  • 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 everyone,

My fresh Pop_OS install works fine except; linux-only games on Steam are freezing; could anyone help me? I think there might be a chance of that my laptop uses intel GPU instead of NVidia. I can't see any other reason for it. I checked online and found this command, I hope it helps for more information:

lspci -knn | grep -A3 -i -E "VGA|3D"
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0416] (rev 06)
        Subsystem: Pegatron 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [1b0a:2109]
        Kernel driver in use: i915
        Kernel modules: i915
01:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GM108M [GeForce 940M] [10de:1347] (rev a2)
        Subsystem: Pegatron GM108M [GeForce 940M] [1b0a:2109]
        Kernel driver in use: nvidia
        Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
Do you see anything wrong here? And I read that Vulkan support is important, is that right? If it is, how can I check if I have it or not?

Please help :)
Thank you.
