USE THIS METHOD FIRST!
Ask Ubuntu is the best way to receive support, and the preferred support method. It is monitored by much of the Ubuntu community, and answers to your questions can be edited in the future. You might even find the answer to your question there! (Remember, Ubuntu Studio is Ubuntu!)
Via Chat and Instant Messaging
Please note: The real-time nature of chat and instant messaging means it is usually the fastest way to get help, but also that you might have to stick around for a while until someone is able to answer your question (even hours!). Chat and Instant Messaging are not the preferred support methods.
Matrix is a real-time, open-source chat protocol. You can join our support chat here!
