ARM linux support

Better Linux support, a direct driver for X11 and support ARM devices and not crypted logs.

    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.

        Is the Ubuntu driver actually an Ubuntu driver, or is it an x86/x64-only Ubuntu driver? On the supported OS list it says Linux - Ubuntu, it doesn't say "Partial", or "Limited" or "x86 only"?
        Thanks!

        I've got an Asus MB168B+ that I'd love to use with a Raspberry Pi 3 running Ubuntu MATE. Support seems sooo close, but no ARM divers. Please oh please just recompile the otherwise working Ubuntu drivers and distribute! It can't be that hard...

        What to do now?

        For DL 41xx DisplayLink series i have compiled the evdi and the udl module under kernel 4.4.0 for RaspberryPi2 ( and works well, the display is listed under lsusb) the only problem is, the displayLinkManager is not for ARM

        Hi!

        Just confirm this DON'T WORK :

        -- Raspberry Pi 2

        jordi@ubuntu:~/Software/displaylink-driver-1.0.335$ uname -a
        Linux ubuntu 3.18.0-25-rpi2 #26-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Sun Jul 5 06:46:34 UTC 2015 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

        jordi@ubuntu:~/Software/displaylink-driver-1.0.335$ sudo ./displaylink-installer.sh
        DisplayLink Linux Software 1.0.335 install script called:
        Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS
        Unsatisfied dependencies. Missing component: Linux headers for running kernel, 3.18.0-25-rpi2.
        This is a fatal error, cannot install DisplayLink Linux Software.

        But I know that a Raspberry Pi 2 with Fedora Linux have not problems to manage the same USB-Monitor...without any extra driver installation...
