  • 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.

Question Intermediate Need help with flatpak storage


New member
Sep 17, 2020
I recently installed Pop_OS, and have run into an issue where my flatpak has completely run out of space but I still have tons of space outside the home folder. I was just wondering if someone could tell me how to maybe move flatpak without messing anything up or should I try and reallocate space to the home folder. I would really prefer not to break my install. I know it's a storage issue because I can see on my disk management software the folder is full and I understand computers enough to know that as well as the Terminal tells me so when I try to install anything via the terminal with flatpaks.

or should I try and reallocate space to the home folder
I don't think you can do that, you can reallocate space only(don't quote me on that) to a partition. Joe Collins is kind of average to expert when it comes to that. If you want to contact him try on EzeeTalk / Fakebook.$$$ 😚
I saw that also in Mate, but here in Pop_os/Gnome is a bit bigger. Maybe if you create a separate /home partition and /like 20Gb you will be good but, that means you have to reinstall it.

Good luck!
