Anglian Linux User Group

Welcome to the webpages for ALUG the Anglian Linux User Group. We are a group of Linux loving geeks primarily based in Norfolk and Suffolk but our LUG covers the whole of the East Anglia area and we have members (much) further afield.

Unfortunately our old wiki fell victim to a problem with our old hosting provider but thanks to JonathanMcDowell and his generosity we have a new wiki on his server. Anyhow this is a new and much emptier ALUG wiki. Please help us recreate our content and enhance it too.


Monthly PubMeetings take place in Norwich and Ipswich, 2nd Thursday of the month for Norwich at the Coach & Horses, see the PubMeetings page for more details.

Next Ipswich meeting: 20:00 Monday 20 December 2021 @ P J McGinty + Sons, 15 Northgate Street, Ipswich, IP1 3BY.

Next Norwich meeting: 20:00 Thursday 09 December 2021 @ The Coach and Horses, 82 Thorpe Road, Norwich, Norfolk.

We also occasionally run KitMeets, see the KitMeets page for more details.

Many of us attend Linux conferences and tradeshows. To see a list of upcoming events that members of ALUG are attending, visit the LinuxConferences page.

Planet ALUG

Many of ALUG's members are bloggers too!

The aggregator for these blogs can be found here and feeds for your favorite RSS aggregator are available in the RSS 1.0, RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0 formats. If you would like your feed added to the planet, then please send a feed url, and a name to or kick him on IRC or something... If you'd like to help manage it, then likewise, get in touch with BrettParker and he might actually get round to putting the planet somewhere more sane than his home directory on his vm :)
