  1. Fix "WindowServer [ERROR] - Unable to find display pipe for IOFB service: 18715" on MacOS

    DisplayLink do not work properly with 4K screens @ MacOS 10.14. It looks laggy, jamming, like FPS drop.

    • 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.…

        • Fix glitching mouse pointer in Ubuntu/Arch/Debian

          Hi,
          I've tried the DisplayLink driver using the recommended os (Ubuntu 16.04). After connecting a secondary display (1080p) using USB-C, I had a trail of blinking mouse pointers following the real one and all the animations started glitching.

          When moving the mouse over any Window except the Desktop, there would be a glitching square (about double the edge length of the mouse pointer sprite) containing the desktop background around the mouse pointer.

          I've also tried Arch Linux (using the AUR package) and Debian 9 (Using the Ubuntu package) and they show the exact same behavior.
          On the three operating systems,…

            • fix the delay in network connectivity

              Whenever I reboot or shutdown my Windows 10 device, the dock reinstalls and this delays the network adapter. This is "new" behavior as of about 10/3/18. That might be when I updated to a certain driver version. I am currently on the latest version and the issue still occurs. The monitors come up immediately, it's just the network adapter that is slow to enable.

              • Ubuntu driver: using dlm.service is rather unfortunate for a clash with dlm cluster control daemon

                See:
                https://pagure.io/dlm/blob/master/f/init/dlm.service

                It would be better if it could fail with an error in case the file already
                exists and is not authentic (from previous installation).

                Thanks for considering.

                • macOS 10.13.6 works with airplay, but multiple users cannot set display.

                  Using the UD3900 dock with macOS 10.13.6 works. I have set up multiple accounts to isolate data for enhanced security. All users have mirroring, but only the first user logged in can set the resolution. The subsequently logged in users have the same resolution as the laptop.

                  Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a reason or fix?

                  • Clone graphic card's monitor to USB DL monitor

                    Hello,
                    I am using three monitor displays, connected to one graphic card. It works fine. But additionally I plan to connect the fourth USB monitor, using DisplayLink utility. I need to obtain the clone of one of these three monitors to this USB one (DL). Unfortunately, the Actual Multiple Monitors soft does not allow to do it. What I can do?

                        • Support Ubuntu 18.10

                          I am currently installing the display link driver for Ubuntu 18.10, following https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian. I did not try the 4.4.24 install script for 18.04 with 18.10, assuming that it might fail for 18.10, and seeing success reports in https://support.displaylink.com/forums/287786-displaylink-feature-suggestions/suggestions/35648710-support-ubuntu-18-04, although some people see screen outages.
                          An officially supported 18.10 driver would be great.

                            • Figure out why your DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11 doesn't work

                              I've downloaded DisplayLink 4.3.1 for Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11. You have no troubleshooting articles addressing why this driver still fails to work. I'm trying to connect 2 additional screens to my Mac desktop. I've spent countless hours trying to fix this and I just have 2 black screens. This is such a ridiculous set of issues. What's your solution?

                                  • Intellij stuttering on Displaylink when opening

                                    Opening Intellij IDEA (and maybe other IDEs from Jetbrains) or a file in that IDE makes the output stutter a bit. It happens on every opening action

                                    The whole display, including the mouse pointer, stutters for a few seconds

                                    • DON'T UPDATE TO macOS 10.13.4

                                      Idea?
                                      DON'T UPDATE TO macOS 10.13.4 and DON'T use the DisplayLink Instaler 4.1.11 ... until they will have something which will work.
                                      I cannot get now even a single video at all ! Just a blank black screen!
                                      So how can I go back to 10.13.3 and uninstal the DisplayLink if I don't see anything on a screen? Any suggestions? Anyone?

                                      • Win10 and DL should just work

                                        Fix Display Link so it always works seamlessly with Win10; even after they do updates.

                                        • Support Night Shift and f.lux for Mac OS

                                          As documented, there is work underway for Windows to support f.lux. However, I haven't seen any clear communication that support Night Shift of f.lux on Mac OS is in the works as neither are supported via DisplayLink. It would be really nice to have these options on Mac.
