Is there anyone in the southern Utah area? I live in St. George and would love to be able to talk to someone locally here... It is always nice to be able to have someone near by when you need something. I am happy to help others with my limited Linux knowledge and always happy to learn. Unfortunately as a married full time student with 2 kids I have $0 for travel so I was hoping to find someone here in St. George... I attend DSC so it would be easy to meet up once in a while and talk... Also I use a laptop so my problems travel with me easily...

Hmmm. I am unaware of anybody from the southern end of the state. I know there is the southern Utah LUG down there. Not sure how many of them are using or interested in Ubuntu. Maybe hit the mailing lists, and find out.

BTW- come to #ubuntu-utah, and hang out with us there in our IRC channel. We can discuss it, and see what options there are to get the southern end of the state involved.

I should have come here earlier greywolf79. I'm a IT/Developer professional here in Sunny St. George. I have been a faithful ubuntu user for the past 6-8 months (I don't remember....before that I was a Debian freak and confident Linux would never produce a decent desktop solution...Ubuntu proved me wrong...I can still be a Debian freak too.) I boot Ubuntu at both work and home and absolutely love it.

I don't know of any clubs here (I've never attended any meetings anyway). I know of the Southern Utah Unix Users Group for http://www.su3g.org/ (which seems somewhat active.) Ubuntu shoudl fit in there somewhere. If you wanna start a Ubuntu club or Chapter, let me know.

Gadren,

Second saturday of each month, 6:00pm at this location

We usually stand around and BS in the parking lot before. Hope to see you there, as for anything more formal. I really don't think there is anything more needed other than attendence (I think for a contributing member there is quite a bit more).

Hey. Just found out about the local group. Is the meeting this month on the 8th? Won't be able to attend many after that due to work, but would like to at least check one out. Also, what server is the IRC channel on?

Detox06 - The September meet will be the Utah Open Source Conference (http://www.utosc.org), we'll then have a meet-n-greet BBQ and the 22nd. In October we'll have a presentation on ssh on the 6th and an Ubuntu 7.10 release party on the 20th.

Thank you. I will hopefully be at the conference on Saturday. I don't know if I'll make the bbq but probably not. I work nights, so I probably won't make most meeting.

Hello Fellow So. Utahian,

I live in St. George as well. Just started Ubuntu Studio on my new multimedia machine and having fun putting it all together.

My time is limited but if you want to post back and forth I will do what I can to further the cause of ubuntu here in St. George.

Best wishes,

Hi papajohn, I am in the St George area as well. There is a group meeting down here and we would love to have you.

The Souther Utah Unix Users Group is local and will be having a meeting September 27th, 2007 at 7:00 PM in The Dixie College Udvar-Hazy School of Business room 149. I am in the process of updating the website: su3g.org (http://www.su3g.org) and the forum has a post (http://www.su3g.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=145) about it.

I will monitor this thread if you have more questions.

Long time no talkie.
So are we meeting this Saturday for our regular Ubuntu meeting at our regular location or is something else going on?

Just checking cause I have a few people who want to join us possibly.

Thanks!

Ya just yesterday, Zelut was remarking in IRC that our forums are kinda pathetic. Most of us this weekend will be at the UTOS MDRP

http://www.utosf.org/2007/11/05/mdrp-multi-distro-release-party-this-saturday-1-5pm/

Come join us.

I would like to come to the meeting on Dec 8th, I got two laptops, should I bring them both?

Zelut

If you need any help with them feel free to bring them both. I haven't decided on a topic for the next meeting, but we're planning on it either way. Go ahead and bring anything you might need help with, need upgraded or need troubleshooting help on..

Right now the biggest thing that I need help with is my iPhone, unlocking it from the 1.1.2 update or just getting it back to the orginal firmware...

I too live in Southern Utah. Hurricane to be specific. Perhaps all the S. Utah Ubuntu users should add each other to their friends lists on the forums. That or maybe the Utah Team forum should have a board for Southern Utah?

There are so few of us down here, but it might be worth it. You can find me in IRC at irc.freenode.net in #ubuntu-us-ut #utos or #su3g (which is specifically for the Southern Utah group). I haven't had time to plan another specific meeting yet but I hope to have one before the end of the semester.

Freshly migrating to Ubuntu Studio 8.04 from the Company that bill left to the suited monkeys farm... Still have yet to install Studio as it has not yet come in the mail, but will by the time te next meeting rolls around.

Which, By the Way, I joined the List at http://utah.ubuntu-us.org/ as NinjaBuntu... So I'm also really looking forward to UTOSC 2008, It will be the first time for me.

So, Ok you meet at the UofU Every Second Saturday. I pretty sure I'm gonna have a Hardware Compatibility issue with my Wireless-G card Not that I really care, it a lame card anyways. I've been trying to find a list by component type Compatibility site. i found one but Firefox decided to take my bookmarks and dump em for some reason.

Ok, Well hi y'all hope to see you this next meeting...

Does anyone know if there are still meetings for a Linux group in Southern Utah? Thanks.

I have been having trouble finding interest outside the college among people that can actually attend. I am willing to organize a meeting sometime in the next few months.
