• 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,

    Thanks @derpOmattic I can't really see any differences in this list. Not that I really know what I'm doing here, but this is the output of some things that I hope are relevant? ggstar@gaynors-pc:/etc/apt/sources.list.d$ cat pop-os-apps.sources X-Repolib-Name: Pop_OS Apps Enabled: yes Types...

    OS Upgrade: Failed to check for upgrade status

    MikhailT on this reddit post suggested running sudo pop-upgrade daemon which seems to solve the issue, until I reboot. How would I solve this properly?

    OS Upgrade: Failed to check for upgrade status

    After recently upgrading to 21.04 from 20.10, I noticed the "OS Upgrade & Recovery" section of the Settings menu looking like this: I have restarted several times, but there doesn't appear to be a clear way to get more info about fixing this. Anyone know where I would start, or even what's...

    Can't see virtual webcam (v4l2loopback) in Zoom anymore?

    Hi! I posted this question on unix.stackexchange but I just thought that maybe this is a much better place to ask! (Please bear with me, as I'm really new to Linux!) I'm a teacher, and it has become essential that I can teach via Zoom. For my classes, I really need multiple camera angles...

    Installing NVIDIA driver

    Hi, sorry I'm new here. (This is my first Linux Opperating system, so I'm not too familiar.) I've recently done the same as the OP in this thread. Installed Pop!_os 20.04 with intel graphics, then added an NVIDIA graphics card recently. I did use the following, before installing the card...
