DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. 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.

  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. Add support for 5120x1440 resolution

  11. Support lightning (aka HiDPI) resolutions

    On Mac Mojave, Displaylink does not support HiDPI resolutions. These are screen modes that render the desktop at double the size so that fonts become more crisp. For example on my 1440p monitor, there's a 720p HiDPI mode. When I connect the monitor directly to my mac, this mode can be selected. When I connect via my Dell D6000, nothing happens when selecting this mode.

    You can use the following open source application to select resolutions:

    https://github.com/chris1111/RDM

    A related issue is that custom resolutions added by the above application do not work when the monitor is connected via Displaylink -…

  12. 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).

  13. Support for Target Display Mode (i.e. using an iMAC as a monitor)

    An iMAC can be used as an external monitor using Target Display Mode. Is it possible to get a DisplayLink dock to enable TDM when iMAC is plugged to the dock (i.e. using a Tunderbolt 2 to HDMI cable)?

    For example, I have a MAC Book Pro 13inch (2016) and an iMAC 27inch (2012). I use iMac as an external monitor using TDM with MacBook Pro (using a Thunderbolt 2 to USB-C cable) as described on https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/mac-help/mh30822/mac

    I also have a Dell DA300 displaylink dock. Using Tunderbolt 2 to HDMI cable to connect iMAC to dock and USB-C from dock…

  14. Internal MBP monitor disabled after opening lid

    When using certain applications (namely, any Native Instruments product, e.g. Kontakt and Creator Tools), DisplayLink behaves strangely as reported in another issue.
    I'm used to keep the lid closed in order to use the external monitor only. Under certain circumstances, reopening the lid will keep the internal monitor disabled (i.e. black screen). The only workaround for this is hard-reboot.

  16. 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.

  17. Provide the capacity to color correct monitors with ICC profiles and custom Look Up Tables.

    I would like to be able to use my monitor color calibration tool [i1Profiler] to create and used custom ICC profiles for the monitors attached to the Display Link docking station.
    There does not seem to be any capability to do this with the current system.

  18. Potential work around for the Catalina Mac OS update

    I'm unsure if someone has already suggested this, but with the latest update Mac has rolled out (for Catalina 10.15), my DisplayLink stopped working with dual screen.

    I have updated the driver to the most recent release, and all that would display would be one of the two screens. DisplayLink lists a possible solution involving entering recovery mode and inputting commands, however, I am impatient and lazy and did not do that.

    But, I did get my dual display working again. For me, toggling my displays to mirror activated my dual screens, and toggling off mirroring has left my dual…

  19. Fix logging for Displaylink on Linux

    The logfiles in /var/log/displaylink currently contain hashed garbage. It would be nice if I could read them.

  20. Start supporting Linux on Lenovo's Thinkpad hardware!

    Lenovo is selling docking solutions for their Thinkpad laptos. These docks have DisplayLink stickers at the button but none of them is working properly with Linux! Deepin Linux (based on Debian) is massively used in China by IT professionals working with Lenovo's Thinkpad hardware. We want at least dual monitor support working with this hardware. At the moment getting this to work is just a big pain in the a**. :-(((((((((((((
