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,

    Error to install / uninstall any app...

    I came back to let you know or whoever will install Piper, that the software gave me some headaches. Although i did not save any profile, i found 3 of them after i reinstalled it. Why I reinstalled it, you might ask.. I did a 'fresh' install of Pop and after a week or so, someone(🐙 🦗🦠🦟🐜🐞 ?? )...

    Pop!_OS 20.10 is officially released!

    Great! I wonder what Pop has prepared for us :unsure:, because on the other side...uMbuntu's...is some sort of turbulent flow. And I will bound this with another news regarding 'the reasoning' of the why the lead dev of Arch Menu left, he said...GNOME's shifting sands. The day is creappy...

    Question Screen tearing while watching videos full screen on exterenal monitor on Oryx Pro (ORYP3)

    Yeap, it is exactly that. Just because you're an upgrade sucker, that doesen't mean screen tearing will just vanish.. You will face it.. for sure, when you will 'test that thing called LIFE ' again. I am a kid'o...or I just act like one...but I don't have any tearing or laggy videos.. old man. 📌

    PubKey Problems in Spotify Update

    Yes it can, but Pop!_Os and it's users don't like to be bound to the corporate machine. You are free to do what to you like. In the near future a lot of ubuntu based distros will turn to debian, because of snaps.

    Question Beginner INTERNAL Microphone Not Working

    Well is not about fixing... @derpOmattic suggested to try an older version of Pop, prior to 19.10.. meaning 18.04 But if you think, by installing on your 20.04 an 'default' 19.10 kernel, will solve the issue.. go ahead ! Your 'success' will tell a lot about this release of 20.04.. at least for...

    Thinkpad [x1e gen 2] bars appearing on screen

    His problem has nothing to do with BIOS nor with operation system. It's a panel issue. By turning brightness and/or contrast, up and down he's just increase or decrease the effect. He said is only at the bottom, that leads to a presumed manufacturing defect. 'His' backlight bleed dosen't look...

    Cannot boot into log-in screen; can't refresh the install, either.

    Those are not solutions. I just pointed out a few things which could cause that failed install of yours. You may also check the hdd/ssd especially if is new. Did you had any other OSes installed on ? So.. if you have hardware("LTS failed, possibly due to a hardware error.") eliminated from the...

    Cannot boot into log-in screen; can't refresh the install, either.

    If other upcoming solutions will not help, consider a failed install or a bad "installer" and think until the iso file itself. If the issus lies somewhere at the hardware level: - change USB port - put the hdd/ssd in another case

    Font size too small.. need help!!!

    Go to settings -> universal access -> hit Large Text button. If that is not big enought, install GNOME Tweaks from Pop!_Shop, under Fonts you have another set of settings as well as Scaling Factor at the bottom

    I tried to create the bootable drive and Pop! ruined two thumb drives

    He is right about something.. The first downloaded iso file of 20.04 was kind of 'corrupted'.. didn't get any prompt in that regard but it was a failed install(256 checked) on bare metal. The sha256sum dosen't quarantees a 'healthy' install. Ok? my opinion.. It didn't destroyed the thumb drive...
