  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.

  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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. Fix DisplayLinkManager eating my CPU when nothing is moving on any DisplayLink screens

    The DisplayLinkManager process on Linux uses a significant amount of CPU (more than 100% of one core when there are screen repaints happening on other displays (not driven by DisplayLink). Things as simple as having an animated reaction icon visible in Slack can cause this with my dual-4k setup (one 4k monitor driven by DisplayLink, the other driven by the internal GPU).
