  1. Add support for VMware USB passthrough so guest OS can have dedicated display output

    For DL-3xxx and DL-5xxx devices especially.

    This is already working for MacOS but not working for Windows (as mentioned in DisplayLink KB 544870) and Linux.

    This will allow multiple DisplayLinks to be used on single VM hosts behaving like thin clients, which is an enormous user base and thus market potential.

    • Connecting via Cat6 instead of USB3

      Would be nice to rackmount a few of my PCs in the garage and just gave displaylink devices on the desks kinda like dumb terminals. 3m USB 3 cable limit doesnt allow for this. Maybe its possible with usb extenders. But to get the hot and loud gaming PC's out of the rooms will be a win.

      • Fix linux driver scaling

        Scaling doesn't work with the linux DisplayLink driver. This makes it impossible to use displays of different DPI together. By scaling I mean, for example:

        xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --auto --scale 2x2

        • add brightness support to non-windows OSes

          It's stated in the documentation that color correction and brightness do not work. I'm mostly interested in controlling the birghtness - is display link working on these features for non-windows OSes?

              I’ve updated this to be for ARM Linux support. EVDI is designed as an open source component to be adapted for different graphics architectures.

              The logs from the DisplayLink binary component are encrypted to protect IP. This is the same on all OSes for DisplayLink binary components.

            • Make DisplayLink driver available for installation and update from Ubuntu repository

              Contact Canonical to make DisplayLink driver available for installation and update from Ubuntu repository, like AMD and nVidia driver packages.

                • 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!

                        • Android portrait

                          Add screen rotation to Android client. I have a display link monitor than can be turned to portrait mode. But, by default, my device displays in a box unless I turn the device to landscape... It then fills the screen. I would ask that the app allow me to hold the phone in portrait and display to my portrait monitor full screen. It does display correctly for a short time before rotating fully.

                            • Don't require drivers to be installed for disabled display adapters

                              I have a machine with an integrated display adapter and a PCI adapter running Windows 10. The integrated controller is not supported by Windows 10 and I have disabled it using device manager (I don't have an option to disable it in BIOS). When I attempt to install the DisplayLink core software, it re-enables the disabled adapter and then tells me it cannot install the software because there are no drivers for the adapter that I had disabled.

                                    • to integrate a PAUSE function into your firmware, that freezes the displayed content anc can eb activated/de-activated by keyboard.

                                      Freeze functions on classical projectors were very popular, in particular for people facilitating workshops or holding seminars. With the introduction of LCD screens this feature disappeared. Display link could easily re-introduce this. Ideally, hitting a (user-definable) key combination would turn PAUSE on and off. In addition the status (frozen / unfrozen) should be displayed with the application icon.

                                      Please go ahead :-)
