• 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 Beginner Bizarre screen artifacts on Brand-new RX580

    Are you not using mesa already? I thought about trying out mesa-git (daily version) over the one that comes by default in Pop!_OS in order to determine if the bug has possibly been fixed.

    Question Beginner Bizarre screen artifacts on Brand-new RX580

    Unfortunately if that's the case I believe it might be a hardware defect that just doesn't get provoked by Windows, or maybe some manufacturer specific bug (in this case Gigabyte) although I doubt it. You should also make sure that it's not the HDMI cable causing the issues. You might as well...

    Question Beginner Bizarre screen artifacts on Brand-new RX580

    Could you try running those games with the proton compatibility layer from Valve (steam play)? There is a slight possibility that the linux versions of those games have a defect.

    Unable to Activate SLI

    Considering how poorly Nvidia supports linux in general, it wouldn't surprise me that SLI isn't even supported properly on linux, have you done your research beforehand to make sure that they support SLI on linux?

    Operating system Identity

    I absolutely agree with @derpOmattic, Pop!_OS is one of the most iconic linux operating systems in the history of desktop linux-based operating systems in my opinion. I would love to see some basic customization options like dynamically switching between light/dark themes during the day and...

    Usability suggestion for pop-upgrade

    It's not a half upgraded state at all. The pop-upgrade only downloads all the debs to install after user does a Reboot, that's where all the installing and upgrading is done. If OS would reboot immidiately that would give user no freedom to finish working and save things that they were wokring...

    Question Screen tearing on NVIDIA.

    Back when I was using Nvidia force full composition pipeline would ruin performance too much for me. If you're running gnome desktop tearing in Gnome shell itself shouldn't be a thing. For firefox a fix is to enable webrender: 1) Enter about:config 2) Set these flags to true...

    Night light thingie ...

    If you have allowed your system to access your network location, sunset to sunrise option should be similar across both devices. If you haven't please check the permissions since maybe that is what is keeping the option from working properly.

    Question Beginner Configuring Built-in Sound Card

    Hey, sorry to hear about your troubles. What you're describing sounds like a kernel driver bug/issue that basically kernel loses the connection to your sound card. I had similar issues with my fingerprint sensor before it got fixed. Being reproducable across multiple distros also speaks in...
