Lanka Linux User Group, also known as LK-LUG, is the premier organization in Sri Lanka for promoting free software. Since its beginnings in 1998 with 40 members, hundreds of Linux enthusiasts around the world have joined.

Members of the LK-LUG community are diverse: some use Linux at home for multimedia, computer gaming and Internet access, while some others use it at work to run large scale, mission critical applications. Activities of the Group include helping each other over the mailing lists, educating the general public by participating at exhibitions, workshops and media, and pushing the use of FOSS in national ICT programmes.

LK-LUG also is working on localisation of the Linux desktop to the Sinhala language. The group has made good progress in converting some major components. A Live-CD based Linux distribution is available.
