Hello and welcome to the new Ubuntu-UK forum on ubuntuforums.org

Just to point out, there is already a well established, long running and official LoCo team already in place.

You can see details about them here: http://ubuntu-uk.org/ including the irc channel - #ubuntu-uk on irc.freenode.net and mailing list at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-uk

Hey, were using it now then.

Wow, a Ubuntu-UK forum, this is strange :)

August 8th, 2007, 05:15 PM
btw "You are not alone" is a super song by the mad Europop duo, Modern Talking - perhaps it should be the Ubuntu-UK theme song (check it out on www.singingfish.com or similar - it is seriously mad!) :guitar:

ahh man , come on I like reading & speaking with you folks.

Awesome a forum just for us. :)

Wow how nice. Finally a forum where the word colour will always have a u (only kidding). How long has this existed for?

August 8th, 2007, 08:25 PM
Never realized there was an Ubuntu UK LoCo, never mind a forum.

*shambles off for a stiff whisky*

Any old excuse :)

I think I prefer the mailing list and irc, but it's good to know it's here..

August 13th, 2007, 11:22 AM
Interesting to note there are people posting here Ive not seen on the Mailist and on IRC. have we been missing you guys out ?

If so I am soooo sorry.

Not another place to check for info...!

Hello! :)

I'm a new convert to Ubuntu from openSuSE and I'm loving it, I found the LoCO teams but it was all very confusing about how to join so finding the forum was nice! I can deal with forums, I understand them, plus it means I only have to look in one place.

Sooo... now what?

August 26th, 2007, 01:59 PM
Sooo... now what?i'm sure we'll be able to get discussion going about some UK events when they start appearing again this year.

I'm a pretty time impoverished user new to computers generally - even windows. Ubuntu does all I want and I don't have to sift thru all the useless junk on the web to find what software I need. The online community is just superb!
I'm sure Mr Gates did the world a service in making the PC more user friendly to the likes of myself. However, I wou;ld not consider installing Windows on any computer of mine nowadays - and the kids have their own machine and Wine here.
Well done guys! Linux developers are the largely unsung heroes of the digital age.
P.S. The quick reply window does not work here (Feisty - Gnome - Konqueror)

Hello chaps,
God Bless the UK and all who sail in her.

Anyone know how to get Podcast.net to work or am I thick ? Tried Mediaplay connectivity and mplayer and cut and pasting into rythmbox but no luck. Little words please :mad:

Hello folks welcome :-)

Just to remind you all, the Ubuntu-UK Local Community Team can be found at www.ubuntu-uk.org

The mailing lists tend to be busier than the forums, so feel free to join sign up and join in (details on the site). We also have an IRC channel at #ubuntu-uk on irc.freenode.org

Nice to see you all.
