  • 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,

Running pop 20.10. Whenever I open pop_shop it immediately goes to the installed tab and begins checking for updates. is there a way to have it open to the home page by default? And is there a way to stop it from checking for updates everytime I open the app? it really bogs it down and I basically can't do anything until it's done checking for updates.

I rarely use Pop-Shop, preferring to work with the package manager directly. pop-Shop is basically a front-end for apt. Whenever I launch it, it opens at the Home tab, so that must be changeable. I'm not sure how just yet. I will look into it.

the auto updating is handled through policy kit, so it's a different issue. Let me see if I can hunt that down too. Like I said, I don't use it much at all. It seems I open it mainly to answer questions about it. :)

Thanks, it does seem to be opening to the home page now. idk why lol. But I would LOVE to disable the autoupdating. It's currently locked up (a common occurrance) because I dared to enter 3 letters into the search bar while it was trying to search for updates.
