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.

    We’re aware of this error message and have investigated if there is any underlying problem or performance impact. We don’t believe that there any actual problem here, and this message is not responsible for performance issues reported in this thread.

    However we can’t find a way to easily suppress the message. We know this is annoying and would like to stop it appearing so we’re continuing to look at ways to stop it.

  9. 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. Why does the 4 year old Chip has the ID DL-6950 and the new Chip has DL-6910?

    Hello

    In 2016, you presented the DL-6950 Chip.
    In 2019, you present DL-6910.

    Is the new Chip less powerful?

    Thanks a lot, kind regards,
    Thomas

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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**. :-(((((((((((((

  18. Add Debian support in general. As most Linux distros are based on Debian that would make your tech work on most Linux distros.

    You don't have to reinvent the wheel: https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian

    That also would make it easy for Deepin Linux to adapt the drivers. Deepin is Linux distro #1 in China! Just think: Deepin + Lenovo (Thinkpad)

  19. Please make a disclaimer for Video Editors. Thanks!!

    usb 3.0 to hdmi on Mac OS 10.14 makes the external monitor image considerably darker. It is unusable for editing as the image is drastically compromised and does not represent the true output.

  20. Retain Windows positions on screen when plugging in dock cable

    When i switch between 2 computers using the same dock, all the windows positions are lost and i have to spend time rearranging them back to where i like them (across multiple monitors). I swap pcs regularly during the day and i waste alot of time doing this. If it can retain the windows settings it would be awesome
