May anybody confirm please you just need an USB-C to USB cable in order to run Samsung Dex? I have a compatible tablet using Android 9.0 but it doesn’t work. My MacBook doesn’t recognise the tablet when using Samsung Dex (but it does when using other softwares)
Yes.
But for recognize and turn dex on, you need to put the Power cable.

It is difficult to share pictures on here eh! Now it should be okay:

The warning message in Spanish from the second picture means "the device cannot access to the tablet data. please plug out and plugin again. It is necessary to install Android File Transfer or Smart Switch", however I have installed and uninstalled both and it doesn't work either.

I didn't understand your goal.
Do you want to have dex on the macbook?
Or did you activate dex on the tablet and want to communicate with the mac via cable?
I never saw that.
I just see the phone connected via hdmi on a screen activating the dex

How didn't you? Here you have an example:

Actually you just need to go to the Samsung DeX website and see the application to be downloaded for macs.

I would appreciate if we avoid to provide wrong information if we are not sure and just try to add useful information if possible.
