Kubuntu 23.10 won't recognize ports from HP Dock

I just bought HP Thunderbolt Dock G2 and would like to use it so that I could connect external HD to USB-C (Thunderbolt) and plug my headphones into it.

Now the situation is that monitor works fine from the dock (displayport), but Kubuntu won’t find any devices from USB-C, USB-A or headphone ports.

Any ideas how I should start digging into this?


Okay I was too quick with the post. I resolved this issue, I found instructions from Linux Mint forum.

The solution is to activate the device with boltctl command.

Here is the commands I used:



sudo boltctl enroll --policy auto UUID

Now all the ports started working! Even audio coming through.

Not sure what the paranoia is about the UUID but you clearly missed the full display of it with the dbus path: showing it…
