  1. Support WIndows 10 Night Light

    With the Windows 10 Creators Update, you can now lower the amount of blue light emitted from your PC with the new Night light feature.

    Settings > System > Display

    This feature doesn't work on my HP s140u monitor using DisplayLink 8.4.2250.0. I'm guessing it might not work on lots of other devices too.

    • Release Linux driver source code to the community

      Your "Ubuntu" driver package works inconsistently, fails every time there is a system update to the kernel or the X server, and performs badly. It's clearly not a priority for your development team, who likely have orders to focus their efforts on the larger market-share platforms. The open-source community is packed with talented developers who will work for free to help you deliver a more polished product, providing a better experience for your users, and ultimately resulting in more product sales.

      • See all dockingstations of same type as same device

        Hi!

        We have installed a multitude of workstations with the same type of DisplayLink docking station. When moving from one station to another, the monitor settings are "forgotten" and the new Dell D6000 is seen as a completely new device, and new drivers and settings for monitors, network and usb are needed to be configured.

        Therefore I suggest making it possible to have the driver think that all docks of the same type is also the same device. This will make this problem go away.

        Thanks
        Patrik

        • 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.

            • Enable 4K HDR support to TV's for extended display use when viewing High End Photographs in Capture One or other Photo Edditing software

              A large number of Photographers are using high end Cameras capable of recording 16 bits per pixel HDR. There are also a large number of 4K HDR TV's being sold but they only display Jpeg format at 8 bits per pixel. It would be fantastic to have a device that would bring these technologies together so people could use their TV's to view and or edit their HDR photographs properly on a 4K HDR device.

                  Today, this is at the discretion of the hardware vendor to select if they want the UI on their product. Switching to Gathering Feedback, but, with Windows 7 almost already 3 years out of mainstream support from Microsoft, DisplayLink is unlikely to create new features for that OS.

                  If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty and have sufficient access rights on the machine, you can use http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/528017

                    • 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…

                        • 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.

                            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!

                              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.

                              • 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.

                                        Your web main menu is bad - the older one was better. The new "Menu" thing is dumb, and unclear.

                                        • 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…
