• 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,

Posting Guidelines

Do not post full resolution screenshots directly to this thread! You're welcome to post full resolution screenshots, as long as they're posted as thumbnails. Please be courteous and remember that not everyone has great internet.

You're also welcome to use a third-party image host and simply link here, or use the "thumbnail for forums" option available through most image hosts.

If your screenshot includes wallpaper (or other imagery) that is not safe for work, do not just post it to this thread. Either wrap the image in spoiler tags or only post a link to your preferred image host. In either case, clearly mark it as not safe for work. Any posts which don't follow these guidelines will be removed without notice!

We highly recommend neofetch to display the WM/DE and system setup you are using in your screenshots. It is available in the repos and can be installed by running apt install neofetch from the terminal.

Looks like I'm kicking off with the first screenshot. Some of you may know I've been testing the new Pop-Shell extension, even though it is still a work in progress. This screen was totally created using Pop-Shell via the keyboard, with the exception of logging into Planet. You can see the default 16 pixel gaps between windows, and the ability to leave as much desktop as you like (see the far left).
My Terminal background fields and window title bars are now shades of Black Russian, or #1B1B1D and #161617. Title bar colors were changed with this tool. It may not look like it initially, but It is a stock Pop light theme as evidenced by Settings and Chromium.
For those interested I'd be happy to share my Vim, Alacritty and Zsh theme (Pure) colors.

Very nice! I'm looking forward to Pop Shell once it's done. I would be interested in the Vim color scheme. Been trying to find a Pop inspired theme for a while.

Be careful of what? UHD 630 Graphics are perfectly capable of running a 4K OLED like mine—zero difference to the iGPU in the i7 or i9 CPU options. And there’s the Nvidia GeForce 1650 for demanding graphics needs, like moderate games.

Been fighting a losing battle with procrastination these past couple of days. On the plus side, I had to install the imagemagick suite so that a script I'm using to augment the status bar in my perfectly configured install of sxiv could call the indentify function, and it turns out that I can now use mogrify to quickly resize the attached screenshot so that the site will actually accept the upload ;-)

EDIT: Added screenshot of said sxiv setup. It open images full screen and without the bar visible by default (at least that's how I've got rifle launching it from ranger). I thought Pop users would get a kick out of the colour scheme: #94EBEB & #303030 :p

Wow Adam, that's a nice desktop and terminal colors. Very Gruvbox-esque, but tweaked around for a little vibrancy. Definitely usable and good looking. Many desktops on /r/unixporn and other places look Ok, but I wouldn't want to actually use them for any length of time. I think you nailed a good balance.

Thanks, that's kind of you to say! I have to admit that the subtle boosts in vibrancy are largely a happy accident - the theming on the utilities seemed to 'stack' with that of the terminal emulator. I haven't spent that much time in the terminal since setting it up this way, but so far my eyes haven't taken to it 100%. Might try increasing contrast or going with something designed more explicitly around usability, like Solarized. Or, crazy as it sounds, default settings :-D

I'm completely obsessed with functionality, usability and practicality. My current scheme is easy on the eyes over long periods in terminal. Here's the values from my ~/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml. Maybe they're kinder to you.

Code:
# If `true`, bold text is drawn using the bright color variants.
draw_bold_text_with_bright_colors: false

colors:
  # Default colors
  primary:
    background: '0x161617'
    foreground: '0xe9e9e5'

  # Normal colors
  normal:
    black: '0x292929'
    red: '0xA32C00'
    green: '0x81bf23'
    yellow: '0xc4a000'
    blue: '0x63a4bc'
    magenta: '0xbe7bbc'
    cyan: '0x97eaea'
    white: '0xe3e5e1'

Thank you! I'll definitely give these a go. I've restricted myself to only the most necessary of maintainence on my machine until the end of the month, though. I have deadlines to meet and this kind of tinkering and finessing is an extremely effective procrastination technique in my hands

This is a screen of my test machine. I usually run it in dark mode so I have some experience with it, even though I like light mode on my main machine. I played with pop-shell colors and transparency to suit the wallpaper, which is more vibrant than it appears due to the almost transparent Alacritty windows on top. I tried to make a desktop that showcased some Pop-Shell features and different modes - Auto tiling on the left and Stacking to the right. The top panel has transparency to help blend the colors.
