DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. Linux wayland support

    Displaylink does not seem to work with wayland yet, which is starting to be the standard, replacing Xorg, on linux soon:

    https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/WaylandByDefault
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayland_(display_server_protocol)

    Would be great if you could also support wayland!

  2. Add support for Ubuntu 16.10

    Ubutun 16.10 is just days away and the DisplayLink drivers don't work for it and cause X to crash.

  3. Support for LUTs

    I have a laptop connected with an external monitor through a USB dock. It seems that DisplayLink does not support LUT as the ICC profile creation software (XRite i1Profiler) cannot complete the ICC profile creation for the secondary monitor connected through the USB Dock. The software works fine if I connect the monitor directly to the laptop HDMI port.

  4. Please allow the DisplayLink Driver to be disabled.

    As someone who uses a dedicated GPU in alternation with the Integrated GPU. It is BEYOND frustrating when my Nvidia GPU will not switch on because of the DisplayLink driver software. There is no option in windows itself to turn it off, and there is nothing provided by DisplayLink either.

    It cripples productivity when I have to UNINSTALL the DL driver just to use my dedicated GPU.

    Please fix this before you guys release any additional updates as this has been going on for a LONG time now.

    I love my AOC usb monitor. It's great, only after I install…

    I’m marking this complete, as Windows 10 Anniversary update has the best compatibility for DisplayLink. This is due to a new interface for DisplayLink graphics developed between DisplayLink and Microsoft being available, as covered here:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/525125

    This thread is becoming a place for any user to post problems on Windows 10, hence marking it complete, rather than people expecting the problem they are seeing is being worked on. If you have problems getting the device to work on Windows 10, please refer to this article, and if this does not solve the issue, please contact us:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/942862

    The original idea for this was to improve application compatibility with DisplayLink on Windows 10 under the new architecture. This is something we are looking into, with Microsoft. It is caused because DisplayLink now appears as its own video driver, rather than part of existing video cards. This means applications that use a…

  7. Increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DP Driver 8.0 Update.

    I have increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink Driver 8.0 Update. I have a 3-screen Setup here. Surface Pro 3 + the DisplayLink USB Docking Station with 2 additional Screens. Working on those 2 external Screens got a bit tedious since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink 8.0 Update. Maybe I´m too sensitive, but I feel enough mouse lag on the external Screens to slow down my daily work a bit. I´m using the DisplayLink Adapter since 2 years now and there were highs and lows regarding lag, but Version 7.9 on Windows 10 1511 was really good.…

  8. 3 Monitor Support on Chrome OS

    As DisplayLink support is not embedded in the ChromeOS 51 build and later, you should add 3+ monitor support for ChromeOS. At this point someone would only be able to run it off of a Chromebook/Chromebox with higher ram (8-16GB+). But adding this support would mean A LOT more business use cases being satisfied.

    DisplayLink imposes no limit on the number of DisplayLink enabled displays that can be connected on Chrome OS from R51 onwards.

    Any limitations found will be OS restrictions rather than something added by DisplayLink.

  9. Make DisplayLink drivers work with suspend on Ubuntu

    My DisplayLink-attached screen went awry after resuming from suspend, and I see that it's a known issue. Not being able to use suspend on a laptop is a major loss of functionality for me.

  11. Fix your product links.

    Clicking on your link to the amazon page for the AOC e1659Fwux- Pro sends an infinite amount of links due to not having an H at the beginning of the web address in the code.

  12. TrayIcon should always display if installed

    Suggestion: The DisplayLink Manager TrayIcon should show even if the hardware is not detected. In that case, it should provide links to helpful KB articles (or better yet, include the troubleshooting steps offline).

    That would have saved me about three hours of troubleshooting a 3rd-party (LizTek) product before I finally stumbled on this site.

  14. Fix the Linux driver so that it doesn't use 5-15% CPU when my DisplayLink device is _unplugged_.

    When unplugged, I consistently (and continuously, not just short spikes) see the DisplayLinkManager process take up 5-15% CPU. I don't understand why it's using so much CPU when there's literally nothing for it to do. It's really hurting my battery life & performance.

  15. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    Will you be supporting Ubuntu 16.04 LTS? Got an ETA?
    It would be great if you would add/post a deb or even better a ppa site.

    Thanks,
    Dennis

  18. HI, Let customers decide WHEN to install new drivers. (Automatic driver update messes up my 4 + 1 monitor trading station.) Thanks.

    (the automatic updates re-arrange and resize everything on my screens causing me headache. The driver should be updater when no windows left opened / programmes running.)

  20. Driver Signing

    Your DisplayLink driver is unsigned. It won't work with 64bit Windows OS. I suggest fixing that if you want people to buy your product.
