I bought a new Dell XPS 2018 (model no. 9370) and together a dock station TB16 but it doesnt work very well on Fedora so far.

  • My instalation is pretty new... from two days ago.
  • Just turned the dock station on and pluged into the thunderbolt 3 port.
  • Charging works fine, but ethernet and usb (tested mouse and flashdrive) dont.

Had a look around and got nothing useful so far.

After a bit of googleing it seems that:

  1. TB16 is crap.
  2. Update your BIOS to the latest version.
  3. Disable Thunderbold Security in the BIOS.

It then might work. Good luck.
