    • Latest Ubuntu 17.04 driver works fine on 18.04

      You can update the driver page to list the latest driver as compatible with 18.04. I just installed it fresh, and with apt-get dkms, it works perfectly without any configuration necessary. Thanks for supporting Ubuntu!

        • Mac OS Driver

          Hello,
          It has been months now and you have not released a driver for extended desktop for Mac. I have purchased 25 docking stations for my employees and they are useless until you release the driver. What is the ETA?

              • Driver Download

                Not enough bandwidth, At work with dedicated fiber line so speed and bandwidth is not the issue on our side. Trying to download a some what smaller 47 MB driver should not take 30 Min's or more!!!!!!! Need more bandwidth or web-hosting servers to speed up the process of downloading a simple driver

                • Work on compatibility w/ Ableton Live 10 (current version crashes Live)

                  I'm running MacOS 10.13.3 (downgraded from 10.13.4 for reasons that I'm sure you know) on a MacBook Air (13-Inch Mid 2011, 1.8Ghz Core i7, 4 GB RAM) and whenever I have any of your latest (e.g. most recent final releases, two most recent "Betas" to fix the issue with MacOS 10.13.4) it causes Ableton Live 10 (10.0.1) to not load/run.

                  The main reason that my computer system and I have a DisplayLink in my environment is for making music. I use the two screen setup while working with Live to have my AU and VST plugins visible while tracking. Without…

                  • 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?

                    • Ultrawide resolutions on Android

                      HI! I really love this app, truly works like a charm. I have a galaxy S8 and an ultrawide monitor. Unfortunately the app only transmints in 16:9 so there are black edges all around the image, even up and down. It would be really nice to fix it, but still, this is a great app. Hope it gets in soon. Good luck!

                      • Photoshop CC2018 borks Display Link 4.25, causes restart, re-login.

                        I suggest you follow up on Adobe's unannounced trashing of Display Link with the CC2018 release of Photoshop.

                            • This has allowed me to get both external monitors in "extended" mode

                              Try this

                              1- shut down your MB

                              4- after it's up and you've logged in first plug in the the display port adapter and wait for the monitor to come online it should be an extension, not mirror of the MB monitor
                              5-plug in the USB adapter and it should mirror the MB display, though at a lower resolutions than the other external monitor.
                              6- DO NOT CLOSE THE MB. If you do it will create a mirror to both monitors if you do

                              • 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.

                                • Create the ability to defined "docked" vs "undocked" profiles for the USB docking station

                                  In older versions of Windows there use to be a capability to have different profiles for a "docked" PC and an "unlocked" PC. This would be a great capability for you to add into your product since it is now a corporate mandate.

                                  My main issue is that I set up my desktop the way I like it and then when I either connect the USB or disconnect the USB all my settings are lost and I can't find my desktop icons anymore. This is a negative impact on my productivity.

                                    • Issues with OSX using 802.1x using System Keychain

                                      We just deployed a few hundred of these devices (The Dell D6000)and the OSX devices will not use the system keychain to authenticate to 802.1x, This works properly with the onboard NIC, Apple USB-C Adapter, Belkin USB-C Adapter.

                                      We use an OSX Profile that states how to connect to 802.1x with ethernet using system credentials. This does not work with the Displaylink Dock. I can however manually input credentials manually and it works, but no user accounts are allowed to authenticate only machine accounts.

                                      • Please use versioning format x.x.xx instead of x.x (xx)

                                        We are trying to automate software updates and track inventory of DisplayLink drivers in our macOS environment. Trying to parse versions when the value reports as `4.1 (11)` or `DisplayLink Driver 4.1.11 - Copyright 2003...` makes it difficult.

                                        In the driver Info.plist file, please set the `CFBundleShortVersionString` key in the x.x.xx format. Even better, clean up the `CFBundleGetInfoString`
