Laptops

We need Laptops to do demonstrations of GNU/Linux desktops in breaks between conference sessions.

  • MohammedSammeer
  • Toni
  • Angoranimi
  • Ramez Hanna
  • MarwaYoussef

  • Alaa

  • DJ-King

CDs

Since we where asked to represent arabization efforts (we will represent both EGLUG and Arabeyes), we would better distribute an Arabic enabled live distro.

Arabbix 0.8 is very out of date and has various problems, arabbix 0.9 is very alpha and wouldn't work, if we have enough time we will create a quick mod of Knoppix, Morphix or Mandrake Move.

otherwise we should have 5 copies of Arabbix 0.8 for demonstration purposes.

we will probably distyribute Knoppix, we tend to favour Move for its ease of use but this time I think features are more important than ease of use.

we shall also have 20 copies of phaeronix and hopefully phaeron will be there to demonstrate and tell the people about it.


Pamphlets

everything will be in arabic only, no need for dual and we can't afford it anyway

the important thing is to make a splash, we need brochures to tell about EGLUG, a draft is ready, we've got no time to do fancy formatting but maybe we'll manage something.

since the events don't provide much techinical info and rather focus on large aspects it would be nice to provide informational pamphlets, we'll use the ones we used on the InstallFest

it would also be nice if we distribute the alex case study acompanied by a list of future/potential case studies, anyone knows of good uses of FOSS in Egyptian organizations??


Presentation

we shall give a presentation about Arabic community efforts and arabization, we'll recycle slides from our old seminars in universities

the event is open to the public, I hope we get as many EGLUG members as is humanly possible to attend.

Shouldn't have somebody dropped me a note sooner?

Anyway I'll be ready with latest version I can pump. See you there.


I wish I could install phaeronix on my patients.

Two wallpaper are sent

I think if there something needed I can help in ,just tell it to me .it won’t be assignment .

I used the same spelling of word linux by Arabic as written on the flyers . I wish I can make wallpaper for phaeronix to express about it's specifications.

U know picture is worth 1,000 words :)

very nice

unfortunately we won't be able to use these in this event (unless laptop owners put them as desktop backgrounds).

but maybe by next week we will have a decent remastered liveCD using these in splashscreens and backgrounds.

what would help is if you do a design for the flyers and pamphlets.

cheers,

Alaa
