      Update: November 5th
      Dear DisplayLink macOS users,

      DisplayLink has worked for many months to maintain support for its users during the transition from macOS High Sierra to Mojave. While functionality such as Ethernet and audio or charging, where implemented, is unaffected on all releases, display connectivity has been limited on macOS releases 10.13.4, 10.13.5 and 10.13.6.

      macOS 10.14 Mojave with DisplayLink driver v5.0.1 allows you to run up to 4 extended displays with now optional clamshell and mirror modes. Support for rotated displays is also improved.
      DisplayLink driver v5.0.1 is applicable to macOS 10.14 only.
      Driver v5.0.1: http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1257

      Should you experience black extended display(s) with only mouse cursor on 10.14. We recommend you use macOS 10.14.2 Beta 1 or newer. We have also left DisplayLink driver v4.3 Beta available to force an AirPlay extended display on these machines if you cannot update to 10.14.2 Beta 1 with DisplayLink driver 5.0.1.…

    • Please give users compatibility feedback on specific MacOS versions, e.g. 10.14.1. only

      Rather rather mixing up posts with various OS and driver versions please give users compatibility feedback on specific MacOS versions, e.g. 10.14.1.

      Currently, you make a difficult situation much harder

      • Samsung Dex compatability

        Any chance that Displaylink could extend the Samsung Dex display?

        It would be perfect, if that would work!

            • Enable HDCP protected content playback on macOS (iTunes)

              Hi,

              I had to downgrade to Sierra 10.12.6 because of the multi-monitor incompatibility of Displaylink 10.13.4. I need my multi monitor setup. But the truth is that Displaylink 4.1, which is compatible with Sierra 10.12.6, deactivate iTunes movies. Here is the message:

              The selected display won't play on one of your connected displays

              This movie can be played only on displays that support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). Try moving the iTunes window to a different display. Make sure the entire window is on the supported display.

              When I remove Displaylink from OSX 10.1206, iTunes movie start to plays back.…

                    • Alert to security issues if staying on older macOS

                      UPDATE macOS, abandon this unstable and insecure devices instead. Apple says DisplayLink is incorrect and opens you to a world of security flaws. I can open a port on the Ethernet using simple SSH commands that shouldn’t be that easy.

                      You advise not to update. Apple says the opposite and you are misleading customers into possible security issues. Reported and under review by Apple. Good luck, you have truly done your Apple patrons wrong in more than one way.

                      If you can’t build an alpha in a year, this beta should land about the same time I land on mars.

                      • Xrandr panning on Linux

                        I have a 12inch 2880x1920 monitor (eDP-1) and a 21inch (eDP-1) with a 1920x1080 native res. I tried to use

                        xrandr --fb 6720x2160 --output DVI-I-2-2 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of eDP-1 --scale 2x2 --panning 3840x2160+2880+0

                        and I got:

                        X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)

                                    Not enough bandwidth, At work with dedicated fiber line so speed and bandwidth is not the issue on our side. Trying to download a some what smaller 47 MB driver should not take 30 Min's or more!!!!!!! Need more bandwidth or web-hosting servers to speed up the process of downloading a simple driver

                                    • Issues with OSX using 802.1x using System Keychain

                                      We just deployed a few hundred of these devices (The Dell D6000)and the OSX devices will not use the system keychain to authenticate to 802.1x, This works properly with the onboard NIC, Apple USB-C Adapter, Belkin USB-C Adapter.

                                      We use an OSX Profile that states how to connect to 802.1x with ethernet using system credentials. This does not work with the Displaylink Dock. I can however manually input credentials manually and it works, but no user accounts are allowed to authenticate only machine accounts.

                                      • Work on compatibility w/ Ableton Live 10 (current version crashes Live)

                                        I'm running MacOS 10.13.3 (downgraded from 10.13.4 for reasons that I'm sure you know) on a MacBook Air (13-Inch Mid 2011, 1.8Ghz Core i7, 4 GB RAM) and whenever I have any of your latest (e.g. most recent final releases, two most recent "Betas" to fix the issue with MacOS 10.13.4) it causes Ableton Live 10 (10.0.1) to not load/run.

                                        The main reason that my computer system and I have a DisplayLink in my environment is for making music. I use the two screen setup while working with Live to have my AU and VST plugins visible while tracking. Without…

                                        • This has allowed me to get both external monitors in "extended" mode

                                          Try this

                                          1- shut down your MB
                                          2 - unplug both adapters
                                          3- restart MB
                                          4- after it's up and you've logged in first plug in the the display port adapter and wait for the monitor to come online it should be an extension, not mirror of the MB monitor
                                          5-plug in the USB adapter and it should mirror the MB display, though at a lower resolutions than the other external monitor.
                                          6- DO NOT CLOSE THE MB. If you do it will create a mirror to both monitors if you do

                                          While the MB comes up okay when the…
