I have a brand new Galaxy Book3 in which I installed Ubuntu 23.04 (I've been using linux for a long time now). When I connect my notebook to an external monitor, through the HDMI port, the monitor is not shown as a display option.
Using the same HDMI cable with an HDMI -> USB-C adapter, I can use the external monitor without problems.
I've seen a post on Ask Ubuntu (unfortunately, I could not link it here) that describes the same situation, but with a different vendor. Apparently, the fix would be possible with a BIOS update, correcting some bug that prevents linux from detecting the HDMI port (I've also tested with Fedora 38, on a flash drive, and the result was the same).
Is there any chance of a firmware update coming soon from Samsung that would solve this problem I'm having?
I didn't know that Samsung was not part of the LVFS (Linux Vendor Firmware Service) before posting my question here. My previous notebook was a Lenovo and I never had to worry about BIOS updates before (there is an open source daemon - fwupd - that handles firmware upgrades in Linux based systems... provided that the vendor makes it available through LVFS).
Well... I guess my best chance is getting Windows 11 back and keep it on a partition just for BIOS updates. It is a shame, though...
Thanks for the response, anyway 🙂
The short answer is no, I didn't.
I've installed Windows 11 back and updated everything (which included at least one Bios firmware update), but it did not solve this problem I'm experiencing with Ubuntu (which is now in a dual boot installation).
Sorry for the bad news...
