Hello everyone. Please note that we have decided to postpone the Libre Graphics Meeting in Rennes to 2021.

For this year still, we are evaluating the possibility to make an online event, as some have expressed interest in doing so.

Stay tuned. Stay safe.

Heaps of fun making these quick videos too :)

I've just finished a set of screencasts on the Desktop Publishing tool Scribus for my students.

The program has come quite a long way since I last used it, it is really great to have a strong canvas alternative.

If anything, the lockdown has been a great opportunity to showcase free and libre open source software alternatives to my students and collegues.

Can post links when transcoding is finished, if there is any interest.

@frd One thing you can do there is follow the conference social media itself; @socallinuxexpo on Twitter (not sure where else atm). We put the track together within their CFP and schedule; dates & announcements are their prerogative.

Thing #2 to do would be join the CREATE mailing list if you're not on it yet. https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/create

Lots of other confs out there to be aware of, including the biggie @lgm in Rennes FR this coming May....

One of the runners is going to present a "what's new" recap talk and would like to collect what's new from as many interested projects as possible. You can add a note about yours here: https://hackmd.io/YfZioZJgTJK0_EnJEvQs3A?view

I wonder if “Backdoors in artworks: How artists atempt to keep control of their productions” could be a thesis subject.
