  1. The current display link drivers has issues on MacOS 10.12 Sierra. Black screens waking from sleep and graphic Errors

    When my computer wakes from sleep, all of my screens will stay black until I unplug the dock. I also see a lot of graphic errors on the secondary display and the computer freezes a lot when I'm working on the secondary display. Not only is the dock causing my secondary display to not work, it is causing my computer to become unstable trying to correct it.

      • Not working on ubuntu 16.04

        After I upgraded to 16.04 LTS, I could not use my DisplayLinks graphics/ethernet adapter for graphics (ethernet works fine). I recently installed the newest driver (1.2.65) but I get this error:

        Warning: dlm.service changed on disk. Run 'systemctl daemon-reload' to reload units.
        Job for dlm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status dlm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

        I run journalctl as suggested by the error message and here is what I get:

        26 16:27:28 myhost systemd[1]: Starting DisplayLink Manager Service...
        -- Subject: Unit dlm.service has begun start-up

        • Add support for rotation in Ubuntu

          Currently this limitation exists "Rotation is not supported due to missing functionality in the generic modesetting driver". I have a monitor that I only use in portrait so this prevents me from fully moving to Linux.

              • 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

                • Home PC System/Networking Product

                  I would like to see a product that will allow me to have one main computer in my house and then have various monitors/keyboards located in other rooms be able to access and use the one computer through my network. 1 PC = less cost and less problems (I hope).

                      • Create ubuntu repository for your software.

                        Maybe do a PPA or some sort of repo for the software so it can be easily installed and upgraded.

                              • Support for LUTs

                                I have a laptop connected with an external monitor through a USB dock. It seems that DisplayLink does not support LUT as the ICC profile creation software (XRite i1Profiler) cannot complete the ICC profile creation for the secondary monitor connected through the USB Dock. The software works fine if I connect the monitor directly to the laptop HDMI port.

                                  • Correct sleep display issues on Mac

                                    When my MacBook Pro goes into sleep or screen-saver mode, it often loses the connection to the external monitor when I resume working. All other peripherals work fine, it is only the video that is problematic.

                                        Since 2016 anniversary update computer does not boot with usb driver attached. Laptop goes into a continuous loading loop. Need to disconnect, boot computer and then connect.

                                        • 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?
