I suggest you...

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Will you be supporting Ubuntu 16.04 LTS? Got an ETA?
It would be great if you would add/post a deb or even better a ppa site.

Thanks,
Dennis

        DisplayLink monitors do not work after upgrade to the latest Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS. Xorg server crashes, system restarts it, mouse works on DisplayLink monitors, desktop wallpaper may be visible sometimes, but windows are not visible.

        Worked well after the initial installation of Ubuntu 16.04, and stopped working after upgraded all packages to 16.04.03. Xorg crashes, monitors get initialized, but I can see only mouse moving: windows are not visible on DisplayLink-connected monitors

        HP Pavilion here, Ubuntu 16.04, kernel 4.4, can make several peripherals work (mouse, keyboard, etc), but external monitors are not recognized at all. Tried everything, all updates and newest drivers, but the support center knows nothing about Linux problems... ANY IDEA???

        I tried this latest driver with Ubuntu 16.04.03 LTS on my Samsung series 7 Ultrabook. I have a Fujitsu PR08 USB 3.0 port replicator. Did not work. The installation went ok following the instructions and I can have one first screen visible on my second screen. Regardless if I want to use the external screen only or both screens, the screen freezes and does not work. Any ideas?

        Asus Zenbook UX330UA screen flickering on Ubuntu 16.04, made me switch to Windows until this is resolved.

        The dock does not work at all (Thinkpad X1 carbon), no output to th e monitor.
        Any idea?
        Thank you.

        I've bought the above mentioned configuration. Unfortunately the drivers don't support the monitors very well. There are only two supported and it is necessary to use the xorg-drivers as the nvidia drivers lead to blank screens with the D3100. With the xorg-drivers everything is really slow and things like flickering mouse pointers and such is happening all time.

        Would appreciate it if there would be support for this configuration (Maybe the whole new generation of Dell Notebooks should be kept in mind).

        Job for displaylink.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status displaylink.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

        -DisplayLink 1.2.65 works for me on Ubuntu 16.04
        -If upgrading from an older version of DisplayLink, make sure you run this FIRST:

        "displaylink-installer.sh uninstall"

        -In some older versions of DisplayLink, the above lives in /usr/lib/displaylink

        -In DisplayLink 1.2.65, the above lives in /opt/displaylink

        -After you run the above, run the "displaylink-driver-1.2.65.run" file as usual.

        ->The installation instructions need to be updated so that they address 16.04 as well as 14.04!!!

        with Ubuntu Gnome (hence, Gnome Display Manager, aka GDM), there is still the same problem. I need to login with DisplayLink unplugged, then I can plug after login. Otherwise it won't work.
        Furthermore, there are no man pages, you don't know where the files are, you don't know that there is a systemd script called 'dlm.service', you don''t know that there is an install/uninstall script because it has permissions 700 and normal users won't see it (normal user should see teh script and should be prompted to run as root), you're not providing a deb/rpm file, there is actually no repository for it and we need to check manually for updates.
        Let's say, that there is much room for improvements...

        Hi, i'm running Ubuntu 16.04 and i'm getting the same error like others:
        "Job for displaylink.service failed because the control process exited with error code..."
        I hope we get a fixed driver soon. I decided to take DisplayLink because of Ubuntu support!
        Best

        [Ubuntu 16.04] ]If you guys are having problem to start the "displaylink service", and already turned off the Secure Book, you can turn off the validation using the command:

        sudo mokutil --disable-validation

        Hi,

        I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and I tried to install driver version 1.1.62.
        I'm having the same problem mentioned by Jonathan.

        Error:

        Hi,

        I am using Xubuntu 16.04 LTS and have just downloaded the latest driver.
        I have run 'sudo ./displaylink-driver-1.1.62.run' and I receive the following error:

        Job for displaylink.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status displaylink.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

        Can anyone help with this?
