Andrew Thompson opened the KLUG meeting tonight with introductions and a Linux question for the day! The question was, "What would you like to do more of with Linux?" The answers ranged from "Everything!" to gaining more GIMP experience!
Bill Kennard is working on a mobile audio jukebox system. Cajun is an Open Source program that allows you to turn any computer into a massive audio jukebox for your car or home. He is in the process of building an infra-red remote control. LIRC is a package that allows you to decode and send infra-red signals of many (but not all) commonly used remote controls. Dirk Bartley, Robert G. Brown, and Andrew discussed the project with Bill. Do programmers suspect hardware failure before code problems? Sometimes... smirk! http://www.cajun.nu/ http://www.lirc.org/
This meeting is intended for those who are just curious about Linux and Open Source software, who need some help getting started, or want some extra eyes to look at your advanced problem. You can also bring in your PC or laptop to get help installing Linux on it, at no charge. Try a Linux distribution that boots from a CD and requires no change to your system's current software. Make sure you arrange to get the software you want ahead of time. Check out http://kalamazoolinux.org/cd/ for more information.
If you would like to install Linux on a system, or you need help with Linux, please fill out a Help Request so that someone can research your hardware/software, etc... http://kalamazoolinux.org/meetings/installmeeting.php Installations and assistance are done by appointment ONLY. You must fill out the appropriate form at least one week prior to the meeting. (11 Linux Enthusiasts Attending)
