• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

    Intermediate Issues with dpkg and dkms - dpkg returning error exit status 10

    You can try removing the packages and reinstall them. Using sudo apt-get purge <packages>. Then sudo apt install <packages>. (apt-get seems to do a more thorough job removing than apt only). I'd make a back up, just in case something goes wrong. After that I'd update initramfs, then try...

    Random blank screen when using external monitor

    The first thing to try when Pop glitches is a shell restart, done with alt + F2, then r and enter. However, you're saying a blank screen, so maybe try to login with a TTY. When the blank screen appears, try pressing alt + ctrl + F4. If you can login that way, it is possible to fix things, check...

    Question Beginner Intermediate Solved Lagging a lot after setup upgradation

    It is a decent work around if you have a single small screen or laptop, but it won't look good on your bigger monitor. You can try it though. It's easy enough to reverse if it isn't good.

    Question Beginner Intermediate Solved Lagging a lot after setup upgradation

    Yes. The purge and reinstall of the same driver has been fixing a lot of current NVIDIA bugs. I believe it has something to do with how it's packaged and the fact it becomes a mess. Reinstalling is easier.

    Question Beginner Intermediate Solved Lagging a lot after setup upgradation

    There's a trick you can try on your laptop. Select 200% scaling, but then increase all the font sizes. Doing so kind of forces the titlebars to be a little bigger, which gives it a reasonably normal appearance and functions great.

    Question Beginner Intermediate Solved Lagging a lot after setup upgradation

    There is currently some NVIDIA bugs that are effecting Linux in general. What NVIDIA drivers are you using? You might benefit from purging them and reinstalling. Check which ones first, but it's done like this: sudo apt purge ~nnvidia sudo apt install nvidia-driver-<number> Just thinking, that...

    Intermediate Issues with dpkg and dkms - dpkg returning error exit status 10

    Does your EFI have much room? If you have too many old kernels it can prevent updating packages like that.

    Intermediate Issues with dpkg and dkms - dpkg returning error exit status 10

    What do your apt sources look like? Navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list and look at the contents. They should all be pointing to Focal. List anything else in that directory.

    Intermediate Issues with dpkg and dkms - dpkg returning error exit status 10

    The first thing I would do is run sudo apt autoremove. Then I'd try sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade --fix-missing. if that works I'd update initramfs. sudo update-initramfs -u If --fix-missing doesn't work, you have more work to do. we're probably going to have to look at your apt...

    Did you have a look at this article? Is your drive MBR or GPT? Did you label the EFI for Pop as /boot/efi?
