    Lightbulb New to Ubuntu? Start here...


    Welcome to Ubuntu and the Forums.

    Finding your way around Ubuntu and the documentation for it can be a bit tricky. This thread will hopefully help point you towards reliable sources of information, and also tell you how to get the most out of these forums when a search doesn't reveal the answer.

    Reading Material to get you started...

    Free Ubuntu Pocket guide by Keir Thomas
    Ubuntu website (Canonical)
    Official Ubuntu documentation
    Community documentation (searchable)
    Psychocats Ubuntu guide
    ZabiGG's Newbie 101
    Comprehensive list of weblinks about Ubuntu
    Ubuntu-centric Google Custom Search

    Links for Specific Advice

    How to get and install Ubuntu
    Using Ubuntu
    Multimedia problems and Installing Codecs
    Installing Programs & Applications in Ubuntu
    Specific Hardware How-tos
    Doesn't work? Ask for help
    Books about Ubuntu / Linux
    User submitted links
    Ubuntu News & Blog sites

    If you've written a how-to or used another you found helpful, please tell us about it.

    No requests for help here though!

    In an attempt to keep this thread compact with helpful posts only, I have moved all responses, thank-you posts etc to a derivative thread.

    Please post any future comments (or additional help) in the Beginner's Team sticky.
