    • Add the driver into linux kernel

      Is there a chance displaylink could try to add the driver into mainline kernel (except the binary bits ofcourse), this way more distros and users could use it without problems, also community would probably help with development and maintenance.

      • 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?

                • better mac icc profiles for monitors

                  hi!

                  there seems to be a need for better icc color profiles for mac. i'm using asus mb169b+ portable monitor and the colors are not very good. there is a real problem with the subtile greys, they are not getting displayed.

                  hopefully there will be something done about this.

                          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.

                          • TrayIcon should always display if installed

                            Suggestion: The DisplayLink Manager TrayIcon should show even if the hardware is not detected. In that case, it should provide links to helpful KB articles (or better yet, include the troubleshooting steps offline).

                            That would have saved me about three hours of troubleshooting a 3rd-party (LizTek) product before I finally stumbled on this site.

                              Thank you for the suggestion. Now in implementation on v8.0 of our drivers. This will help the debugging by telling which element of the chain is missing. Today, the icon is only visible if drivers are installed, AND a device using DisplayLink technology is connected and running AND a working monitor is plugged into it.

                                  • HI, Let customers decide WHEN to install new drivers. (Automatic driver update messes up my 4 + 1 monitor trading station.) Thanks.

                                    (the automatic updates re-arrange and resize everything on my screens causing me headache. The driver should be updater when no windows left opened / programmes running.)

                                      I understand this is a problem and we already have a change in behaviour for our next major release.

                                      This will cause the software update to happen over the next reboot, rather than immediately while you are working.

                                    • 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.

                                      • I hope in the near future you could extend the "fit to TV" function to multiple displays. Thanks.

                                        • Support flux by allowing color calibration

                                          Flux will reduce the amount of blue light emitted by the screen which aids going to bed. As it stands, there is no support for color calibration to DisplayLink connected monitors. DCC/CI commands are supported, but there are issues that make it not a viable solution (http://superuser.com/questions/257606/is-there-a-work-around-to-configure-brightness-or-color-on-a-displaylink-monitor).

                                            The implementation progresses. The first products we are working on are the DL-3000 and DL-5000 series and you can have an early preview on Windows 10 Anniversary Update onwards for these devices: http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?p=82958#post82958

                                            Still a lot of work to do… Please do read the limitations before you start using it and use the forum for the feedback so it can be individually tracked and answered to.
