    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.

External monitor not detected after switching input


New member
Oct 3, 2020

I have a Thinkpad X1 Extreme connected to an external monitor (LG 34WN80C-B) via USB-C, and a separate laptop connected to the monitor using the HDMI port. Whenever I switch back from the HDMI connection to USB-C, Pop OS does not detected the external monitor as I get the message that there is no signal. Everything works fine if I unplug and plug in the USB-C cable from the Thinkpad, or turn off the monitor and turn it back on. It looks like Pop OS is not detecting the signal that the monitor is now available because the input method is switched.

I just installed the OS yesterday, and am running the latest version of nvidia driver.

Any help would be highly appreciated!
