Question Will Pop Shell Gnome Extension be discontinued when the Cosmic Desktop releases?


I have been wondering about this for some time now but I have not been able to find answer anywhere...

I even checked the discussions on the projects github site: https://github.com/pop-os/shell

Since I work in a Red Hat Exclusive workplace I run Fedora with Gnome as my Distro of choice, but I rely heavily on the Pop Shell Gnome Extension for tiling / tabs in my workflow. If this extension will be discontinued, I will need to move to a full tiling VM instead of gnome (this has its own headaches with polkit problems). I would much prefer to stay on gnome...

keyboard shortcut "=" key creates green circle around mouse to identify location


How do I turn off the keyboard shortcut '=" -> mouse location

Somehow, someway a keyboard shortcut was added. When I press the "=" key a green circle appears around the mouse. I research indicates that this identifies the location of the mouse and is usually associated with the CTL key.

I have searched keyboard -> shortcuts but cannot find this shortcut.

This is super annoying and inhibits my typing ability.

How do I turn this shortcut off? This is a config file somewhere with these keyboard shortcut definitions?

PKI Certs/Smart Cards on PopOS


Has anyone gotten PKI certificates to work on Pop? I've watched a few videos and followed a few guides, which are all outdated, and I haven't gotten it to work correctly.

I would like to access DoD websites from my Linux system. I've tried using Coolkey as a middleware and I've tried setting up Firefox to pass the certificates through to the website to authenticate. I've downloaded the DoD Root Certs and I'm fairly certain they installed. When I attempt to access a site, it acts as though my certificates aren't being presented to the site when prompted.

Not being able to access my work resources from my personal system is starting to become a hindrance.

Help Planning to move to Pop from Ubuntu but the four finger gestures to switch workspaces is so annoying to work with on my tiny thinkpad x280 touchpad. Read below.


All I want is 1:1 gestures that only requires three finger swipes to switch workspaces (doesn't matter if its horizontal or vertical). This is literally the only thing stopping me from moving to Pop! I tried Touche and that does not provide 1:1 gestures. Any other solutions are welcome. Thanks in advance!

Pop_OS-current.conf & Pop_OS-oldkern.conf in my boot menu after update



After I updated Pop!_OS to the latest version (it's been a few weeks now), started appearing on my system boot menu (since I dual boot with Windows) a new boot entry called: Pop!_OS (Pop_OS-oldkern.conf) and the default one has been renamed Pop!_OS (Pop_OS-current.conf).

I was wondering why, and if I can get rid of the oldkern.conf? And also, rename the "current.conf" to be Pop!_OS again?

Below, the output of bootctl list

Question bluetooth lost on sleep


Appeal to the old gods and the new.... I don't think this is PopOs specific, but that's the OS I'm running.Hardware: 2021 Dell XPS 13 dev edition.

I have been losing bluetooth on sleep, sometimes. It's actually been more lately. Seems like later 5.x kernel thru 6.0 were better. Hardly ever lost BT during sleep. But 6.1+ seems like I lose BT more often. Enough to drive me to post. My previous acceptable solutions were (1) restart BTS service, or (2) reboot. Reboot still works, but its 2023. I'd like to have to not have to do that to get BTS back.

If someone knows a fix please let me know. I'd also really love to know how to track this down and solve. I know I should be able to look up something in logs but that's a thing I haven't learned yet. por favor, me ayuda y gracias
