  • 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,

[SOLVED] pop-default-settings error: lsb_release not found


Dec 10, 2019

I recently updated to Pop!_OS 21.04 and I have some package dependencies errors with libboost. In order to fix them, I ran the following command with apt-get:

$ sudo apt-get install -f                                                                                                              josephhenry@pop-os

Setting up pop-default-settings (5.0.0~1624981545~21.04~38927e0) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/pop-default-settings.postinst: line 72: lsb_release: command not found
dpkg: error processing package pop-default-settings (--configure):
installed pop-default-settings package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
The issue is that the post install script uses the lsb_release command which is not present on my system (I wonder why because it used to work in previous pop versions). I can't install it because using apt again will show me the same dependencies errors.

I submitted the issue on the default-settings repository on GitHub: https://github.com/pop-os/default-settings/issues/117 (not sure if it was the right place thought ;))

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Never mind I fixed it because I did not remember I modified the lsb_release file and made a backup of it. The shebang was not correct so I put #!/usr/bin/python3 -Es to be python3 compatible and it fixed it!
