Welcome back, CPLUGers! Join us for our first general meeting of the school year on Monday, October 12 at 6pm in 14-247!

We’ll go over some history of the club, what we do, what we plan to do, and get feedback from you on what you would like to see.

Come with your questions and ideas about anything Linux-related.

If you can’t make it, be sure to stay tuned for future events. Our weekly Linux help sessions continue to be held on Fridays at 1pm in 20-124.

  • …And much more.

Even if you don’t have an issue, come check us out, just to hang out and talk about Linux.

Here’s our schedule for what officer will be helping in what week. That officer’s distro of choice is also included in case you have a problem specific to one of those distros.

Come have CPLUG help install Linux on your computer! We can also troubleshoot any Linux-related problems you have, or you can just show up to hang out.

We will dual boot your machine with Linux Mint (an excellent Linux distribution) so you won’t lose your current OS. We’ll have Linux Mint 17 and Ubuntu 14.04 flash drives on hand, and we can help you install another distribution if you bring your own installation media.
