Can’t unlock the MacBook Pro with Apple Watch while displaylink is active because the machine thinks the screen is being shared. Please implement a flag to the OS that displaylink is not screen sharing but is an authorized virtual display.142 votes

I have 3 different USB universal docks (Lenovo,IBM,Targus) and displays stopped working with the latest release of ChromeOS 86 on my Acer 714 Chhromebook. They all use DisplayLink.5 votes
The fix was done in Chrome OS 87 and now backported to 86. I recommend you check for updates and if the issue persists, please approach tech support via the contact icon

Thank you very much.
USB-C to USB-C adapter that adds video signal on the USB-C cable. Optionally it would be nice to add a USB-PD charging port on the adapter. Making all USB-C devices more equal.
This is an frustrating issue with flex offices and BYOD. We can fix it by using USB-C displays or docks, but not all devices have display output on USB-C. A solution like this would basically fix every laptop to become compatible with any USB-C display/hub/dock.3 votes
This is what DisplayLink technology allows you to do: adding display over USB-C or USB-A without needing the machine to have native DisplayPort output over USB-C.
USB-PD requires dedicated circuitry on the laptop and in the dock/adapter, which isn’t possible to retrofit. However, vendors like Targus have a solution where the dock can provide power over USB-C or proprietary laptop connector.
If I misunderstood your suggestion, please do not hesitate to comment.
Provide a driver and installation that cleanly installs the DisplayLink driver for release 20.04 LTS.
I have an entire department of engineers ready to migrate to 20.04 LTS.
Please also be more thorough in documenting the dependencies of the install script.64 votes
5.3 driver for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS available for download from: https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu. Installation article updated accordingly.
The macOS App driver does not allow me to operate on external monitors with the laptop closed. I had to uninstall the driver and reinstall the one from November to be able to work in clamshell mode. This is glitchy in the old driver, often freezing my computer. I was hoping to see this stabilize so I wouldn't have to restart so often (almost every time I disconnect my laptop from the docking station).1,069 votes
macOS 12 Monterey is now released and addresses the clamshell / lid closed use case on Intel macbook computers.
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,
DL-6xxx series numbering was kept in line with previous generation numbering to ease understanding. DL-6910 is a chip set (see DL-5910). Number is not a measure of performance.
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.45 votes
Rotation on macOS 10.15 Catalina is available via the classic driver available in the download section, in Legacy Releases.
DisplayLink Manager app v1.1+ offers rotation on macOS 11 Big Sur onwards.

Now power delivery is working unstable.
I have a dell d6000 dock. After update to Catalina and upgrade to latest displaylink driver my macbook can suddenly stop having power delivery from dock.
Please enable power delivery, or disable it. I want stable environment.1 vote
The power delivery part of the dock is not part of the DisplayLink driver, but there is a firmware update (version A03) available for the dock from Dell which has fixed this for users that have contacted us with a similar issue:

You can now use 5120×1440p60 displays with a single DisplayPort cable on DL-6000 based products. This is supported on Windows driver release 10.0 (and newer) and macOS app release 1.2 (and newer).

This is addressed moving forward via the macOS app with features being added currently.
The macOS app (1.x+) is replacing the classic driver with kernel extensions (5.×.x).

Is it possible for a uEFI BIOS driver to use the DisplayLink VGA Output as the primary video output starting from BIOS?3 votes
It is possible to use product relying on the DisplayLink DL-6950 ICs before the OS loads provided the UEFI BIOS includes, or the pre-OS side loads, the DisplayLink UEFI GOP driver. The driver is available to all laptop manufacturers. We encourage you to ask for this functionality from your laptop vendor so they inbox it.

DisplayLink does work on Mojave with v5.x or later. If you are still having issues, make sure that the DisplayLink kernel extension is enabled as described here:
If the kext is enabled and it is still not working, please send us a message through the “Contact Us” form on this site. We can’t support you properly through the comments system here.
Add drivers for ARM, and specifically for Raspbian. Make the drivers work over HDMI instead of (or in addition to) working over USB.1 vote
ARM 32 bit binary is included in 4.4.
That’s not an actively supported platform though, due to the low level of requests. HDMI input in DisplayLink isn’t technically possible today.
