LWN Subscriptions for Ubuntu Members

Ubuntu members are entitled to a subscription to Linux Weekly News.


  1. Apply for an account at Linux Weekly News. If you have an existing account you can skip this step.

  2. Send an email to Canonical's Business Services team (preferably using your ubuntu.com address) asking for a subscription sponsorship. This email MUST contain:

    • Your LWN username
    • Your Launchpad username.
  3. You will receive a mail when the subscription has been accepted.
  4. Enjoy LWN! (Read the FAQ)


There is a high amount of requests for these accounts, so unused account subscriptions are disabled and given to someone else if they remained inactive for 5 months. They can be enabled again, just email again per above when you next need it again.

If you have a question, you've found an error|improvement on this page or wish to give private testimonials email ubuntu-membership-boards@lists.ubuntu.com (your message may initially be held for moderation).
