• 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.

    Question Cannot wake from suspend

    Normally sudo kernelstub -a <option> to add kernel parameters. You should be able to delete kernelstub -d what you've done and then update initramfs. Reverting would be easily done with Timeshift, which I heartily recommend. if you're having trouble, you could try to boot into "old...

    Add "Downloads" folder to dash to dock

    I'm replying so you don't think you've been ignored. I have never used Dash-to-dock (or dash-to-panel), so I couldn't say with any certainty. However, I think some people do. Adding all these functions back to GNOME DE, that GNOME has intentionally removed is a bit counter productive. GNOME...

    Question Cannot wake from suspend

    If you have a UEFI installation, Pop uses systemd boot and kernelstub. Look at the README.md for uses cases, options and kernel parameters. Almost anything you can do with GRUB can be done with kernelstub, only it is simpler.

    Multi workspaces on multi monitors

    Hey, I remember this from the live chat. Unfortunately, GNOME doesn't operate like that and I don't know any extensions or work-arounds that make it happen. I'm no desktop environment expert by any stretch, but I think you may be looking at a window manager like i3wm to achieve that. It would...

    Question Constant Wifi problems

    Intel WiFi cards are the better option in most cases. Somethings you could try: Turn off "connectivity checking". When the problem happens, try restarting shell. Done with Alt + F2, then r and enter. I was having the odd drop out, and I inadvertently had an improvement after installing a...

    Some things you should know about Zoom, if you value privacy.

    This article from the intercept was created to help anyone who is intending to leak Zoom video. However, what it exposes can only be described as proprietary spyware. Unless you purposely opt out of functions, and change a lot of things, a truck load of your personal data is being embedded in...

    Text in my Calendar is dark on dark background and I cannot read it

    I haven't used GNOME calendar in a long time, but I can reproduce what you have. I encourage you to make a "new issue" on Pop's GTK theme repo. https://github.com/pop-os/gtk-theme/issues. There will be a template to follow, and just add your screenshot.

    The importance of open source

    Google is now targeting Chromium based browsers that they say have "abused" the system. Many of your popular browsers will no longer sync with your Google Chrome sync services. Maybe they have a vaild point, or maybe it is a dirty trick they long-played to get people using Chrome again - who...

    Autocompletion failed on eclipse

    Flatpak integration in Pop-Shop, or CLI for that matter, is only pulling the package from Flathub. So if the recent .deb works fine and the Flatpak doesn't, then I would assume the Flatpak hasn't been updated by Eclipse. You might consider bringing to their attention...

    Question Solved PoP!_OS 20.10 updates in shop

    If you want to include Flatpak, it would look something like this; sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y && flatpak update -y && reboot Some people like to use the -y flag to make it more automated, but I normally leave it off so I can see what packages are going to upgraded. Maybe there is a...
