Does this Dell 'driverless' dock work with Ubuntu?

fr flag

Dell sell this "USB-C 8-in-1 Driverless Mobile Dock" which includes HDMI video out Dell lists the operating systems which this works on, but does not include Linux or Ubuntu.

Given that it is 'driverless', I can't really see how the OS could/should affect this (but I know nothing about the internals of HDMI). Has anybody tried to connect this to a Dell laptop and got it to work on HDMI out? I'd be especially keen to know if you've managed to use this to attach a second HDMI monitor (ie, laptop, directly connected HDMI, plus this HDMI via the USB-C dock).

Alternatively, which of the Dell docks are known to work with Ubuntu?

It would be nice to believe that somebody else has tried that dock, but perhaps I'm being optimistic?

I have a precision 7520 with the tb16 dock and ubuntu 22.04.1, everything on the dock works.
I went to the dell support website, gave the service tag, downloaded what drivers they had and used them.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
