  • 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.

Hey Guy's,
So I see that PopOS doesn't come with JAVA preinstalled. Great! I have a fresh install and I am setting up my machine for gaming. What version of Java is being required today? My old Manjaro system required JRE8. However, I am seeing that it is no longer supported. So, what now? You assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks..

What you should install is default-jre.

sudo apt install default-jre
Really??? No, specific version with a tweak here or there. No hoops to jump through. Should I hit enter while upside down and looking backwards? This seems way to easy. Manjaro was not this easy....;)
