Unable to find registration key (Solved)

Post by Octavian » Sat Sep 12, 2015 1:00 am

So I am trying to figure out how to create an account on the Linux mint community. Unfortunately I can't find IRC chat that it is talking about. Its not on my Linux mint qiana. I remember seeing the IRC chat in Linux mint Rebecca when I had that version but its missing in qiana. So needless to say I am at a loss.

Forgive me but this statement just seems to not make any sense when there is not an application called IRC Chat and the way it is worded is really confusing;
To get a registration code connect to the chatroom (From within Linux Mint, launch Menu->Welcome Screen and click on Chat Room), introduce yourself and ask for a registration code.
I would really appreciate it if any of you know a work around. They have no email on their website or I would have sent them a message about my problem.

I don't know which desktop version you are using, but if it's Cinnamon, click Menu, Preferences, Welcome Screen, Chat Room.

There is no "Preferences" listed on my start menu

The start menu is in the images that are attached

"Settings" is the way to go. You could also enter "Welcome" in the search box at the bottom of the menu, this will filter the entry for you.
