I'm trying to set up my USB 3.0 mini dock (https://en.j5create.com/products/jud380). So far, I have been able to get all of the ports to work except for the HDMI port.

Here is the output of lsusb:

I have tried following the loader.conf steps outlined in http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man4/umct.4freebsd.html by adding umct_load="YES" to /boot/efi/loader/loader.conf. The /boot/efi/loader path did not exist before I attempted this step, so I do not know if this new file is being loaded.

Edit

Given that all of the ports within the dock are detected except for the HDMI, how might I go about troubleshooting the HDMI port only?

  • Why are you trying to install Windows drivers? Everything in that dock is natively supported except the video outputs. Those are likely to be DisplayLink. Drivers here: displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu – user880592 May 20 '19 at 19:51
  • Thanks for taking a second to comment Gabriela. I'm trying Windows because what I've read online indicates there is no support for this brand and I've heard the same from their customer support. I'll see if DisplayLink will play nice with it. – TylersSN May 20 '19 at 19:55

    Pretty much all USB graphic devices are DisplayLink. Anyway, your question is essentially a X-Y problem. Edit your question to ask for help with making the docking station work, and include the output of lsusb. Because you want your docking to work, you don't want to install any windows drivers. – vidarlo May 20 '19 at 20:07

    According to DisplayLink, j5create products use Magic Control Technology (MCT) hardware. I am not aware of Linux drivers for those adapters, but you can of course try to find one yourself. I am pretty sure that this won't work using ndiswrapper. – danzel May 20 '19 at 21:38
  • @danzel - I'm assuming this is for an older MCT USB technology. I tried implementing the loader.conf as described in my updated question. – TylersSN May 22 '19 at 13:39
