• 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.

    Optimize your pop! packages with the power of apt-build

    What is apt-build? 🤔 If you are planning to install Pop! on a machine with limited resources or simply want a little extra-juice from your computer you might want to use apt-build. apt build is a small program written in Perl and C that gets any package's source files and compiles them for your...

    Operating system Identity

    On some points I agree that Pop! OS is a great distro and the effort the System76 team is putting onto it is great. However is the only distribution I know that feels funny when trying to give it a "haircut" , specially for advanced users where compiling packages yourself or removing things...

    Default Wayland ISO.

    Wayland would be a good option. The only thing against it is the annoying argument of "Wayland is compatible, apps are incompatible with wayland".

    Can't help but imagine the controllers. If finger oil wasn't enough, chicken oil might do the trick.

    The future of Pop!_Planet - User Poll

    The site is almost perfect as it is. And things are easy to find, ask and answer. :) The only thing this needs is more community interaction. I've seen that a lot of the main pop repo issues could be asked here instead 🤔 maybe there is something we users can do to help on that matter.

    Problems installing some deb packages

    Conducting a very small research on my laptop I see that TLP and System76 power only conflict in VERY few things (2 or 3 mostly), still it might be safe to just use one. If you plan to stick with system76 power it might help as well. I don't know the specs of the Lemur thingy but if you make...

    Problems installing some deb packages

    I don't have a hybrid or NVIDIA setup 🤔 maybe that's why I don't know what might be conflicting between those two.

    Problems installing some deb packages

    This might be a silly advice but...have you tried installing tlp? I'm using a Huawei Matebook which supposedly has "up to 12 hrs" in battery life. It only lasted 1 or 2 hours max. But with tlp my battery life increased a lot.

    A friendlier way to switch Desktop Environments :)

    I wasn't wondering much about the spins really 😅 more like just installing a DE and "let GNOME go". I might write a tutorial since my investigation throws that to use budgie you don't need to do much, just fork pop-desktop and pop-default-settings and remove the GNOME deps and that's it. 🤔...

    That's a shame to hear :(

    Documents Directory dissapeared

    🤔 I spent some time researching but apparently there are no other users in both Pop! OS and *buntu that have lost their documents folder. Based on this I think this could have been deleted by accident.

    Documents Directory dissapeared

    The folder is indeed gone, It may be "hidden" or locked out if there is a problem with xdg-user-dirs but this seems unlikely. Have you done anything prior that might have tampered with your home/ dir? Like installing a third party program, interrumpting an update or similar?
