    IRC - How to connect?

    I've never done this before, can some one show me the way?
    I get by with a little help from my friends.

    Sorry, I'm trying to join the #Ubuntu IRC but I can't even figure out how to sign up and configure my Pidgin.

    In the Pidgin IRC console, type:
    Code:
    /join #ubuntu-irc
    You can use ChatZilla or IRSSI as well for IRC..

    much easier to use one of the IRC clients to connect rather than pidgeon.
    for gnome i reccomend Xchat and if your a KDE guy Konversation is the way to go.
    both connect to default servers on startup and have extensive help files along with forums for additional help getting started.

    I don't think so. (But I am not sure what you mean.)

    i reccomend you to get Xchat irc client. its user friendly.. click on applications->add/remove-> in searchbox type Xchat(dont press enter)->put a cec near xchat and click on apply. let it download all the stuff, and then to open it u go to applications->internet->Xchat IRC
    then when u open it you will get to choose your name, and a server u want to connect to. click on "+ Add" give aname to server "Ubuntu Forums" then click on edit. in poped out window click edit and type in
    Code:
    irc.ubuntu.com/8001
    Then in channels to join add
    Code:
    #ubuntuforums
    click close, now in server list click on Ubuntu Forums and click on JOIN.
    Welcome to ubuntu forums IRC channel!
