Pinebook pro kde has recently stopped recognizing external monitor

My Pinebook Pro KDE has recently (unfortunately I don’t know how recently) stopped recognising my external monitor.

Does anyone else have the same problem or could anyone suggest what I might try?

Thx in advance.

Since the switch to kernel 5.8, the patch we applied to enable USB-C Display out has stopped working. :frowning:

We are looking into it and hopefully we will find a solution.

OK Thanks.

I can confirm that, after downgrading to kernel version 5.7, the external monitor worked again.
To downgrade, use
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/linux-pinebook-5.7...
and restart

Yes switching to linux-pinebookpro fixes the external monitor issue.

sudo pacman -Sy linux-pinebookpro will solve it.
