    Angry I somehow don't have grub

    (I tried this on kubuntu and pop_os where I am currently)
    I tried holding shift while restarting my pc already a thousand times, but NOTHING.
    And there was no grub file in etc/default/, well...until I accidentally created it. And it still didn't help because of the next thing.
    and apparently even the command sudo upgrade-grub doesn't exist, so I am very confused, my laptop is in a constant state of agony because of this and some stupid i915 drivers, so if I somehow don't fix this I will give up and go back to windows.

    Trying to understand pop_os (news to me) I read here
    https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comm...enu_on_pop_os/

    which says ..

    "It's important to be aware that Pop_OS! does not use Grub, ..."

    It also refers to rEFInd and since I use that (but in Ubuntu) to sit alongside Grub you could try installing that.

    Another article on pop_os found here ..

    Nor did I know that pop_os existed. I do endorse rEFInd. Good luck. Better than going back to Windows.

    hey, do you happen to know the refind alternative to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT? I just can't seem to be able to figure it out.
