User help

If you have a problem with GNOME software, it is recommended that you seek help through your distribution. The GNOME Project does provide a number of ways to get support using its software, however:

  • User documentation: the GNOME Project has an extensive library of help documentation written to help you use our software. You can view this online or use the built in GNOME help browser.
  • Bug reporting: if you think that you are experiencing an error with our software, you can search and file reports in our bug database.
  • Contact users, enthusiasts and developers: the GNOME Project provides several ways to make contact with users, enthusiasts and developers, including IRC chat and email mailing lists. The #gnome IRC channel and GNOME List mailing list are the most general in scope: use these if you are unsure which list or channel to use.

Partner organisations, sponsors and legal matters

The GNOME Foundation serves as the interface between the GNOME Project and our partner companies and organisations. See the GNOME Foundation site for further details.
