Ubuntu GNOME Beginners

Are you new to Linux? No worries. We've all been there before. Smile :)

Joining our Mailing List is the best way to learn and get help. We also recommend perusing our Official Channels and joining us on social media.

Ubuntu GNOME Users

Users are those interested in and actively using Ubuntu GNOME. If you have been using Ubuntu GNOME or any official Ubuntu flavor, and feel familiar with the system, then you fit this category.

The purposes of this group include:

  1. Identifying and organizing Ubuntu GNOME users
  2. Creating opportunities to contribute to Ubuntu GNOME

Users are not required to volunteer frequent hours to supporting Ubuntu GNOME. However, we find that most users love the system and want to contribute. We welcome your enthusiasm! If you'd like to contribute, we ask for at least one hour per week.


The most common way to help is by supporting beginners in their learning of the system and with problems they encounter. This is a huge help that we do need and seek, and it fosters a strong community.
