  • 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,

    Question mouse button 8 and 9 consistently fire twice

    Hi there, I'm testing Pop_OS 20.04 in a Hyper-V VM and have noticed that the side-buttons (forward/back) on my mouse consistently fire twice on a single click, causing e.g. Firefox to go back/forward by two pages instead of one. I checked with xinput test and can see that with each click, I...

    Alienware touchpad performs strangely after installing pop!_os

    So after i installed pop!_os onto my old alienware 13 i noticed the touchpad would constantly be clicking things whenever i just moved the mouse and the touchpad would also freeze the computer. USB mice work perfectly fine, it's just the touchpad. Does anyone know how to solve this issue?
