The Linux Users' Group of Davis is a 501(c)(7) non-profit computer club serving the Sacramento region, consisting of hundreds of people who share an interested in the Linux® operating system, Free & Open Source software and other related topics — both technical and non-technical.

Our goals are to advocate the use of Linux and Open Source, to educate the community on these software alternatives, and to support and provide a social network for local Linux users.

LUGOD holds regular meetings twice a month. On the first Tuesday of each month, we hold a social gathering at a local restaurant or café, and on the third Monday of each month we meet at the Davis Public Library to listen to informative presentations by guest speakers. (Day, time and location subject to change!)

We also hold other events and workshops and maintain a number of active mailing lists (some with over 200 subscribers), an IRC channel for live chatting, and communities on social networks (Facebook and LinkedIn).

Our meetings, events and membership, are free and open to the general public. Join us!

* Krita: Beyond Painting
Presented by
Will marshall

Krita is an open-source program designed for digital artists, animators, and designers. Come to our demonstration of the program's tools and interface, and see how it's used for tasks from conception and painting to photo editing. Its unique "heads-up display" palette toolbar is a remarkable piece of interface design and lends itself to many versatile and ingenious uses in many fields, but especially valuable with graphics tablets. The demonstration is open to all who are interested in original art and graphic editing.

There is also a flyer available for this event. Please print a copy and share!
