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!)
Please note: The real-time nature of chat 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 is not the preferred support method.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a real-time, open-source chat protocol. You can join our support chat here!

Many of the major software programs have their own resources and communities, such as:
- Ardour Forums
- Blender Manual
- GIMP Tutorials
- Inkscape Forums
- Krita Documentation
- LMMS Forums
- Scribus Wiki
This is not an exhaustive list; these are only examples. A web search might give you the support community you need.
Ubuntu Studio uses KDE Plasma Desktop as its desktop environment, and thus, questions concerning that can be directed at the related communities as well.
If you have questions about using Windows software via Wine, WineHQ is a useful resource to check for known compatibility issues and workarounds.
