  1. Beta macOS App: Clamshell / Lid Closed Mode

    Beta Mac OS App driver does not allow me to operate on external monitors with the laptop closed. I had to uninstall the driver and reinstall the one from November to be able to work in clamshell mode. This is glitchy in the old driver, often freezing my computer. I was hoping to see this stabilize so I wouldn't have to restart so often (almost every time I disconnect my laptop from the docking station).

  2. Support both Xorg and Wayland with acceptable performance in Ubuntu 20.04

    The current released Ubuntu installer doesn't work in 20.04, which will be released in a couple of months as the next LTS release.
    If you hack the installer not to compile the kernel module, and instead use the kernel module and install the libevdi0 that ship with Ubuntu, then you can use DisplayLink under Wayland, but the performance is terrible -- significant lags in display updates and watching videos is impossible. And in this configuration DisplayLink doesn't work with Xorg at all.
    Please rectify this before 20.04 ships.

  4. MacOS Display Arrangement does not save.

    With the latest release of Display Link, the Display Arrangement for a MacBook Air with 2 external monitors reverts back to default every time the machine is put to sleep or restarted.

  5. DisplayLink is still not working in MacOS 10.15.1

    I was reading all open threads in the forum, and I can see different behaviors. In my case, I cannot use my external monitors, after upgrading my system to Catalina. Beta 3 driver is not working, and when I tried to clean cache system is getting hung after restart.

  9. Have a rotating option for Mac Catalina

    There should be a driver where you have an option to rotate the screen for use on both sides. The Display monitor can only go on one side for Mac and it sucks because you should be able to use rotation for how you want your screen to be.

  12. Fix the High CPU usage (20-40%) issue! Mint Linux 19.3 Kernel 5.4 & Cinnamon UI. Fan kicks in every 2 minutes-DisplayLink is top process

    Fix the High CPU usage (20-40%) issue! Mint Linux 19.3 Kernel 5.4 & Cinnamon UI. Fan kicks in every 2 minutes-DisplayLink is top process using between 20 and 50% of CPU every 2 minutes. I have only one 32" monitor connected at 2560x1440 resolution and 60 Hz and using Chrome to browse the web (Phillips 328E)

  13. Provide a direct download link for latest the (Mac) driver download

    This would allow Mac Admins to automate the process of downloading DisplayLink software whenever there is a new version using open-source projects such as autopkg. The implementation of a ToS page breaks our current functionality.

    Perhaps even make a specific URL for admins, that when used implies that we agree to the ToS.

    This would allow us to push DisplayLink updates to our users much faster.

  14. instead of calling it good for Mac, maybe fix the high CPU usage, HDCP issues, and add clamshell mode when using the display link manager.

  15. API or Atom Feed of Downloads

    It would be highly beneficial to have access to an atom feed or API endpoint to query and determine if there are updates available for driver packages.

  18. Ubuntu package with Linux Kernel 5.7 support for new Ryzen Renoir 4000 series laptops

    Ubuntu package with Linux Kernel 5.7 support for new Ryzen Renoir 4000 series laptops.

    I recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 and purchased a Qgeem USB to HDMI adapter to add a second external monitor. The Ubuntu 20.04 displaylink package works but is quite buggy. The video has more lag than on other hardware and the video input can act erratic at times.

  19. When is DisplayLink drivers going to work after suspend session on Ubuntu 20.04

    Any word as to when this will be fixed? Looks like this problem has been around awhile. Running Ubuntu 20.04 with latest DisplayLink 5.3.1.34. Have there been any work-arounds found to wake the device up rather than powering down, unplugging and then plugging back in after a power up? I haven't found any command line suggestions that appear to work. Great product when it is working - thanks!

  20. We need to be able to select the rendering GPU.

    I have 3 GPUs in my computer and the DisplayLink driver always defaults to GPU 0 in the system. I only want GPU 0 to drive a single monitor, and use my secondary GPUs for rendering non-intensive content, which is what I use the USB monitor for.
