• 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.

    Thank you for your time,

    Now accepting donations through things that aren't PayPal!

    Well, I finally got enough prodding that I added a non-PayPal donation option to the site. If you've always wanted to donate but don't use PayPal, or just want to get things out of their grubby little hands, feel free to choose the new Credit Card payment method on the donation form. It's not a...

    Appreciation post

    Always nice to get a bit of appreciation. I never really considered where people would put such posts (frankly, we haven't gotten enough to be worth a dedicated location), so this will do fine!

    No login screen anymore after locale changes and pam errors

    Mount the local drive, you'll be able to pull whatever info is needed from it. I'd start with taking a look at /var/log/syslog and /var/log/dmesg

    No login screen anymore after locale changes and pam errors

    I can't make any promises, especially without further info, but I'm happy to help if I can! First step would be booting from a live image (the Pop install image will work fine, just quit the installer) and seeing if we can get some log data. Knowing what went wrong would be infinitely easier...

    The future of Pop!_Planet - User Poll

    Appreciated! I have many of the same concerns, hence asking the community for feedback before making any drastic changes.

    The future of Pop!_Planet - User Poll

    I can't, at least not without more info. As previously said, we don't explicitly blacklist anything that doesn't trip our IP blacklisting system.

    The future of Pop!_Planet - User Poll

    This is probably the case. We don't block based on anything other than abuse... meaning the only things that shouldn't actually work are things that have been explicitly flagged by the system for abuse. It's possible, however, that your VPN provider assigned you an IP that has been abused by...

    The future of Pop!_Planet - User Poll

    This site will never have ads, that's a promise. I hate ads too, and would rather make less money honestly, than more money by putting ads on the site. And while I do use parallax in some of my sites, it doesn't really make sense for this design... so that'll never happen. Planet was always...

    The future of Pop!_Planet - User Poll

    Assume I'm not going to ever "hide" things. That's not what we're about... remember, a big part of this is about making things easier and more open.

    The future of Pop!_Planet - User Poll

    Recently, I've made some decisions regarding the future of my actual business. One of these decisions impacts Pop!_Planet in a not-insignificant way. As of January first, we're moving to implement a company-wide standard intended to increase the stability and security of our sites, as well as...

    Pop os issues with Ethernet on Lenovo T460

    Lol! My next question was going to be regarding the "continued by the community" comment ;)

    Pop os issues with Ethernet on Lenovo T460

    Can we take a quick step backwards? @kingblind can you post the output of `lspci | grep -i net` for me? It's not that I doubt you... just want specifics.

    Add user from previous install to login menu

    That's why I was asking about flags... the only way I know of HIDING an account is if it's either flagged as disabled or a system account. I'm wondering if in the migration process it somehow got flagged.

    One problem at a time, open the crash issue as a separate thread so we can track it better, please.

    Question Beginner On resume applications that use HTML canvas elements appear as white boxes.

    I'll be honest... I've never seen that happen, and I use (and develop for) VSCode extensively. I'll look into it though!

    Pop Shop app suggestions

    I know Jason, his endorsement is definitely a good sign! I've used Bashtop before, but not Core Control. If @mmstick and the S76 team doesn't want to officially support those two, I'll review them for inclusion in the Community Repo.

    Question Beginner Can't re-install Pop! OS

    That's definitely interesting... out of curiosity, what model DVD and motherboard do you have?

    Add user from previous install to login menu

    Ok. Well at this point, you've created the account... if you log in what flags does the account have, if any?

    Question Beginner Can't re-install Pop! OS

    Excellent feedback! And spot on. While it's possible for a hard drive to report as unknown without failing (such as a drive that doesn't support SMART, though that's fairly rare these days, particularly with SSDs), the failure to report could VERY WELL indicate a failure or pending failure.

    Question Beginner Can't re-install Pop! OS

    That's odd... and thanks for your patience. Is SMART flagging them in any way?
