• 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. If you can't find what you're looking for here, check the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis.
  • 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,

    Hi all, I'm having troubles flashing the 19.10 Nvidia .ISO onto a usb stick. I've tried balenaEtcher and Rufus; each time the flashing process finishes I'm left with a USB that has a 4MB EFI partition and nothing else but empty space. Once this happens, the stick disappears from the file...

    Pop!_OS not installing? Check this first.

    The Pop!_OS installer is arguably one of the better Linux installers currently available. Despite how impressive Pop's installer is, it's challenging to build software that works flawlessly on every make and model of computer. Pop!_OS usually installs without issue, but occasionally there are...

    Solved Installation Boot Failure.

    One of my boxes has a weird quirk that is worth documenting. To all appearances, it's a boot failure that is remarkably similar to one involving Secure boot. In the last two to three years I’ve tested over 40 distros, some of which were installed multiple times when I fudged them up and...
