Hello, I’ve got a Framework 13 on which I’m running Ubuntu 23.04. When I plug my Android phone (a Pixel 5) into either of my USB-A expansion cards, the phone reports either that it is “Connected, not charging” or “Charging slowly.” In practice, the phone seems only to stay at its present charge rather than increase charge.
I’ve tried various configurations: laptop turned off, laptop on and plugged into the wall, laptop running off of battery alone. I’ve changing Ubuntu’s “Power Mode” config – setting it to “Performance” seems to make no difference.
I believe I’ve eliminated my cable and phone as the primary causes for the unexpected behavior with the following observations:
- My partner’s older iPhone does charge when plugged into the laptop, but more slowly than she is accustomed to.
- My Android charges as expected when plugged into her Windows tablet via the same USB cable.
Do I have to change some config at the OS level (or perhaps a BIOS setting) to enable my computer to power other devices? I’ve never needed to do so with any other Linux machine, but I suppose anything is possible with new hardware.
Thanks for your help,
