I'm in Conway, too, but I know nothing about nvidia. A great resource has been the Central Arkansas Linux Users Group -- http://www.carlug.org/ -- OOPS the web site is still down, but the email list is working.... try https://lists.silverorb.net/mailman/listinfo/carlug-discuss

The group has a get-together third saturday every month at San Francisco Bread Co., 10am. Coming up this Saturday.

Next April 21st the group is planning its annual Install Feast, which is usually at the Faulkner County Library on Tyler St. All day installations, hardware swap, snacks, pizza & drinks.

Nixa. The last time I went through Fayetteville (on my way to Ft. Smith), the new road wasn't done yet. Just me and the chicken trucks going over the mountain at 3:00AM. That's when I learned that in Arkansas, a 35mph caution sign means 35mph... (I got a good view of some tree tops before I managed to get the car back on the road) In Missouri, the same sign would mean anywhere from 45 to 50. :lol:

This past month the three of us sat on the right side as you enter San Francisco Bread, all the way back even with the order counter. Turnout is sometimes light -- maybe it was nonexistent the month you were there. Next time, if you can, post to the carlug.org email list the day before and someone will know to look for you.

LRLUG is meeting at the moment at Sufficent Grounds, but this may change in the near future.

Attendance at the monthly meetings (at San Francisco Bread Co.) has picked up a lot so try us again. Lately we've been at a table nearer the door.

For the July meeting the conwaycorp WAP was down so it was an opportunity for the geekiest attendees to pull a vast array of shiny equipment from their utility belts and connect to the Internet anyway.

Prolly get rid if XP if I can learn enough to use Ubuntu, but I know about as much about it as I do Windoze! So far I like 7.04. Glad to know there are folks close by that may be able to answer questions. Gonna bookmark this. Best regards to all. :)

Just started using Ubuntu last week trying to change over from XP. So far it is going well until I upgraded from 7.04 to 7.10. Have lost Thunderbird and some other settings. I upgraded from CD since all the sites were so busy and slow. That may have been my mistake. Still looking. Any advice would be appreciated.:guitar:

It SHOULD have worked, but since Thunderbird isn't AS supported as Evolution they may have missed something in that package. Since your installation is only a week old, if you don't mind losing everything I would suggest a clean install. (I haven't upgraded to Gutsy myself, but given the time it takes to do a typical upgrade, I moved all my working data to an external drive and plan to do a clean install when I'm ready, and a Feisty reinstallation if I have trouble.)

There are some major changes in things like network management and graphics acceleration/effects. It very likely was a fluke if you don't see it all over the forums but it could be related to your hardware.

Good luck!

P.S.: If you're near enough to Conway, stop by the CARLUG meeting tomorrow morning. Details at http://carlug.org/

Did you ever make it to "Billy's Chili" before he retired?

I was doing a search for "Billy's Chili Springfield Missouri" on Google and this thread came up. I am so glad to find anything on the web about it that I had to sign up to these forums to let you know that I remember and loved Billy's Chili. I liked the location a lot. I was just a kid when my parents took me there a few times. I remember the hanging airplanes made out of Coke cans. I remember the food being really really good. My parents went to SMSU when they were in their 30's and it was a really great time to get to be alive in Springfield Missouri in the late 80's and early 90's. I am actually compiling my thoughts and memories about that time and place for a possible project or book on the subject.

I am so glad there are people out there who lament the loss of such a fine Springfield establishment.

p.s. And yes, it will always be SMSU to me. ;)

I, too, am in Arkansas now. I'm in Benton (foothills). Nowhere near NW AR, but Arkansan nonetheless.

I was already a member of the Louisiana LoCo team (my best friend Rob can be found easily there). I don't necessarily wish to end membership with that team, they are very active (likely more active than most). I was born and raised in Shreveport, LA and moved here from Monroe, LA, where I've been for the last 7 years.

I'm an Arkansan now, though, so I'd be interested in participating in this LoCo, or at least getting on the mailing list.

I started using Ubuntu with the Warty release candidate. I started playing with Kubuntu at Breezy and am currently still using Kubuntu, though I have had nothing but excellent experience with the default gnome.

Great to hear from you!

There are some local linux groups that predate Ubuntu -- check out http://www.arlug.org/ for a list Tony B. (AKA Kwadroke of the Wired) keeps updated. The LRlug used to meet in/near Benton for awhile so there are probably still some folks nearby.

I'll bring my Hardy Vaio :)

Just found the ARLUG site... the LRLUG portion is empty. We really need to fix that folks!!! I'll be happy to assist or even take the lead here on that front. Anyone else interested in having a LR meet?

Hello, All!

I'm in Arkansas as well, somewhere between Sherwood and the Air Force Base. I've been using Linux for the past six years, Ubuntu so far being my favorite distribution.

I'm thirty-one; I work as a systems consultant by day and as a student at UALR by night.

I consider myself to be a "Linux Ambassador", which means merely that I help to introduce others to free/open-source software, to see if it fits their particular skill level and needs, and I also occasionally refurbish desktop (throwaway) computers to give to families that might not otherwise be able to afford something that I consider a very useful tool.

When I am not doing that, I have other things to keep me busy. I'm currently tinkering with an Ubuntu-powered Car PC with a completely touch-driven interface to handle mapping, geocaching, fuel, music, maintenance logging, and radio connectivity. I'm also a scuba diver and amateur radio operator.

So that's enough about me...what do you all use Ubuntu for?

Well, for whatever reason, my pin never showed. I'm in Bentonville.

I think you just click on the map showing where you are.

how do I put myself on the map???

It took me awhile to remember... others have suggested you can set your location on the TeamArkansas page, but here's the sure-fire way:

Go to your OWN page in Launchpad -- after you are registered and logged in at http://launchpad.net/ click your username at the top right corner to get to your Launchpad information. Scroll to the bottom of that page, and click the link under the Google map that says "Set location and time zone." You will see a Google map with some directions at the top. There is no need to find your exact street location -- in or near the nearest town is fine.

Thank you for setting your location! I hope we can plan some events based on where our team members live or work...

EDIT: I just realized I forgot to include a VERY important point -- you have to join Team Arkansas in launchpad before you show up on our map. https://launchpad.net/~teamarkansas/+map

Hey, I'm up here in Berryville. Been using Ubuntu since November 2009 and love it. I am wondering if there is a group that gets together in NW Arkansas, Springdale/Fayetteville/Rogers/Bentonville, or better, Eureka Springs or Harrison? I'd like to get together with some other users to learn more. I'm not a hacker, but would like to see Ubuntu much more well known. I am not likely to be writing, code, but wonder how a group working together could help push Ubuntu? I am becoming more and more enthusiastic about Ubuntu.


I am not a student, and I am a bit older than most here on the forum (60).

I've been tempted to go in a Office Max, or Office Depot, and load the a Ubuntu page on Internet Explorer on all the display computers, especially a UNR page on all the netbooks. Decided against it. Sounded a bit immature. Even at 60, I sometimes get ideas like that. Age doesn't keep me from thinking it, but from actually doing it.

Still, is there a local group, or are there others who would like to start one?

Hi, Burfoot.

I'm running Mint at home, Ubuntu at work. My Windows machine is virtual, I do AD-related stuff there. I also develop intranet sites with Dreamweaver. I've recently migrated our intranet to a CentOS machine that is AD-aware.

My favorite feature is seeing all of those Windows shares that end with "$". :lolflag:
