• 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.

  • Happy New Year!

    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,

    Sorry to come back again on that topic but I would like to understand something. I don't know when you started using Linux but, for my experience, the combination of Gnome 2.36 + Compiz + beryl was the peak of the desktop experience, then Gnome3 that I consider the failure of desktop experience...

    Beginner GNOME Shell desktop workflow explained.

    I don't believe I will address those issues with them. There are some technical choice of POP!_Os that I really dislike and I do not consider Ubuntu a good base for anything. However I needed a change and I went with the OS "designed" for my laptop. Unfortunately I don't see, for me, any way to...

    Beginner GNOME Shell desktop workflow explained.

    I know that you would do something useful but if you reflect a bit, Gnome 3 had deliberately and intentionally cut off all the ones who need to use an approach point and click, and System76 is following the same insane approach. And from a marketing and customer service point of view that is...

    The Pop!_OS Roadmap has been updated.

    Well you decided to adopt Gnome 3, made by the least collaborative team out there... You could re-base POP on KUBUNTU, and make it similar to Gnome3. KDE is so flexible that you can even replicate the same behavior of Unity... Plus you would have all the benefits of full and complete DE, like...

    The Pop!_OS Roadmap has been updated.

    Pop_shell is pretty interesting... While I am not really a fan of Gnome 3 in whatever salsa, If they would dare to implement the same concept as this very old Tiling Windows Manager would be fantastic. Standard desktops (not default Gnome 3) tend to mess up a lot while pure tilings are too...

    Hello Pop OS Users and Developers! :)

    For the Office suite you can avoid OpenOffice for LibreOffice. However if your previous workflow was heavily based on M$ Office you can take a look at Only Office, which is still an open source project based on mono but focused on compatibility toward M$ documents.

    Pop!_OS on MacBook Pro install

    Eventually you get a bad experience trying to install Linux on Mac, if you want use Linux on a Mac you had better to install macports so you can have a lot of GNU applications, like Imagemagick or ffmpeg. You can also use a VM, just to experiment, but the best option is selling your Mac and buy...

    Question Intermediate Latest update offered to install GRUB - why ?

    Grub works with UEFI as well, hence I would uninstall GRUB and reinstall systemd-boot. However I saw a lot of weird thing with the updates, like kernels that were updated and then downgraded... Kernel modules that are constantly rebuild, never seen anything like that in ten years of Debian...
