Phone won't charge in Mobian
#1
Recently flashed an SD with Mobian and noticed that it isn't charging. Anyone else have similar issues? For what it's worth, I am on the most recent nightly build.

This appears to be related to the kernel module for a chip in several USB-C-to-HDMI adapters. It can be fixed by blacklisting the module.
To fix it, create or edit the file
Code:
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
and add the following line:
Code:
blacklist anx7688

Reboot, and smart chargers should now charge correctly.
PBP ISO / Debian Bullseye (unofficial installer)

Thank you, that worked. I swear I looked through that portion of the documentation but must have been lazy about it.

Another possibilty without backlisting or removing the module would be to turn the phone off and then plug in the charger. Mobian will start and continue charging.
Rebooting won't do for this trick.

Hey thanks for the link, it is very interesting, for all the info there

I didn't have any problem charging. If we have the same phone and same OS, why some charge some don't? I am updating using apt every 2-3 days, never had the charging problem. Weird?
