What is IRC?

#manjaro IRC is a place to provide additional direct support to Manjaro users.

You can connect to the #manjaro channel on irc.freenode.net.

  • Frequent users will probably prefer an IRC client like Weechat, Hexchat or Konversation
  • One-time users will probably prefer a web-based chat, such as http://webchat.freenode.net/

It's not a replacement for the forum, but supplements it with direct community support. Sometimes it is quiet and sometimes busy, but we will try to help.

Also, sometimes the reason it is busy is that the conversation has gone off-topic!

For further issues that can't be solved on IRC there is always the Forum.

How do I use Manjaro IRC?

When you connect by manjaro.org (main site). You come intoo an Menu. You set there your nick name for IRC. under that line you see on which channels you are connected. You see: #manjaro and #manjaro-talk (off-topic).

Normally you going to log intoo manjaro irc on two channels.

When you are logged in, intoo the standard IRC client you have an name like Manjarouser. you can change temporarely your nick with :

/nick [your nickname]

For example, to set your nick as "John", you would enter the following:

/nick John

The only rule of the IRC Channel is to be friendly. Just be your friendly self, and you'll find a lot of other friendly people to socialize with and receive support from.


Asking questions on IRC

  1. Ask the question. You don't need to ask for permission to ask, or to find out if anyone is willing to answer the question.
  2. Make sure you have time to wait for an answer(10 minutes is a bare minimum). If you don't get an answer, it's likely people don't know, are in the middle of writing one or didn't notice your question.
  3. Try to be concise with your question.
  4. Even if you see a lot of people listed on the channel, this doesn't mean that they are actually present.
  5. When sending reports on tekst please use an Pastebin service like pastebin.com


How to Register a User Name

0. Choose a user name or nick.

The user name should consist only of the letters from A-Z, the numbers from 0-9 and certain symbols such as "_" and "-". It may have a maximum of 16 characters. To do so, enter the following command into the text field, where you would normally enter comments:

/nick [your nickname]

Trolling

IRC is a very know chat protocol frequently used by trolls, if you encounter a troll please notice a moderator. In case the troll is sending you private messages, you can set +Rg on your nick, so only registered users can chat with you privately. If you wish to set this mode, it can be done with:

   /mode (yournick) +Rg
