I know that this is Ubuntu but it is debian based and I'm not really using Ubuntu. Where can I go for general debian questions? Thanks.
Questions about other linux systems go to https://unix.stackexchange.com/
Questions that you should avoid:
Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Backtrack, Gnome-Remix (prior to 13.04) and other Linux distributions (try our friends at Unix & Linux Stack Exchange).
Aside from U&L, there is an ongoing proposal on Area51 for a separate Debian Stack Exchange. It is still in the definition stage, so go on and show your support: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/62467/debian
