  • 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,

    Question Hard drive recognised as removable drive?

    You need to define a mount point for it. GNOME Disks will let you configure mount options for partitions.

    I can't flash a Pop!_OS LiveUSB in Windows

    Windows may not be reading the ISO file system correctly, so it reports that the ISO is smaller than it actually is.

    I can't flash a Pop!_OS LiveUSB in Windows

    You've verified that the flashed device is not capable of booting?

    Installer showing incorrect ssd size (128 gb vs 1tb) and partitions size (8 times smaller)

    The physical size doesn't matter. It's the logical size reported by the kernel which breaks things if it is not 512.

    Installer showing incorrect ssd size (128 gb vs 1tb) and partitions size (8 times smaller)

    Most SSDs and HDDs today still have 512 byte sector sizes. There is no workaround.

    Installer showing incorrect ssd size (128 gb vs 1tb) and partitions size (8 times smaller)

    The installer doesn't currently handle disks that aren't the standard 512-byte sector size

    The Pop!_OS Roadmap has been updated.

    It's a GNOME extension, so there's no purging or installing. It will be installed by default, and you'll receive the extension on upgrade. There's no need for a classic mode, because the only difference will be a few keyboard shortcuts modified to accommodate the superior tiling features, and...

    Question Firefox bizarre behavior

    I use Firefox on many systems, and have not seen this behavior before. Could it be a certain extension that's installed?

    The Pop!_OS Roadmap has been updated.

    It will be released at some point before 20.04 is released; as it is a release requirement.

    The Pop!_OS Roadmap has been updated.

    It would have been nice if extensions were launched as isolated processes; using IPC to communicate to and from the shell. That would have allowed extensions to be written in any language, and handled in a concurrent / asynchronous way.

    The Pop!_OS Roadmap has been updated.

    I only wish that I didn't have to write all of this in JavaScript. ? There are so many limitations on the kinds of data structures and operations that I can do, which will make this a bit more difficult than it needs to be. I hope that GNOME will eventually support using WebAssembly in GJS...

    Running multiple Linux OS

    If you're installing multiple operating systems on a system, you're already well outside what the average user does, so you have to have the know how to do this. The same things happens with GRUB when it nukes the configurations you defined in the grub.cfg in another Linux distribution. All of...

    Running multiple Linux OS

    It doesn't "eat" GRUB. It simply sets systemd-boot as the default boot loader during install. I would recommend switching your other distributions to systemd-boot. You can define boot entries in `/boot/efi/loader/entries`. It's much easier to work with than having to maintain a GRUB config on...
