Any luck with convergence/desktop mode on 1.2a devices?
#1
Hello all. I recently acquired the pinephone community Manjaro edition, but after trying it out, I much prefer using the ubports image, which (at the moment) seems a lot smoother and more stable to me.

I know there are hardware issues with the actual ubports ce pinephone that procent desktop mode from working properly, but as my pinephone is running the new 1.2a hardware revision, I would expect convergence to work. However, so far I have not been able to get my pinephone dock to work at all on ubports.
Has anyone else had success using ubports convergence with the latest pinephones running on the 1.2a hardware revision?
I wonder if there needs to be additional software support to make this work properly. I'm not sure if desktop convergence is supposed to work automatically with a dock and hdmi out, or if I have to enable that somehow (on Manjaro phosh there is a setting to toggle "desktop mode", but no such thing on ubports)

Current UBPorts build has not yet supported convergence setup.

Same here. It seems no external usb device works. At least my external usb keyboard won't work directly in the usb-c port, or in the CE Dock (in Ubuntu Touch).
