• 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.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

    Returning to Debian

    As a matter of fact exist a lot of distros to satisfy any tastes. But when I moved to POP one year ago I was pretty upset with the Debian community and the lacking of initiative and ideas about the Debian future developments, hence I moved to POP because I own a S76 hardware, it seemed to be the...

    Returning to Debian

    After about one year using POP!_os my conclusion is that has been an unpleasant experience. Mostly depends by Gnome 3, other bigger part belong to Ubuntu itself, the part from System76 is inconsistent... Some stuff are done well other are arguable. What I learned from this experience is that I...

    Solved System76 Nvidia Driver Mess up

    Hi folks, after the last two NVIDIA updates the 970M of my Serval WS9 laptop is not anymore recognized from Blender (Ubuntu repo) as Cuda compatible but still working on the Blender.org binary which is quite unstable. I have not idea how to fix it, probably uninstalling the S76 Nvidia drivers...

    Question Meaning of the virtual consoles on POP???

    Hi there, can anyone explain the meaning of the virtual console on POP? Historically you have always had the virtual consoles from F1 to F6, with the X session on F7. On POP I have the X session on F2, I have also another GDM screen in F1 that brings into the default session (F2), and the...

    Solved Lock screen doesn't work - segfault issue

    You should thank the Gnome Team when decided to break API/ABI every 6 months... By the way I switched to this new resource monitor because the former I had filled up by syslog up to 11 GB, it was that extension the cause of my frequent freezing...

    Solved Lock screen doesn't work - segfault issue

    I already found the culprit, it is this extension: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/120/system-monitor/ This is the worst extensions system ever seen in Linux, is constantly a pain in the neck.

    Advanced [BUG] Ubuntu 20.04: INITRAMFS Script causes boot delay

    Ubuntu is bloated, horribly bloated, as a matter of fact Debian, which is mainly vanilla software, performs better than Ubuntu (Phoronix docet) most of the times. However the point is another, the majority of the distros adopt the philosophy "release when ready" while Canonical release because a...

    Advanced [BUG] Ubuntu 20.04: INITRAMFS Script causes boot delay

    I just found another reference and fixed the thread title. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/initramfs-tools/+bug/1873614 It is just ridiculous that a LTS has all these bugs, this is the reason why I don't stand Ubuntu as base distro... 👎

    Question How to read boot.log

    Hi folks, once you could open boot.log and read the very first boot console screen messages, I catch up a lot of failed service and I would like to understand what is happening, but now that file is a binary and and "journalctl -b" does not show the boot the way I want... Thanks in advance...
