Better Linux support, a direct driver for X11 and support ARM devices and not crypted logs.86 votes
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.
ChromeOS Support For Samsung XE503C Chromebooks1 vote
It is planned to enable DisplayLink support for all Chromebooks available today. This has started with R51 enabling the first wave of Chromebooks.
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.1 vote
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.
Support Skype and WebEx in Windows 10. Currently both will only render a snapshot of the screen taken at the time sharing is initiated.1 vote
Hello, it sounds like a bug as we use WebEx in DisplayLink and everyone uses DisplayLink software. Would you please be able to follow the guide to report a bug so we can look into it? support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/544810-how-can-i-report-windows-installation-issues-to-di
The ability to update and also return to previous version in device manager in the control panel. this is regarding the displaylink corp drivers.3 votes
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.49 votes
Improve performance of rotated screens on Mac OS X5 votes
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.)1 vote
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.
I hope in the near future you could extend the "fit to TV" function to multiple displays. Thanks.4 votes
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).758 votes
The 1st two product line implementation is now complete. You can now try 8.3 Alpha 1 to send your feedback if you use a product based on DL-3000 and DL-5000 series:
Delivery is forecasted between end of July, early August for DL-3000 and DL-5000 on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10TH1, 10TH2, Creators Update and Fall Creators Update.
DL-6000 series based products are next in implementation.
support displaylink with proprietary drivers from nvidia and amd155 votes
This is on the backlog of Linux work, but is possible to be addressed by the community.
It is possible the issue could be fixed with changes to the EVDI driver, which is an open source component available on github here:
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.2 votes
In the MS world, Disply Link support is good when running Windows on a laptop or a tablet. When it comes to Windows phones. it is the opposite: nothing, nada.
Ask Microsoft, They are so in need of trendy feature to boost their market share in mobile phone business, I am ready to bet they would finance the development.86 votes
We have demonstrated this at the start of the year at CES2017. There is a lot of work needed to make it a product though.
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.9 votes
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 :-)1 vote
