The way to be a power user of Ubuntu Linux can be summarized in five simple steps that each new user, in any category, you will find easy and fun to make. Using Ubuntu is much more than running an operating system, it is to enter into an ideological movement for freedom in my opinion, is symbolized by the statue of liberty in the United States.

Steps 1 – Join the forum Ubuntu.

The first thing you should do as a new user of Ubuntu is to join the Ubuntu forums. It is a very helpful place where you can get to introduce yourself, make friends with newbie and more experienced geeks like you, ask any question you have about Ubuntu or Open Source in general, join any ongoing conversation and more.

Step 2 – Get your own personal reference manuals.

It is highly recommended for your reference manuals on Ubuntu and Linux in general. Linux is more of a subject that can be drawn more than enough to use. With Ubuntu Linux, there is always something to learn and is very worth it given the fact that Linux is ready for the future of computing. You can also improve your calculation, when you get to learn as much as possible on Linux. There will also be surprised at the kind of euphoria that you experience when you deal successfully with its system just as first without the help of anyone. Two of my personal favorite reference manuals on Ubuntu Linux Ubuntu 9.04 and Kubuntu 9.04, 4-disc DVD contains: Linux Training Library, “Introduction to Linux” video-DVD, also includes printed Quick Reference Card of Linux commands, 32-bit set and Ubuntu Linux Toolbox: 1000 + Commands for Ubuntu and Debian Power Users. They are very powerful mortgage of reference is necessary to have at home or office.

Step 3 – Ask, ask, and ask.

Any problem can be faced with using Ubuntu Linux, make sure you know that someone out there has encountered the problem before and all you have to do to get the solution will be to ask. This brings us to the first step to join the forum. Should also be using Google a lot. Just Google your question and get millions of results suggested a few seconds. Do not shut your mouth when you have a problem and run back to Windows simply because you had a problem with Ubuntu Linux. You have to ask for help. Even more specific suggestions on the forum, you should clarify that you are a beginner. Most people are willing to help newcomers more than others. Do not let your friends tease Windows with the age-old phrase of “that’s Linux for you”, just because they asked. The solution for every problem Ubuntu Linux is as simple as asking the right place.

Step 4 – Experiment with the system.

The only sure fire way of being a Linux guru is to practice, and what the practice is better to experiment with your system. They always have a backup of the system and experiment with other ways of using Ubuntu. Do not just solve for the default configuration of your installation. Apply the skills and tips you learn in the books mentioned above as you can read about other methods of getting things done and to apply them. Read and applied more broadly. Always make sure you backup your system though. Try to use other utilities like Compos and a host of others. Testing how to make your system unique and you will be surprised by what you get to learn by doing.

Step 5 – Help others out

This is the most important step of all five. Ubuntu Linux is a worldwide community of people who believe in “humanity to others” and, as such, should grope to help others as possible. If all you know is how to run a LiveCD, share knowledge with someone. Each time you visit the Ubuntu forums, be sure to look for new users like you and share your little experience with them. Help as much as possible. Go out of your way to be helpful for new users with every single bit of knowledge you have. More than ten million people using and benefiting from a powerful, reliable and secure operating system, because a man believed in return to others. The least we can do is to share your experience with those in need. You will be surprised at the level of knowledge you gain your share with others.

Practice these simple but powerful points and soon you will be on track to be a geek that others will try to help and support.
