Ubuntu (and derived) users Catalan community

Feel warmly welcome to the catalan community. Here you will find contents and information of interest if you use this operating system in any of its flavours:

If this is your first visit, you may feel confused because of the huge amount of information is available about the Ubuntu operating system. You may, also, be new to GNU/LInux and, probably, you don't have the skills to use it fluently. If this is your case, don't worry: the Ubuntu users catalan community is willing to help you!!

This is the catalan Ubuntu users wiki front page, also known as catalan "LoCo Team". This name, although what it might be thought, it has nothing to do with our mental health state (LoCo in spanish means "crazy, mad"), but is the english acronym of "LOcal COmmunity Team". Next you will find the information about how our volunteer group is structured, how can you ask for help or want to get involved in our community, and which are our regular activities. Keep on reading!!!

Ubuntu is mostly based on the task of the prestigious [http://www.us.debian.org/ Debian] ([http://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debian article at wikipedia.org]) project, a 100% free (as beer and as speech) operating system, founded by Ian Murdock in 1993 (when Linux kernel was only 2 years old) and developed from then, until nowadays, by thousands of volunteers spread all over the world. If you are interested in knowing more about the Ubuntu project and its relation with the open source software community (specially with Debian) we suggest to begin at [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu wikipedia.org article]

The wiki

A wiki is a web space that Ubuntu offers which allows community members to add, erase or modify its contents very easily, without even knowing one word of the HTML language. This way, creating new pages is very fast and the wiki becomes a very efficient tool for collective publishing. At the moment, you are reading the english version front page of our wiki. If you want to bookmark its location for further referencies, you should use [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CatalanTeam/English/Main this link].

Mail list

A mail list is a tool that allows all emails sended to it to be redistributed automatically to all the mail list subscribers. This way, it is possible to ask for help to multiple receptors or stablish group discussions (offline).

The Ubuntu users catalan community owns a mail list through which you can ask for help. First of all, you will have to subscribe at [https://lists.lafarga.cpl.upc.edu/mailman/listinfo/ubuntucat-info this page]. After that, you will be able to make your questions sending an email to [ubuntucat-info@cpl.upc.edu] and you will receive the answers to the email adress you have specified when subscribing.


Some people may not feel comfortable with mail lists and prefer to communicate with other people through web based forums, using a regular web browser. To meet their needs, we have also setup a forum space. You will find it at [http://cat.ubuntuforums.org/] Join us!!

IRC chat channel
