    • Support Ubuntu 17.04

      Ubuntu 17.04 is not supported. I'm using a Dell D6000 docking station.
      Network and USBs work, but headphones, monitors don't.

      Also the current release cannot be installed without disabling Secure Boot.

          • not atrociously lag the display link connected monitor when CPU isnt 100% used

            If I compile anything in visual studio (not using parallel compilation) the CPU doesnt exceed 30% usage, but the display link connected monitor lags the mouse by 0.3 seconds. Its like playing HalfLife on a 33.6k modem, getting 3-5 frames per second.

            There is no reason for this when there is plenty of CPU available.

            • Highsierra compatible

              Please make the usb driver highsierra (macOS 10.13) compatible! At the moment, I can see my mouse, moving on the monitor, everything other than that is just black. It would be bvery nice if I could use this monitor on highsierra!

              • Charging via DisplayLink to device information

                Can you please review/update your information surrounding Android vs USB-C vs DisplayLink vs Charging? There is lots of conflicting information around this online (mostly on your site!) - most referring to periods pre-2016.

                It is hard to ascertain if a DisplayLink device is a solution to my consumer scenario/issue at home.

                • package ubuntu software properly

                  Packaging of ubuntu drivers into a .zip file with a name containing lots of spaces, which unzips into the current folder instead of a subfolder, and then requires the manual execution of an installer script (which may as well be called setup.exe), makes ubuntu users feel like we are running Windows again, and reminds us why we hated it so much. Ubuntu offers a superior packaging format (the .deb package), and a repository model which offers streamlined installation, and automatic updates forever. Setting up a repository for your software and packaging it properly will take very little more effort than…

                    • Allow gamma custom ranges in the Ubuntu driver to allow for night time color changes software to work (f.lux, Redshift, etc...)

                      Gamma color calibration seems to be unavailable for the Displaylink on Ubuntu.
                      Allowing it will enable night time screen color changing software to work and also allow manual customization with xrandr commands.

                          • Make the Linux driver open source and get it into the kernel

                            If the DisplayLink driver existed in the kernel, it would be SO much easier for the users to get it working. In my role as Chief Digital Officer for a large company (of 8000 people), I would probably have bought 500 of these devices IF the driver were just upstream (you know, how Linux devices normally "just work" without the aggro common in the Windows world). However, the annoyance of a manual driver install, especially when it's broken on updates to newer kernels, is just something I wouldn't want to invest in. Please consider that proprietary drivers are serious impediment…

                              • Support Night Shift and f.lux for Mac OS

                                As documented, there is work underway for Windows to support f.lux. However, I haven't seen any clear communication that support Night Shift of f.lux on Mac OS is in the works as neither are supported via DisplayLink. It would be really nice to have these options on Mac.

                                • No display driver due to secure boot

                                  It would be good to mention that due to secure boot settings
                                  it can happen that the evdi.ko driver is actually not loaded.
                                  In this case no displays are found.

                                  A solution is to switch off the secure boot - see:

                                    • Add upgrade logic to the Linux installation scripts

                                      I had version 1.1.62 of the Ubuntu driver installed. When I tried to install the new driver, I got errors saying the EVDI module was running and I needed to reboot to continue the installation. After reboot, I got the same error again.

                                      After looking into the running DisplayLinkManager process, I ended up dropping into /usr/lib/displaylink and running the install script there with the uninstall option:

                                      me@mine:/usr/lib/displaylink$ sudo ./displaylink-installer.sh uninstall
                                      DisplayLink Linux Software 1.1.62 install script called: uninstall
                                      Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
                                      Uninstalling
                                      Removing EVDI from kernel tree, DKMS, and removing sources.
                                      Stopping DLM systemd service
                                      Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/graphical.target.wants/displaylink.service. …

                                      • Ubuntu drivers eating a lot of CPU. Not always but at least 50% of the times

                                        I have actually a very slow PC because of this:
                                        PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
                                        1541 root 20 0 2343424 51804 2624 S 111.9 1.4 198:49.14 DisplayLinkMana
                                        in other words, DisplayLinkMana(ger) eats a lot of CPU. from 50 to more than 100%

                                        sometimes not.

                                        I think this is an issue, that should be fixed.

                                        Thank you.

                                        • Linux wayland support

                                          Displaylink does not seem to work with wayland yet, which is starting to be the standard, replacing Xorg, on linux soon:

                                          https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/WaylandByDefault
                                          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayland_(display_server_protocol)

                                          Would be great if you could also support wayland!
