    Contact and Support

    There are three ways to contact the Kubuntu Project, mailing lists (email), Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and the forums.

    Mailing Lists

    Mailing lists are the Kubuntu Project's official communication tools. They allow for email discussions and have searchable archives.

    To begin using the mailing lists, please subscribe. Subscribing allows you to post a message without having it sit in an authorization queue, and allows you to receive messages from others who are also subscribed to the mailing list.

    Before you send a message, check to see if the topic has been raised in the past. To do this, use Google to search the archives.

    Internet Relay Chat

    IRC allows you to communicate in real-time with many others who are also using IRC and are on common networks and channels. For more information about IRC clients, see Chat Clients.

    IRC Networks

    All Ubuntu and Kubuntu channels are on the Libera network. The server address is 'irc.libera.chat', and the default port is '6667'. Use the command /join #channelname to join a channel.

    For example:/join #kubuntu

    Kubuntu IRC Channels

    Connect to #kubuntu on the web here: #kubuntu

    • #kubuntu-offtopic: For off-topic chatter with your fellow Kubuntu users
    • #kubuntu-devel: This is the channel where the developers hang out


    Kubuntu Forums are located at: Kubuntu Forums

    Application Help

    In most KDE applications there is a 'Help' button in the toolbar that will lead you to the handbook. For general KDE documentation, see KDE Documentation and KDE Userbase Wiki.

    Kubuntu Phone Support

    If you or your organization need help with your computer systems that are running Kubuntu but you don't want to worry about the finding best IRC channel to ask in, you can pay some money and phone up the office in England to get some help. They will use phone, e-mail, Google hangout, Skype, VNC and any other method you like to help diagnose the issue and resolve it for you.
