For those new to Linux, John has a talk titled: “Surprises after setup”
Following that, John has a second talk titled “BASIC: A retrospective and appreciation for Linux in 2021,
After John, Scott will do a talk titled “Providing a better video call experience”
This month’s code: LinuxOttawa20210506
The meeting URL will now be a fixed URL, https://six.linux-ottawa.org and should be up for connection by 18:30 on meeting nights and will vanish shortly after the meeting has concluded. You will be joining as anonymous guests, so you will not have a username or password. If it asks if you are the host for a username and password, it has not been started yet.
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, which no longer appears to obscure the rest of the session (maybe on small monitors?) 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.
