  2. 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.

  4. 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 -…

  5. Charging

    at least charging the laptop from the dock. If I need to use additional port then it defeats the purpose of dock, I can use usb's on monitor and hdmi extender slots.

  6. Add support for ios 13 or make a product mainly for it.

    Add support to ios ( idk if this is even possible ) but iOs 13 looks promising. A dock or stand for ipad pro for mainly desktop use would be great!

  7. Fix screen zoom on MacOS

    With 5.1.1 on MacOS 10.14.5, screen zoom/pan (Ctrl-Scroll Up) does not work properly on the DisplayLink screen... it tears and only zooms part of the screen.

  8. Implement IOMMU support

    Implement IOMMU Support
    IOMMU is necessary on many libvirt based linux virtual hosts in order to allow guest machines to make use of the host's hardware, such as graphics cards and network cards. In its current state, turning on IOMMU results in Displaylink being unable to communicate with secondary displays, completely negating any benefit from having a displaylink dock.

  11. Add firmware / version information to the Dock Management Tool

    While the firmware update is Silent, in large scale deployments it would be useful to know / be able to report on the Firmware version.
    This would enable admins to rule-out old firmware as the cause of faults and detect where an older client is still in use.

    If this information is readily available it could be added as another command in the Dock Management Tool, or in the Support Info Tool

  12. Provide an App or Instructions for manually starting or restarting displaylink (Mac)

    The DisplayLink option in the top bar of my Mac sometimes just doesn't show up. The only known option seems to be restarting but this doesn't work most of the time. It would be enormously helpful to know how to directly troubleshoot this service at a technical level or to simply have an 'App' that I could search for and restart.

  14. Fix your broken driver for macOS High Sierra (10.13.6)!

    Having recently upgraded to High Sierra on a Mac that can't use Mojave I am now stuck with a completely useless Asus MB16AC that was supposedly enabled for use on Mac by your driver.
    Your supposed "fix" of extending via Airplay doesn't work. In Preferences, even when DisplayLinkUserAgent.app is enabled under Accessibility in the Security tab, when you got to the Displays Preferences the Airplay Display setting cannot be set to DisplayLink ("Could not connect to DisplayLink") and -- crucially -- the Arrangement tab of the Displays dialog does not appear! That leaves the MB16 stuck in mirroring mode, which…

  15. Mojave 10.4.4 + Drivers 5.1.1 can't drive 2nd display

    After updating to the latest 5.1.1 drivers, my 2nd monitor works properly to start. After rI disconnect, allow my laptop to go to sleep and then return, the 2nd monitor no longer functions :(

    The only work around at this time is to reboot which will allow me to use the 2nd display

  17. Hotkeys for screen rotation and other display functions

    Enable hotkeys for screen rotation (and other display functions). Other drivers use ctrl-alt-left and ctrl-alt-up (etc) to rotate the current screen, this should be available for DisplayLink as well. Phones and tablets have set the bar with seamless screen rotation, DisplayLink should support as near to this experience as possible.

  18. Engage the Linux Foundation to develop your drivers.

    The Linux Foundation is the place to get things into the kernel. They will help you integrate your hardware into the mainline kernel without compromising any internal IP you may be worried about. Its really the only way to get a driver working for any OS. Work with upstream not against it.

    This translates to Windows and OS X as well. I was frustrated getting my device working with Windows. Complete pain and not plug and play by any means. OS X Mojave doesn't work at all and Linux shows the same behaviour. Flickering on and off rapidly an when…

  19. add support for Ubuntu Touch

    Ubuntu Touch originally developed by canonical is still being developed by ubports.
    I believe it could benefit from display link technology for external display support
    it is currently based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and is pretty well supported
    it also uses an android container to interface with userspace drivers

  20. Post issues about Driver 5.1 for Apple OS Mojave

    My third monitor uses a USB 3.0 graphics adapter powered by DisplayLink. After downloading version 5.1 update, I no longer can enable Airplay feature and my third monitor requires unplugging (after awakening from sleep mode) and replugging into my Mac Mini to get a signal to the monitor. Suggestions??
