Linux Users' Group of Davis - "Serving the Sacramento, California region"

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!

We are relaunching the Linux Users Group of Davis to get ready for the influx of new students with the upcoming school year. We plan to raise awareness with promotional materials, better publicity, and have an Installfest later this year, so please join us this month to discuss upcoming activities, give your feedback, and volunteer to help your local LUG thrive as we move towards 2019! And afterwards there will be Linux trivia, complete with prizes! All of our meetings are always open to the public, so whether you are a old friend, new member, or just have an interest in Linux and Free/Open Source Software, everyone is invited to participate!

There is a flyer available for this meeting. Please download, print, and share!

Listserv Issues
Posted Fri. July 13, 6:00pm
Apologies to members who are subscribed to our mailing lists, including vox and vox-announce, if you receive either no emails or duplicate email from the lists. Our listserv IP address was apparently banned by Microsoft/Office 365 sometime in the past month, resulting in a ton of list emails bouncing to all our members whose email services are MS-based. This includes all,, and many others. An application to de-list our IP has been made.
