Getting the dock to work.

Thank you for your response. I installed your suggestion, then I found information in the December Community update and tried that. Nothing seemed to make the video out on the dock work.

Then I found that when I jiggled the connector, the external monitor came on. So in the end the dock video out ports are working if I can get the connector just right. Of course bumping the machine when it is running, shuts everything down again. As I mentioned the only USB C item I have is the Dock, so I am not sure if the dock connector is bad, or the connector on the Pinebook Pro itself is bad since I have never used the connector on the Pinebook Pro until I purchased the dock.

Thanks again for your response, it looks like my problem is a hardware problem.
