Small but resilient team

In January 2016 we had an election for a new project lead, only one person answered. And while the number of contributors saw a positive increase during the cycle, it barely made up for the ones who have left; yes, Ubuntu Studio is a flavour menaced by extinction! The road to this release was bumpy and hard. But we made it.

Want to help out?

We are desperate for contributors. Especially if you have developing skills, but your contribution is precious regardless of your field of activity. All you need is a genuine desire to learn, and we will do our best to teach you. Just head over to our contribute page to find out how to get started.

Found a bug?

Taking the time to report bugs makes a huge difference; it’s the first step towards improvement! Clear and specific bug reports is the best way to get attention to a problem that needs fixing. The easiest way to create a bug report is with the terminal.

Open one up and type: ubuntu-bug <package>
