    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.

Is is possible to activate Freesync?

Linux gaming has improved a lot in the last couple of years, but I really miss Freesync.
Has anyone managed to activate freesync on Pop? Is that even possible?

xrandr -prop returns vrr_capable: 1 , so I think that means the system can seen the monitor as Freesync ready..

Following some obscure tutorial I created a file

Section "Device"
    Identifier "AMD"
    Driver "amdgpu"
    Option "DRI" "3"
    Option "VariableRefresh" "true"
I am not sure how to test it. As I have very few games at the moment (slow internet)
But in the main game I want to play with FreeSync , X4:Foundations, the screen starts to flicker as soon as I start the game (weird) and the option adaptive sync in the menu appears as grayed out.
