Meeting Announcement

Thursday September 3, 2020

Venue

Linux-Ottawa Jitsi Server starting right after the AGM

As this server is being built about an hour prior to the meeting to keep the operating cost down, the URL will be announced on IRC after the AGM is completed..

Meeting Agenda

When: Thursday, September 3, 2020
Time: 19:00
Where: jitsi video conference (details to follow)

As per our new normal, we will utilize jitsi for our meeting.

This month we have a talk from John Nash on Linux Photo Management.

John will suggest a number of tools for managing photo collections. Photo collections have different characteristics and purposes, so different tools may be needed. Unfortunately, there are many glitches or omissions, or simply unsuitable interfaces. The presenter has even developed one tool himself to ease the task of commenting and renaming photos.

Discussion and questions welcome to expand and advance the understanding.

Meeting Details:

The meeting URL and code words will be emailed around 18:30 so there is a potential for some social time prior to getting started.

Rules/Procedures/Common-Sense:

Similar to last time, your output video and audio will be disabled when you join. In order to make sure the experience is a reasonable one for all involved, the presenter will share their screen-window-whatever they are comfortable with and you will see it quite clearly. Rather than unmute, pressing your space bar is supposed to unmute your microphone while pressed, so you can try that to ask questions. There is also the chat window, but when it is active it obscures part of the screen. Feel free to post questions and as opportunity presents itself and the presenter notices, they will get answered. After the presentation is completed, feel free to unmute and have a normal voice/video Q&A.

Should you use Linux?

Linux or, more properly GNU/Linux, is the operating system built on the kernel derived from the seminal work of Linus Torvalds combined with developments of Unix tools from Gnu, or the Free Software Foundation. It is a family of distributions, that is, implementations of this combination of software, with various combinations of components such as window managers, desktop layouts, packaging tools and application sets. Or see What is Linux?

As this website is for Linux-Ottawa, otherwise known as the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group, we strongly support the use and promotion of Linux. However, that does not mean it is for everyone, or for every purpose. Some of the reasons to use Linux are discussed on that link, along with some situations where Linux may not be the best choice.

Linux-Ottawa Mailing List

In order to be placed on the list, you must send an email to: listname+subscribe@linux-ottawa.org. A handy link appears in this paragraph. Once you have done that, you will be sent an email (please allow sufficient time for it to arrive and check spam filters. Given modern greylisting and other filters, this may take more than 10 minutes) asking you to confirm your desire to be added to the list. Click the link and you will be sent to a web page where you have to confirm that you wish to be added to the list. Subscribe

Unsubscribing from the list is just as easy. Send an email to listname+unsubscribe@linux-ottawa.org. For your convenience, an unsubscribe link follows: Unsubscribe

The list archive is also available

Note: This a relatively low volume list.

OCLUG Meeting History

This is a conversion of the pages from the old site. There may be a few oddities in the pages, a few of which look like messed up URLs. These will get cleaned up over time, however as the links all seem to work, they are lower priority.
