BASE: Why Would You Use a Command Line Instead of a GUI

by Steve Stegmann

Normally Abstract/Background/Details/History/Outline/Summary/Walk-through will be listed when available.

This session might show factors common with both personal and enterprise computing.

ANNUAL MEETING and Elections:

As required by our By-Laws, should be brief.

MAIN: Help Getting Help (Part Two)

by Stan Reichardt

This will be a continuation of last month's presentation, with emphasis on finding help. It is a survey of finding help, within Linux Operating System Distributions and outside resources, using the Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Intended for Unix/Linux newcomers, the true beginners.

Some useful examples, certainly not everything.

We had previously (in Part One) explored help available within the command line terminal, which then leads us into the richly abundant GUI help resources of the LinuxMint MATE Desktop Environment.

SLUUG Sponsored meetings in the STL Metro Area

Monthly Meetings

We start the general meeting at 6:30 PM with our BASE session (usually focused on personal computing); which may include either amazing graphical packages, blinking lights, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, displays of newly discovered web sites, major resolution of long standing anomalies, quantum discoveries, superb tutorials, or shifts in both time and space.

Sometime after 7:00 PM we get to a quick welcome, introductions, announcements, current events of interest, and a general CALL FOR HELP (Questions and Answers) segment.

Sometime after 7:30 PM, we may take a short break before our MAIN topic (usually focused on enterprise computing),

All of our meetings are free and open to the public. There is no individual membership fee.
