time of 6:30pm in the Rasmussen College Boardroom. There were a few new faces in the crowd tonight. As usual we had several different presentations on the agenda:
- Ubuntu PPA System – Sam Williams discussed the Ubuntu PPA ecosystem and provided some examples of how it could be used to improve your overall computer experience.
- FinalTerm – working from the PPA discussion, Sam demonstrated how to install the alpha release of FinalTerm and then preceded to demonstrate some of the new features that could ultimate make this a very unique and useful terminal program. Again, it is alpha release so there are a number of features that need work, however.
- Security 101 – We discussed some additional security tools and concerns that would make using Linux a bit safer. Hopefully, next month there will be a historic video presented to further illustrate some of these principles.
- Current News – Towards the end of the meeting we discussed some of the more interesting Linux/FOSS news items from the past month.
It was a great meeting and everyone seemed to leave with just a little bit more information under their belts! Look forward to seeing you all at the September meeting!
