I already posted this over at reddit, but got no response until now.
I bought this cable just to find out my system doesn't do anything. Both lsusb and tail -f /var(log/kern.log don't show any difference when plugging the cable in and out. Is it worth trying to get this to work or should I just send it back directly? What is the status of DP via USB–C in Linux? (Found a lot of rather confusing questions and answers out there)
