Welcome to the Milwaukee Linux Users Group

The purpose of MLUG is to promote use of open-source operating systems, primarily Linux, and educate any and all who would like to advance their knowledge thereof. MLUG does not restrict itself to Linux; we are concerned with Unix-derived operating systems in general, as well as other open-source software and hardware.

Important: to stay current on our meetings and activities, sign up for the mailing list. This is a low-volume mail list that allows our members to ask questions, help each other with technical issues, and ask for (or give) technical advice. It is also where we announce meetings and other group activities.

How to sign up for the mail list:
  • Go to the Milwaukee LUG Forum Page.
  • At the top, click the blue Sign in button.
  • Sign in with a GMail / Google account, or
  • Click Create account
  • If you want to use a Google email address:
    • Create a Google/Gmail account, or sign into an existing one.
  • If you want to use a non-Google email address
    • Click Use my current email address instead
    • Follow the instructions to Create your Google Account using the email address (Google or non-Google) you want to use.
Milwaukee LUG is currently meeting virtually. When we resume in-person meetings, they will be held at Summit Credit Union, as below.

We meet at 1:00 pm the second Saturday of every month.  Meetings are held at:

Summit Credit Union building
10015 W. Greenfield Ave
Milwaukee, WI  53214

Doors open at 1PM, with discussion, announcements, and chit-chat.
Topic (if any) starts at 1:30pm

If you have ideas on this topic, please feel free to perform some basic research into it and report back to the group. 

All are welcome regardless of skill level or favorite flavor. When you get there follow the signs to be greeted by our strangely friendly group.

Next Meeting:  Second Saturday of the Month

If the date above is past, the usual second Saturday rule applies.


We are looking for volunteers to design an build a new site to replace the failed legacy site.
