Hi shizzy, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas), and the Cinnamon Spices website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon.

You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint :wink:

Sounds like you did connect, but it gave some warnings. Did you see a list of users on the right-hand side of the window? You'll have to pick a different nickname, which you can do from the Xchat > Network list menu.

It should automatically connect you to the Linux Mint Server in the Network List. (irc.spotchat.org as server, channel #linuxmint-chat and #linuxmint-help) You can also connect to it from Firefox, visit http://community.linuxmint.com/ and go to Community > Chat room.
