hi there ricklinux,

yeah its a lenovo dockingstation. lt and dockingstation are connected via usb-c and the monitor is connected via dp to the docking station.

the external keyboard and mouse works just fine. (its also connected to the dockingstation.)

so its only the monitor who has “problems”.

kind regards

update: you can close the thread. found another solution.


Can you just explain the solution?
