Ubuntu

No matter what operating system you use, be it Windows, Mac OS, or Linux, you're inevitably going to run into some problems. But, especially with Ubuntu Linux, there's a wealth of information to help get you through your crisis. Below are eight ways to get help when you have a problem with Ubuntu.

1. Google
By far the easiest, most common method of fixing any problem. Google will search most of the items listed below, including user guides, wikis, forums, and newsgroups. But it's not always the easiest way to find the solution to an obscure problem, so here are some alternatives:

2. Ubuntuguide.org - The Ubuntu User Manual
This User Guide covers all the major aspects of Ubuntu, from installation to video driver support. It's a must-read for those new to Ubuntu, and especially for those just beginning in Linux. Roughly equivalent to the printed manual you'd get in a shrink-wrapped product, the guide comes in the form of a Wiki that can answer most of your basic questions.

3. Ubuntuforums.org - Help in 60 Seconds

KDE and Akademy

  • Akademy Day 4
    For most of the year, KDE—one of the largest free and open software communities in the world—works online by email, IRC, forums and mailing lists. Akademy provides all KDE contributors the opportunity to meet in person to foster social bonds, work on concrete technology issues, consider new ideas, and reinforce the innovative, dynamic culture of KDE. Akademy brings together artists, designers, developers, translators, users, writers, sponsors and many other types of KDE contributors to celebrate the achievements of the past year and help determine the direction for the next year. Hands-on sessions offer the opportunity for intense work bringing those plans to reality. The KDE Community welcomes companies building on KDE technology, and those that are looking for opportunities.
  • KDE Reveals Plasma Mobile
    There are a lot of interesting developments occurring in the field of Linux smartphones right now. With so many different options popping up, fragmentation is a risk, as apps built on one platform fail to migrate to another. KDE's new offering may help to make those apps available to a broader audience.
