Ubuntu 18 & Thinkpad Dock - External Monitor available rate not working
 
Running Ubuntu 18, on a Thinkpad E590, connected to a Thinkpad USB-C Dock, which is then connected, via DisplayPort to an Ultrawide monitor.

This monitor's native resolution is 3840x1600 @ 60hz.

This set up works perfectly fine in Windows 10; I get the resolution and I get the refresh rate of 60.

In Ubuntu, I can only get the external monitor to run at 29.99hz, even though 59.99 is an available option in xrandr:

Output of xrandr:

Code:

DP-1-2 connected 3840x1600+1920+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 874mm x 366mm
  3840x1600    59.99 +  29.99*
  3440x1440    75.05    59.97 
  2560x1080    50.00 
  1920x1080    74.99    60.00    60.00    50.00    59.94 
  1680x1050    59.95 
  1600x900      60.00 
  1280x1024    75.02    60.02 
  1280x800      59.81 
  1152x864      75.00    59.97 
  1280x720      60.00    50.00    59.94 
  1024x768      75.03    60.00 
  832x624      74.55 
  800x600      75.00    60.32 
  720x576      50.00 
  720x480      60.00    59.94 
  640x480      75.00    60.00    59.94

So you can see 59.99 is reported as an available rate, but...

Code:

xrandr --output DP-1-2 --mode 3840x1600 --rate 59.99
doesn't change the rate; it stays on 29.99 and reports:

Code:

xrandr: Configure crtc 1 failed
xorg.log shows:

Code:

4395.610] (EE) modeset(0): failed to set mode: No space left on device

[  4398.303] (II) modeset(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines:

[  4398.303] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1920x1080"x0.0  110.88  1920 1968 2000 2080  1080 1083 1088 1111 -hsync -vsync (53.3 kHz e)

I would accept that the 59.99 isn't supported if it didn't show in xrandr... but it does!

I have updated the Thinkpad dock to the latest firmware, and also installed the latest DisplayLink drivers from https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu - but the additional libraries as suggested on
https://support.displaylink.com/know...ware-on-ubuntu didn't install - libraries not found, but thinking these are obsolete now on Ubuntu 18?

Also, after initial setup, I experienced screen flickering with the dock, so disabled PageFlip as per https://support.displaylink.com/know...ent-x-upgrades

Any suggestions, most appreciated.

Thanks

Thinkpad E590 + USB-C Dock Gen 2 + Ubuntu 20.04
 
Hello,
I need to connect 2 external monitors to my ThinkPad E590 with Ubunut 20.04. Do you still have some problems, what's your setup ? I'm planning to buy USB-C Dock Gen 2 and I'm not sure if it's gonna work for me. Can you recommend another working solution to connect 2 external monitors and charging via usb-c to my E590 with Ubuntu ?
Sorry for the problem, and thanks in advance for answers.
