I am new to ubuntu touch and I'd like to have an user manual. But I don't find one.

Can you help me getting started with ubuntu touch?

There is some help in the Release Notes

You should be able to find help in applications by pressing F1 (you'll need an onscreen keyboard smiley)

Also, you should be able to use the desktop Ubuntu help, because as far as I know it might be the same in some areas - most likely the documentation for 12.04, or 13.10 - as Ubuntu Touch is still fairly new, I don't think their is much actual help or documentation for it.

(Sadly, I don't use touch - I am not brave enough to try installing it on anything)

You have the BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ububtu Edition manual, here's a link:

This question was asked in December 2013, before the BQ Aquaris E4.5 for Ubuntu was available so it is unlikely that the OP is talking about an Aquaris phone, it is most likely that the the OP is using a development version of Ubuntu Touch on a Nexus phone. – Michael Lindman Apr 1 '15 at 13:36
Even so as the BQ phone is the only Ubuntu phone and this comes top in the search results his answer is still very useful and appreciated. You'd have thought that they would have stuck the manual on the phone somewhere. – user99306 Apr 1 '15 at 17:00
