• 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,

Hello

I had to restore PopOs 20.04 on my dual boot machine ; I choose to keep the user data ; the wizard told me to create a new user which I did ; it completed the installation and I could boot again to Popos ; but in the login screen I only see the new user and not the previous one I had ; If I choose not listed and enter the credential Im able to log in to that specific user.
How I can add to the login menu that user ?

thanks

I'm experiencing some crashes as you can see there.... I'm a bit new to linux its there a way to pull the logs of those crashes to see if it can be fixed ; it happens very randomly ...
Already did memtest just to be sure I didnt had memory issues given that I dont have this problem on window its probably a driver issue

That's why I was asking about flags... the only way I know of HIDING an account is if it's either flagged as disabled or a system account. I'm wondering if in the migration process it somehow got flagged.
