Computing Seminars/Talks: Fundamental Operations in Linux Computing for Scientists

Presented by Brandon Morrison, Durham

8 March 2017 16:00 in CM301

I plan to explicitly show how to install Linux from a Live CD. How to use the repository in Linux to install programs (both via terminal and GUI interface), how to use the command line to install software not included in Linux repositories. I also want to show how to edit configuration files in Linux, and plan to use ClamAV as the example. I also will talk about different layouts with linux (aka Gnome vs. KDE, etc.).

This series of talks/seminars has the intention of sharing some practical computing skills in the department.

The talks are primarily aimed at PhD students in the early part of their PhDs, though they might also be of interest to students further through their PhDs and perhaps even others in the department. The idea is for older PhD students, and maybe other researchers, to share some tips and techniques that they’ve learnt from their own research in whichever software tools they use. It is hoped that this way we can share some useful tips and techniques and avoid new researchers having to spend a long time googling for ways to solve some common problems.

Supplementary files for these talks can be found here.
