Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • 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 Wifi not working

Hello all, made the recent switch to pop os, it's been about 2 months, no problems up till now. Recently I decided to swap out my single band wifi card for a dual band wifi card (Intel AX200). It seemed to work at first, but recently I've been unable to connect to any wifi. I've been trying to search for a fix but unable to do so for days. Help would be greatly appreciated. Error messages are the same for whatever wifi network I try to connect to. Not sure if its part of the problem but I'm dual booting Windows10 and pop os and recently swapped back to win10 to transfer some files after not using it for months.

There was a recent issue with the Intel WiFi 6 Cards, I wonder if Linux is having the same issue as windows.

I’ve been unable to connect to wifi on Windows as well so that might be it. Do you have more information on the issue? This is the first I’ve heard of it.

I only know because I work as WiFi Provider and we had to tell students to upgrade their Driver (if they were running windows) looks like for linux disabling the power save feature helps out.
Doesn’t seem to work for me sadly, the script just failed to run, journalctl just says script fails to run and return with error status 1.
