  • 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,

I've tried some of the gdm related suggestions ie cp xml cfg to gdm resources , disable/enable wayland to no avail.
Any help much appreciated...

Thanks, I'm on it. I have tried to at least in the short term to manage systems issues without straying to far afield from Pop!_OS. Being a consummate distro-hopper and especially tiling manager (i3 , regolith, etc) centric , Pop!_OS looks very promising.
Again thanks
