Useful factoids


If you find a bug in Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, please file a bug using the command « ubuntu-bug <package> » - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs for other ways to report bugs - Bugs in/wishes for the IRC bots (not Ubuntu) can be filed at http://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-bots


You can find out about how Ubuntu uses bug statuses here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Status


It's a weekend. Often on weekends the paid developers and a lot of the community may not be around to answer your question. Please be patient, wait longer than you normally would or try again during the working week.


The official ubuntu support channel is #ubuntu. Also see http://ubuntu.com/support and http://ubuntuforums.org


Stable Release Update information is at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates


Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)


The packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories and http://www.ubuntu.com/project/about-ubuntu/components - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories


Post your ideas for Ubuntu at http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com and vote for the ones you like!


Please investigate with me only with "/msg ubottu Bot" or in #ubuntu-bots.  Search for factoids with "/msg ubottu !search factoid".


When relevant to a conversation, package info can be displayed in the channel

!info pkgname <release>

For example:

   1 <you> !info apport
   2 <ubottu> apport (source: apport): automatically generate crash reports for debugging. In component main, is optional. Version 1.13.3-0ubuntu2 (lucid), package size 53 kB, installed size 2012 kB
