• 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. If you can't find what you're looking for here, check the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis.
  • 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,

    Guide Intermediate [19.04 - 20.04] [GTK2] Install a global audio equalizer using LADSPA; No building necessary!

    Yes. I never got around to this until now because Pop!_OS isn't something I use anymore and I sort of forgot about it., so it became low-priority for me selfish as it is. On the Arch User Repository there is a more current version of the software I wrote about above which is wholly compatible...

    Guide Beginner Making use of ExFAT

    Introduction / Synopsis Boy aren't I tired of Microsoft holding patents over ExFAT. But, paradoxically it's the format of choice for Android (at least with my LG H871) and Microsoft Windows doesn't allow FAT32 partitions on high-capacity SD cards. (Basically anything over 32GB.) ExFAT has many...

    Size of swap partition?

    You don't even need a swap partition. You can get away with having a swap file nowdays, and honestly if you're committing memory to a spinning hard disk then it really doesn't matter. However if you are doing something extra-crazy where you need to use flash storage as a RAM disk, or if you are...

    Guide Beginner Split pane page viewing with Vivaldi (because I like it a lot.)

    I just think it looks weird. I think the thumbnails are a bit on the small side, an option for something a little bit bigger would be nice. But that's some IMO stuff, feel free to have a play since it's your site and all.

    Guide Beginner Split pane page viewing with Vivaldi (because I like it a lot.)

    I am still so very new to this, so the thread is going to suck for a bit until I figure this system out. Until then, sorry! Edit: Yeah after some time replacing full images with thumbnails it still kinda sucks, but hey this is still relatively new. At least I made it less annoying to look at...

    Guide Intermediate [19.04 - 20.04] [GTK2] Install a global audio equalizer using LADSPA; No building necessary!

    Yeah after PulseEffects taking a crap on me so much I am going back to the previous solution I had. If you are experiencing the same issues, at the very least you have options. I might even updated the OP with this information.
