I would like to start a support group in Albuquerque, through emails and IM sessions, using GAIM, ; my email address is wkpickett0154@comcast.net. Your subject when emailing would be Ubuntu NM Support Group.:)

***4-16-07 UPDATE The first 'issue' went out to those who emailed me as requested, and it looks good. Mr Thomas will keep us informed on the "Full Circle magazine", so that's a plus. Anyone who wants to tell their story as to how you came to Ubuntu and your computer involvement, email me as stated above. AND** Anyone wanting a separate IRC for this area and group- if you know how- I do not-- set it up and let the rest of us know what and where, ok! Thanks everyone.

I eagerly await 0704 Fiesty with the Linspire CNR- wow Canonical is going gangbusters- watch out MS... hee haw...
Ubuntu shall overcome...

This sounds great! I am a Linux noob, but I believe the best way to learn is through trail and interaction. I am interested in participating in anything that can further my understanding of Ubuntu in particular, and Linux in general, as well as helping other folks in whatever way I can.

I would certainly be interested!

K, i'm in too!

I tried attending the Albuquerque Linux Meetup thing but the 3 times I went nobody else showed. Maybe we could set something up... perhaps meet at a coffee shop and discuss Ubuntu.

Let me know your thoughts on this.

Count me in (Las Vegas)!

I like the idea of a Virtual meeting, with all the tools out there it could be just like being there. We could set up an IRC channel or a host of other options....

April 9th, 2007, 06:21 PM
I think that is a very good idea. A IRC channel would be the perfect way to start out.

:KS I wanted to thank William for the first New Mexico Ubuntu Newsletter....it's a great start.

For all those included in the first round, what would you like to see next?

April 12th, 2007, 09:19 AM
IRC would be best seeing as I'm waaay down here in the LC :-)

I was just sent a PDF by the marketing team for ubuntu of a new mag called full circle. It's only 17 pages but it's pretty slick. As soon as they get a few typos fixed and it's officially released I'll make it available on my web site and I'll post the link in here.

I noticed that the official Ubuntu Loco page says that there all ready is a New Mexico LoCo, I joined the mailing list but got no response. It also says there is an IRC channel but I can't find that either.

I emailed the contact directly but got no response, It looks like the last time he updated his profile was in 2005. I wander who we contact to see what is going on?

Well, I've been in the #Ubuntu-newmexico IRC channel a couple of times and I get requesting information from the mailing list owners but still not getting anywhere. But don't worry I will try my best to get the LOCO organized. check out my web site for more information http:\\myweb.cableone.net/dthomas.

Hi All,

I'm very new to all this Linux stuff actually I just had a PC built and had Linux Ubunto installed on it and I am so lost. But I am trying and so far its been fun. I am running a dual boot system. I also have two 22'' flat screen monitors and I was wondering if there was a way that I can use both of them in Linux instead of just one. I also was wondering if there is a way to use my wireless Bluetooth keyboard. If anyone could or would want to help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Well we sure can help.
Look at the thread in this forum called Dual Screens and desktop effects.
In that is all the information on setting up Dual screens...let me know if you need help with it.
Plus be sure and join the New Mexico LOCO lots of good help there.
