What!

ONLINE Sessions

  • NO PHYSICAL MEETINGS until further notice.
  • ONLINE session by public JITSI remote video meeting service next on 7 March 2024.
  • Connection instructions will be first sent to our mailing lists and then linked here .
  • Configuration Workshop

  • We often hold a Configuration Workshop when nothing else more interesting comes up, or when there is no other event or activity scheduled.
  • This is a Hardware and Software Workshop where we usually configure, examine, fix, install, repair, and troubleshoot difficult hardware and software configuration problems. Usually for personal computer newcomers, and sometimes we may even be helpful with enterprise issues. Problems with Linux and other operating systems and hardware are also frequently fixed. Linux issues may predominate; however, we are hardware vendor and Operating System agnostic.
  • Linux is an Internet capable Networking Operating System that provides many fully functional applications that perform well on both older and new computers. Most Linux distributions are free or low cost, and provides an extremely reliable and cost effective alternative to high priced proprietary software.
  • For beginners and newcomers, we can evaluate your hardware and current Operating System setup. If we determine there is sufficient time, we can assist performing a complete functioning Linux installation.
  • Monthly Meetings

    We are a not-for-profit, vendor independent group. We help computer users with their new and old
    hardware issues and software configuration problems.

    We usually meet on the first Thursday of every month.

    Founded in 1976, we are a non-machine specific and non-Operating System (OS) specific users group.

    All hardware, operating systems and software are explored. New software tools are often demonstrated. This group welcomes all PC user hardware and software configuration problems because it is fun to fix them. Help with Unix, BSD, Linux, other Operating Systems and hardware problems is usually available. So, please join us at our next meeting or event for fun, knowledge and networking.

    A SLUUG Special Interest Group

  • NO PHYSICAL MEETINGS until further notice.
  • SLACC is an independent group; but, also loosely affiliated with the St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG), as one of their sponsored Special Interest Groups.
