• 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.

  • Happy New Year!

    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 wanted to try out Pop OS or Linux in general for a little while so instead of dualbooting, beacuse I just don't have another drive or want to partition the current one I decided that I would just try it on a virtual machine. Default res is something 4:3 and when I go fullscreen on antoher distro (DeepinOS) it autmatically scales. Here it didn't. Went to the settings but the regular aspect ratio of my display wasn't showing up. Also tried with the terminal. No succes. Can I get some help?

Update: forgot to install VMware tool, those might help. Now I have another prob: to install those I need to use terminal as root but I don't know the default root password. (Am I saying somethin dumb?) Where do I find it?

Virtualization is always tricky to deal with in terms of video... I'd also strongly recommend VirtualBox over VMWare (the VirtualBox Guest Additions ISO that's installed with it fixes 99% of the simple video issues you'll run into).

Thansk, I'll try installing the VMware tools and if the problems persists I will try to switch
