• 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.

  • Happy New Year!

    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.

    I can't flash a Pop!_OS LiveUSB in Windows

    I see this all the time, I am pretty sure that Windows just hides the ISO9660 partition, so it doesn't show up at all. I just looked at a USB drive that was written with Pop!_OS 19.10 Intel ISO; it shows the first partition as ISO9660 2.2GB, second partition is EFI 4.2MB and third is Ext4 13GB...

    video card upgrade

    Usually the CPU will not cause a GPU to work. It has more to do with the chip-set on the motherboard that will prevent a GPU from working properly. The GPU should work, it might not be able to output the full performance of the GPU do to the CPU speed/cores and the PCIe bus speed (maybe 90% of...

    Help us name our next product!

    Would something like "Web Managed Package Platform" or "WMPP" work as a name for this?

    Question Darktable still not 3.0?!?

    I am hoping that when Pop!_Shop ships with flatpak support, having out-dated tools and other applications will be minimized. I personally install SNAPd and flatpaks already, but it is always nice to see integration for app repos.

    Accessing data partition on encrypted drive from another PC via usb?

    Hello MostHated, If I remember correctly, when you try to access the LUKS (encrypted partition) from GNOME files (file manager) on another PC running Linux/GNOME 3, it should ask you for the encrypted passphrase of the drive. Once the passphrase is entered correctly, it will mount the partition...

    Question Intermediate AMD graphichs - which to choose ?

    I haven't had any issues with my RX 580 using a eGPU enclosure. The RX 5xx series seem to do very well on Linux.

    Question Beginner Pop OS 19.04 installer not showing my hard drive

    I noticed that the partition is MBR. Are you booting via UEFI or legacy mode? I would think legacy mode, at which point doesn't Pop!_OS not use /boot/efi and installs grub instead of kernelstub?

    Hey! I am having trouble installing Pop OS 19.04, I'm a newb, and would like some help

    That makes me wonder if there is a BIOS update that would fix the issue, it sounds like the software is doing something the hardware doesn't expect normally.

    Hey! I am having trouble installing Pop OS 19.04, I'm a newb, and would like some help

    Just curious, try with the Intel/AMD ISO. It shouldn't hurt anything, as it is only missing the nVidia driver and if it does install, you can just install the drivers after that. Try using the LTS version if you haven't already. Not that I expect it to act differently, but if it does then maybe...

    Question Running out of space on boot drive

    To answer question 1, mounting is like creating a shortcut so to speak. It tells the OS to look over at this other location for the data and paths instead of the root filesystem. It does not create a copy of the data. You can even hide the original contents and make that inaccessible by mounting...

    Good day, peeps!

    I am looking forward to the day System76 can start manufacturing their own laptops, but I am sure that is a long way off. I wonder if Clevo will make an Intel/Radeon laptop at some point in the future, as that would be another system I would potentially want if I can't get a full AMD laptop. I...

    ElementaryOS "Onboarding" in Pop!_Os

    I like the feature and as long as it is easily dismissed by veterans if they so choose, I am all for it.

    Question Solved Docker

    So it looks like the Docker team has finally added the binaries for disco. Docker-ce and docker-ce-cli in https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/dists/disco/pool/stable/amd64/ Although I think I will be sticking with the LTS repositories in the future, as they just seem to work.

    Question Solved Steam library on another hard drive

    The way I do it is move the "~/.steam" and "~/Steam" to where ever you want on the external hard drive, then create symbolic links to them. You can create symbolic links with the terminal command ln. Example, username=USER and the external drive partition is named games: ln -s...

    Any way of signing for Secure Boot?

    If the system isn't going to use the Microsoft signed shim, I still think it would be nice if the system was signed by System76 and be able to add their keys to the trusted boot list. There are many problems and security concerns with UEFI in general and I personally wonder how well Secure Boot...

    Feral Interactive's GameMode integration into Pop!_OS.

    If it does prove really useful and there are other "essential" utilities/apps for gaming, maybe the best route would be to offer all those packages in the store and then bundle them all together as a meta package. I know the point of GameMode is to change the power state of the machine to...

    How to assign (and keep) default output device. If not, any example script on changing the current output device I can run on boot?

    I had the same issue and even running the pavcontrol program and setting the default seems to be ignored. I ended up unplugging my PS4 dongle (supported the headset, I haven't used it in a while) and disabling the audio controller on my Alienware Alpha to get it to default to the HDMI.

    Feral Interactive's GameMode integration into Pop!_OS.

    To make it even easier for gaming on Pop!_OS, may I make the suggestion of including GameMode (https://github.com/FeralInteractive/gamemode) by default, just like the Vulkan drivers are installed. It seems there is a patch for GameMode to expose registed games on the bus...
