  • 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,

Question Beginner Problemns with upgrade to 21.04

Today I upgraded to the 21.04 Cosmic version, but I faced some issues, first, the settings app wouldn't open, which I was able to solve by tipping this at the Terminal:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libpop_upgrade_gtk.so.1 /usr/lib/libpop_upgrade_gtk.so.0
Another issue was with the pop-boot, which doesn't seem to be correctly installed, when I try to install it ran to the following error:
Setting up pop-boot (3.1.4~1623173088~21.04~afe27ca) ...
