APCAPCContinuing the "parade of hardware" this month, Srinavas Gumdelli recently recieved a $49 Android PC from Via which will be shown at the meeting.

As the name implies, yes it runs Android OS and we all know that has the Linux kernel underneath. While the APC is similar to the Raspberry Pi in cost and hardware capabilities, it is quite a bit different.

RaspberryPi BoardRaspberryPi BoardTopics:

1) The Raspberry Pi - my Raspberry Pi arrived a week before the meeting. I ordered on the first day and went through RS Components. I must have been way down on the list that supposedly was around 100,000 orders. I know two guys in Billings who ordered from Element 14 and got theirs a week or two before I did. I'll be showing the Raspberry Pi, the most recent build of Debian Wheezy for Raspberry Pi, as well as a custom Lego case my son made.

2) Plugable Multi-Seat - One of the more exciting features added to systemd, gdm and GNOME 3 Shell in Fedora 17 was "multi-seat" support... just plug-in a compatible USB device and it automatically fires up an additional login session. Supply an additional monitor, mouse, and keyboard (and speakers/headphones) for each user and you can turn one computer into a usable system for up to 10 people. I have one unit of both Plugable models and will show them in action. For more information, see the video on their kickstarter page. Just plug them in and they work... no software setup required... amazing!

Topics:

  • What's new in GIMP 2.8
  • Intro to Krita 2.4
  • Using a high resolution input device with pressure sensitivity

GIMP 2.8 is just around the corner. We'll have a look at several of the new features in GIMP 2.8 including the "Single Window" mode it offers.

Calligra (a fork of Koffice like LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice.org) recently released version 2.4 of all of their applications including Krita. Krita is an often overlooked bitmap image editing program especially well suited to original art composition. We'll take a look at Krita 2.4 using a VisTablet for input.
