  • Alex Pav: Poco F1 Mobian DisplayLink. Surprisingly smooth! Additional information can be found in the Linux Mainline for POCO F1 Telegram group1, rough summary: This was done using the Ubuntu Display Link driver and a modification to the device tree (and compiling the kernel) to enable USB host. The Poco F1 can't supply power over USB-C so you need a Y-cable (or a powered hub) to supply power to the Display Link adapter (Alex used a no-name one aquired at AliExpress).
