How to use original PINEBOOK Pro USB-C Docking Deck with my PBP?
#3
As for HDMI you might have more luck in Manjaro if you install `linux-pinebookpro` package and use it as your kernel. Note that it's "frozen" at 5.7 so quite dated by now. Mainline Linux support for fusb302 USB-C controller found in Pinebook Pro is lacking, especially when it comes to driving displays. In short with mainline Linux you can't use external displays whatsoever. With some patches (dropped from Manjaro with kernel 5.18) you can use USB-C <-> DisplayPort cables but not HDMI. Back in the day there were hacks that made HDMI display work but they've stopped working with kernel 5.8. As far as I know no one is working on improving the situation so don't expect it to change anytime soon.
