Hello, I own a Thinkpad P1 and am currently running Arch Linux 5.1.8-arch1-1-ARCH.
I want to access my USB-drive over one of the two USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, however, the device does not show up with `lsblk`. Connecting my phone also does not allow to use it as a USB-drive, but the phone is charged at least.
Anyone else having these issues?

Welcome to the community forums.
What kind/model of USB-C flash drive are you trying to connect on your laptop via USB-C? What is the phone model you did connect on the laptop?
We'd like to help you sort this out.

My usb flash drive is a "Transcend TS32GJF780 Extreme-Speed JetFlash 32GB USB-Stick USB 3.1". It is not a USB-C Flash drive, but a USB 3.1 A. I am using a simple adapter from A to C to connect it.
The phone is a Google Pixel 3 and it has a native C port

Testing I just did also showed my phone also did not connect (Samsung S8+) but did charge. I tried 4 different USB memory sticks and 2 worked (Sandisk and mosDart) and two did not work (Lexar and no label SMI type) so it does seem to somewhat work.

I retested Using Redhat 8.0 and and updated to the latest BIOS and all USB devices I tried are working correctly. Also on my phone it see the computer, the computer does not see the phone since the android options on my phone were preventing it. If you see USB device connected select for options on your phone it is connected, my phone by default was disabled so the linux OS could not see my phone if I changed the settings it connected correctly as a divice for storeage or transfer.
