      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.…

    • 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.
      I've described issue in details here: https://displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66349

      • Samsung Dex compatability

        Any chance that Displaylink could extend the Samsung Dex display?

        It would be perfect, if that would work!

          • 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.

                • 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

                        • 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)
                                    Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)
                                    Minor opcode of failed request: 29 (RRSetPanning)
                                    Serial number of failed request: 46
                                    Current serial number in output stream: 46

                                    I have an Asus t303ua
                                    with:
                                    VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 520 (rev 07) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

                                    Is there a plan to support panning in…

                                          General overhaul of DisplayLink UI and installation manual. If I were complete beginner, I probably would have no chance to get it running properly.
