General Meeting on Wednesday - 11 May 2016
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session; which may include either simple tutorials, displays of newly discovered web sites, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, amazing graphical packages, major resolution of long standing anomalies, blinking lights, or quantum shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event.

Basic Session

The basics portion will be Shared Remote Gnucash by David Forrest

Gnucash is just the application that is shared. So, this will prove to be simply way more useful than complicated. The interesting and useful information is all about the sharing.

David Forrest is interesting and informative.

Main Event

The main presentation will be Benefits of Chromebooks by Don Ellis and Andrew Latham

An Overview of the ChromeOS ecosystem

This presentation will emphasize the many benefits of using ChromeBooks. We will encompass use of the Google Chrome OS, which is used on ChromeBooks, ChromeBox, and the Chromebase Desktop.

There may be additional coverage and demonstration of ChromeBox, and the Chromebase Desktop. We will cover use cases for the Chrome OS for various tasks, and also may demonstrate using it on your own laptop.

Coverage may include:

  • Switching to and from Developer Mode,
  • Demonstrating features of a Chromebook,
  • Demonstrating features of a Chromebox,
  • Demonstrating features of a Chromebase Desktop,
  • Demonstrating (possibly) a dual booting set up,
  • Demonstrating that you can do whatever you want and restore to a supported configuration:
    1. Recovering from Chrome/Ubuntu install,
    2. Restoring to default configuration.
