BLUA stands for Bangladesh Linux Users Alliance, a LUG formed in 2002 primarily to promote the use of GNU/Linux in the country. We’ve come a long way, and today we officially represent Ubuntu and Fedora in Bangladesh as well as working as the local affiliate of Creative Commons.
We’ve started working on to give a complete face-lift to our website, and as a part of it we’ve come up with a new logo for our organisation. Since this blog post will get aggregated on Planet Ubuntu and Planet Fedora, I’d like to take this opportunity to get feedbacks about the logo from all of you. There are some brilliant graphic designers in our community and I’ll sure with all of your inputs we can improve the logo! Please let me know what you honestly think about it, we’ll take all your comments and suggestions in account.
The logo was created by Adnan Quaium using Inkscape, and the font used comes with a “free for commercial use” license.
If you’re new to Ubuntu Linux and want to learn more about it, then this guide should be helpful to you. The topics covered are installation, package management, network and Internet connection setup, customization, proprietary hardware driver and multimedia support, troubleshooting, and much more.
Please pass on this message to your friends and colleagues who might be interested in using Ubuntu.
This meeting was a follow-up my e-mail to the BLUA mailing list regarding availability of Mandriva 2007 DVD. The respond was huge, so I decided to call for a meeting.
The meeting was held at Boomers in Banani. The people who joined in were all new faces. We talked about various issues including OSS development, bootloader, firewall, various distributions, and more. What was special about this meeting was presence of a female member, first time in our meeting history. We ain’t got much female Linux users in the country.
We initially planned to organise the monthly meeting on October 14th. However, few things messed up and we had to shift it to today. 12 members were present in the meeting, which was held at Metronet office in Gulshan 2. We started at 17:00, and mainly discussed about our upcoming projects, which are:
Royal Bengal Linux
Mirror Server Project
Media Distribution Project
There was a lot of brainstorming, and we got some good ideas and suggestions form our fellow members. My appreciation to everyone who joined on the meeting, specially to Mr. Rafiqul Islam who acted as the event manager and Mr. Ferdous Azam Khan, CEO of Metronet who was our host. Sorry, no pictures of the event as none of us were carrying a camera!
