Linux User Groups
- See if you can find a Linux User Group near you. These organizations offer support and education in person and also often online.
- If there is no Linux User Group near you, the Linux User Group HOWTO page tells how to start one in your area.
- Usenet newsgroups are an incredible resource for information of just about any kind. The Wikipedia Usenet page gives a good overview of Usenet and some excellent follow-up links to get you started in no time. Once you have newsgroup software set up and have chosen a provider, you can do a search for groups by topic (like Linux or Ubuntu, for instance). Usenet is full of people with varying amounts of experience who are more than willing to help those with questions.
A few good places to go to look or ask for help are:
- Kubuntu forums
- Kubuntu guide – all versions
- Ubuntu Forums
- Ubuntu guide – all versions
- The Linux Documentation Project
- The Linux Newbie Administrator Guide
