    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.

    Thank you for your time,

Touchpad drivers messed up


Sep 21, 2020
Heyho, i was trying to get a more precise touchpad and used some codes on another website (https://howchoo.com/linux/the-perfect-almost-touchpad-settings-on-linux-2).

Well the website stated i shouldn't just copy-paste stuff all willy-nilly cause it might break stuff but i had to know it better. Now my touchpad isn't working anymore and i am not sure what to do :D
Can somebody help me out here? Or do i have to reinstall the whole system now?

If you're not sure how to "cherry pick" the broken stuff out, I'd recommend a "Refresh Install". A Refresh Install will re-install the OS, but leave your home folder intact. What that means is that you will get a new system, but your config files will still be there after you reinstall programs. It's a really handy feature of the Pop!_OS recovery system. Check out the details here - about half way down the page.
