April 3rd, 2024 — Fedora and KDE with KDE Plasma 6

Central INdiana Linux User Group (CINLUG)’s April meeting will be an informative one with a talk on Fedora & KDE, with KDE Plasma 6 by Neal Gompa1!

The Fedora Linux distribution is commonly known for its GNOME variant “Fedora Workstation”.  But did you know that Fedora has a KDE variant, too?  And did you know that it has the latest and greatest from KDE in the upcoming Fedora 40 release with KDE Plasma 6?  This talk will provide a brief overview of Fedora KDE and KDE Plasma 6.0, as well as what Fedora brings to the table with Fedora KDE.

The meeting will begin at 18:30 (6:30 PM) EDT on Wednesday, April 3rd.
