• 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.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

    If I try to install any of 5.8.* new kernels, an error shows up: "ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-5.8.*-generic is not supported".

    If I try to install any of these new kernels, an error shows up: "ERROR (dkms apport): kernel package linux-headers-5.8.*-generic is not supported". I have this problem with ALL the 5.8.* versions, and I can't use Virtualbox with these versions of kernels. How could I fix?

    Question With Linux Kernel 5 I've lost my Wayland session

    With 18.10 (Intel) I had been very happily using Wayland for a buttery smooth Gnome experience. I did a `do-release-upgrade` to 19.04, but I regret it. Mainly because I lost the ability to log in to a Wayland session. There is no "cog" on the user login screen. I suspect that this happened...
