Good topic ikey.

Furthermore, "How to use the IRC" is also available on the new community website.
It's essentially the same information covered here, with another few tidbits on pastebin and imagebin.

Yay for Linux Mint IRC channels :P

IRC (Internet Relay Chat) may be archaic but it still RULES! It's been a godsend for me!

If you are using Mint right now then you can just open X-Chat and it will automatically connect
to the channels. If you are using an alternative client you will need these details:

Code: Select all

Port   : 6667 (SSL is 6697)
or simply type in the input window the text below:


and then type one of the following chat rooms to join:

/join #linuxmint
/join #linuxmint-help
/join #linuxmint-chat
/join #pimpmymint

Had to add that because when I was beginning I got confused where to enter the server and chat info. :wink:
