You are of course not required to pay. If you did the devs will surely appreciate it though.
Your question gives almost no details on what problem you are facing. If you did not see the window with the links to download the torrent files, you can just go to https://elementary.io, enter $0 and click the "Download" button.
Firstly, thank you very much for supporting development by purchasing a copy of elementary OS. It's our primary source of income and the vast majority of people choose to never pay anything. So we really appreciate your initial payment.
If you ever need to re-download elementary OS, you can always click the "custom" button and type in "0". This will ...
It's a time-code that stops hotlinking. It's not tracked, although your button click is.
Hi there! I built both the system to generate those links and manage the delivery network that delivers the downloads, so I'm quite qualified to answer this, although Ravan has it mostly covered.
The elementary.io website is actually open-source in itself, and the code ...
elementary's primary source of income is from pay-what-you-want downloads. That accounts for something like 70% of monthly income. One-time PayPal payments and Patreon account for most other income and we make a small amount on retail sales (shirts and stickers).
Bountysource is its own thing. When people contribute to our account on Bountysource, it stays ...
There is no regional restriction for downloading elementary OS and you can download elementary OS for free by typing in $0 in the "custom amount" field, you don't need to donate every time (although it's greatly appreciated, thank you very much).
That being said, the download doesn't start for me either. I'd assume there are some technical problems with ...
This sounds like an issue with the Captive Portal Assistant. It's a tool installed by default to assist users in wifi networks with a separate login page (e.g. in a hotel). Most likely it (wrongfully) recognizes your connection as "captive network" and tries to assist you (which doesn't work of course, as there is no login page to show). After successful ...
There is a menu option in Pycharm to create a shortcut in the App Launcher.
1) Start PyCharm...
...like you mentioned above.
2) Once PyCharm is up and running, go to the Tools menu and select "Create Desktop Entry..." I think it also asks you if you want to create the desktop entry for all users.
Now the Pycharm program will be in ...
I can reproduce it! Seems to be a grid view bug.
But I don't have enough reputation to only comment. The closest bug I've found is this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/pantheon-files/+bug/1579270
-Click some file or folder(double Click mode)
-Try moving between files with Arrow keys
-They will start moving from first file and not from the selected file.
I have the same problem since few weeks ago, and it is due to this repository: http://ppa.launchpad.net/justsomedood/justsomeelementary. It looks like the repository has just disappeared. If you check the the launchpad's address http://ppa.launchpad.net/justsomedood/justsomeelementary/ubuntu/ you gonna find the message 404:

You can download uck from the repositories, it's a nice tool to customize iso's.
sudo apt-get install uck
Or you can do it manually.
I used this tutorial once, a bit long but it is great.
You could enter "0" on the homepage to start the download, and then visit
Get Involved to find another way to contribute. On that page, you can contribute via PayPal or Patreon, or by buying something from the store. You can also contribute to elementary via Bountysource.

In my case elementary OS was working fine until I install so many things including software update from app center, then I leave my laptop and when I came back the keyboard and mouse does not work.
I was logged in automatically and I can see the desktop with the mouse pointer, but I'm unable to move the mouse nor type anything on my keyboard (not even ...
Okay! After some heavy digging,
First, update Chrome (⋮ in upper-right corner > Help > About Google Chrome)—a fix has already been submitted but it did not fix all issues. Then subscribe to the bug report and report your issue so the devs know they can ask for your help testing a potential fix.
If the update doesn't fix it, try running Chrome with the ...
As @lemonslice said - the answer is to install the SDK package in a terminal window:
sudo apt install elementary-sdk
Did you get your app working? I'm just going through unanswered questions, and some of them are answered in comments, such as this.
It is necessary to know more information about your system, but I will tell you what worked in my case:
download the driver from the official website of amd. After that unzip and edit the files amdgpu-install and amdgpu-pro-install.
In line 90 change ubuntu by elementary and save the change.
If you do not do that, it will say OS not supported.
You can edit the default firefox.desktop file:
First open terminal and copy the original one:
cp /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
Now edit the copy ~/.local/share/applications/firefox.desktop with your favorite editor.
You need to adjust the line containing

If you pay from a credit card that belongs to your company, and not you personally, maybe it's enough. Talk to an accountant about it, maybe by paying with the company's credit card, even without VAT, you can deduct the expense. Or maybe the accountant can book it as a donation, which technically it is. (I can't give you a definitive answer, bookkeeping ...
I don't think they can migrate to a new IP that fast, but try calling them out on Twitter and/or filing an issue to their Github pages.
For the meantime, you can use a VPN (free VPN services will do since the updates probably won't take up more than 500MB) to fetch updates. Hope this helps.
This is likely a duplicate of a duplicate. It's related to a known bug.
Since you can't access anything type Ctrl+Alt+T to open the terminal and enter:

I have the same problem on a quite new machine (Asus UX410UA). After pressing Esc there is no bootlog. It's hanged. Other distros are booting normally. The most interresting thing is when loki 0.4.1 arrived I tried to boot it and it worked. Now it does not (I redownloaded it). Sha sums are correct, it's not corrupted. Liveusb was created by dd command. It is ...
In the button "Custom" write 0 then click "Purchase elementary OS", then "Download". The download will start without problem and without asking you any money!
It would be great to download it via bitorrent and seed for awhile, since you're not paying.
