Onelink Dock and Linux support

2013-12-08, 1:13 AM

Is it possible to use the Onelink Dock with Linux? Which ports don't (or might not*) work?

 

* Does it use Displaylink technology as other USB Docking stations?

 

Thanks a lot!

For all of you out there wondering the support for Onelink i.c.w. Linux

 

Out of the box working:

- HDMI

- Sound (depending on your device change soundcard output)

- USB (front and back)

 

Not (yet) working:

- Ethernet

@martensson do you have HDMI working from the port on the onelink dock?

I haven't been able to get Ubuntu to recognise that port, and assumed it was being powered by one of th new unsupported DisplayLink chips.

How did you get it to work/what OS are you using?

Thanks

@euph

 

Yes, I got the HDMI port working, it is recognized immediately by my laptop (TP E540) running Linux Mint 16 (based on Ubuntu 13.10) and I use it daily (my IIyama monitor is connected through the HDMI port).

 

I am not sure how the HDMI port actually works, whether it is a real new video device or just another port for your video device (in my case; Intel based video driver; no support yet for the nvidia optimus).

 

What videocard / driver are you using?

I've bought one now and everything works (LAN after kernel module compilation - thanks to mrblue!). I'm using Kubuntu 13.10 (kernel version: 3.11.0 ) and the HDMI port worked out of the box - the internal HDMI port is called "HDMI1" in xrandr, the Onlink Dock HDMI port "DP2".

Hi,

 

Yeah my mistake. The HDMI on the dock works. The cable I was using was broken.

 

Does anyone else get strange usb errors in dmesg when the dock is plugged in?

It seems that there is one more issue, connected to OneLink Dock under Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS): it is often do restart instead of poweroff:

1. Press Power button on dock

2. Press "Power off" on screen dialog

3. Wait until poweroff

4. Sometimes (0.5 probability) it power on notebook right after the power off.

 

I use it with B5400 laptop.
