DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. support close lid

    It would be great if you can implement support for the close lid, as this is available for the legacy driver, I'm not able to work on my Mac when the lid is closed and have to stick with old software to had that feature. On Display link Manager when you put a lid to close mode mac goes to sleep instead of turn off the internal monitor.

  2. When will displaylink support AMD cpu/gpu in Linux

    Currently displaylink-based docking stations and amgpus are not usable on Linux. The screen refresh lagging is horrible.

    Can you provide a plan when this will be fixed or at least make a proper disclaimer that Linux is not supprted. so people can spend their money on working products.

    Thanks.

  3. Ubuntu driver 5.3.1 bug

    You should correct the Ubuntu driver to create the support frame buffer /dev/fb1
    In the last version 5.3.1 installed in Ubuntu 20.04 it's not created.
    Without the /dev/fb1 is not possible to set up a multihead system with loginctl.

  4. Ubuntu 20.04 on MacBook Pro

    I upgraded from 18.04 and I couldn't get DisplayLink to work for several hours. I the end it I found I had to power-cycle the dock, and now all is OK

    (Except: this crept in during a kernel update on the previous OS -- If I disable the laptop's display, everything becomes really sluggish, so I keep it on)

  6. MacMini M1 with 11.2.2 (Bigsur) Displaylink not working

    Working with a Mac Mini M1 with Bigsur installed (11.2.2) with Displaylink 1.3 without success.
    The system works well with 2 monitors. I've tried several combinations: Using one hub and even using the USB-C port from a Blackmagic Ultrastudio mini. All connections from the Hub work (if only two monitors connected). Experimented with many different monitors and adapters USB-C -> VGA / USB-C -> HDMI / USB-C -> DVI. The displaylink is approved in the Privacy Settings (recording and acessibility).
    Tried also installing displaylink on a macbook intel and it seems that it does not work also. Although macbook intel…

  8. Make DisplayLink installer compatible with Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo)

    I'm testing the prerelease version of the next Ubuntu release, 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo). There are incompatibilities between 21.04 and the current Ubuntu DisplayLink release, and I wanted to bring them to your attention, in case you weren't already aware, ask whether you are aware of any workarounds, and ask what your timeline is for supporting 21.04.

    1) The evdi kernel module that ships with your DisplayLink installer does not compile under 21.04. I had to use the evdi module included with Ubuntu rather than the version that comes with your DisplayLink installer.

    2) It appears that if my DisplayLink hub…

  9. Update DisplayLink Driver for M1 MacBook to auto start upon a restart.

    When DisplayLink is running on my MacBook Pro M1 (running 2 external monitors) all works well! However, when I restart my MacBook Pro, I have to unplug my Dell D6000 dock and replug it in to "kick on" the DisplayLink driver for the two external monitors to boot up and display the screen.

  11. Enable visual accessibility settings for partially sighted users

    Both Windows & macOS have tools for applying colour filters to a screen to enable partially sighted users better access to these devices.

    These settings are enforced on monitors directly connected to theses devices and were previously supported on prior versions of DisplayLink when using a Mac but are not working currently.

    Is there a plan to leverage the built-in OS tools to enable this in the future?

  12. Dual screen setup: Laggy vertical screen +DisplayLinkUser Agent eating 100% CPU with a MBP 2019 Intel

    Hello,

    I have 2 external monitor DELL AW2721D which are QHD (2x 2560x1440p). Both are plugged using HDMI. I can't close my MacBook Pro because you don't support clamshell on Intel Based MBP (sad). It's plugged on a StarTech Dual 4k universal docking station USB-C 100W.

    One is horizontal, the other is vertical (90° rotation).
    The horizontal screen position monitor runs smooth (moving windows around, moving cursor).

    PROBLEM: the rotated monitor (90°) is extremely laggy. Even moving the mouse feels laggy.

    I've noticed that DisplayLinkUser agent is eating up to 100% of the CPU when moving a windows in that…

  13. Bring proper performant support for Linux on AMD Ryzen

    Hey,

    you released the last Linux driver update in May 2020 now it is Feb 2021. I would like to see here some major improvements as the driver doesn't full fill any needs.

    Linux is already a good platform and will be even more important in future, so please support this community as well.

    Or if you don't like Linux as a platform, then move all your servers either to Windows or Mac systems as well... hahahha

    Bye the way i am running a AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U with Radeon Graphics with Linux. sounds like it's an issue with…

  16. Fix the memory leak in driver 5.3.1 for Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS

    This DisplayLink driver will slowly and continuously cache RAM on the system. After about 12 hours, for me it'll consume nearly 8GB of RAM and force a restart. Rinse and repeat.

    Can confirm as no memory leak occurs when not using the dock.

  17. DisplayLink Manager app auto-start on MacOS 10.15.7

    I have been trying to get the new 1.2 display link graphics driver to work with my MBP Catalina10.5.7 and my Asus MB168+ monitor. I stumbled over the fact that it doesn't seem to auto open the driver unless you manually open it in Applications. Might be worth looking at ?

  18. Improve DisplayLink performance on macOS BigSur (11.1)

    I bought the "USB-C Universal Quad 4K (QV4K) Docking Station with 100W Power Delivery" ($500) and three 1440p displays ($1500) to find out my macbook-pro OS version (BigSur - 11.1) has unusable lag with DisplayLink... The mouse cursor is a jarring delay behind the inputs I give and swapping between application windows or workspaces has extreme tearing/stuttering.. looks like its running at about 5 FPS - this is on the recommended monitor resolution too

    Really disappointing DisplayLink

  19. MacOS: Menu bar switch for activating / deactivating the driver

    There are several occasions when I have to quit the DisplayLink driver app e.g. when I want to watch copy protected video content. Under MacOS there is a DisplayLink Icon in the menu bar. In order to temporarily disable the DisplayLink driver I have to quit the app. After that I have to start the driver all over again. That's not handsome.

    Suggestion:


    • Simple possibility to activate and deactivate the driver via the DisplayLink menu icon: New entries "Suspend DisplayLink driver" or "Resume DisplayLink driver".


    • Possbility to manage a list of apps: As soon as one of those apps will…
