  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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

  6. Conflicts using Nvidia Prime, Displaylink and Ubuntu

    I would like to describe conflicts using Nvidia Prime, Displaylink and Ubuntu in my experience.

    My environment: Ubuntu 18.10, Nvidia GTX 1070 (nvidia-driver-415), Displaylink 5.1, Asus MB168B+ (USB monitor), laptop Gigabyte Aero15x.

    If I try to login with nvidia profile activated and anything connected in USB ports (even only a mouse), I will face a login loop. It only will stop after disconnecting all USB devices, restarting the system and then I'll be able to login into my Ubuntu. Once logged in, I can connect my USB devices and use everything included my second monitor.

    If I try to login…

  8. Clone graphic card's monitor to USB DL monitor

    Hello,
    I am using three monitor displays, connected to one graphic card. It works fine. But additionally I plan to connect the fourth USB monitor, using DisplayLink utility. I need to obtain the clone of one of these three monitors to this USB one (DL). Unfortunately, the Actual Multiple Monitors soft does not allow to do it. What I can do?

  9. Fix glitching mouse pointer in Ubuntu/Arch/Debian

    Hi,
    I've tried the DisplayLink driver using the recommended os (Ubuntu 16.04). After connecting a secondary display (1080p) using USB-C, I had a trail of blinking mouse pointers following the real one and all the animations started glitching.

    When moving the mouse over any Window except the Desktop, there would be a glitching square (about double the edge length of the mouse pointer sprite) containing the desktop background around the mouse pointer.

    I've also tried Arch Linux (using the AUR package) and Debian 9 (Using the Ubuntu package) and they show the exact same behavior.
    On the three operating systems,…

  11. Ubuntu driver: using dlm.service is rather unfortunate for a clash with dlm cluster control daemon

    See:
    https://pagure.io/dlm/blob/master/f/init/dlm.service

    It would be better if it could fail with an error in case the file already
    exists and is not authentic (from previous installation).

    Thanks for considering.

  13. Xrandr panning on Linux

    I have a 12inch 2880x1920 monitor (eDP-1) and a 21inch (eDP-1) with a 1920x1080 native res. I tried to use

    xrandr --fb 6720x2160 --output DVI-I-2-2 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of eDP-1 --scale 2x2 --panning 3840x2160+2880+0

    and I got:

    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
    Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 29 (RRSetPanning)
    Serial number of failed request: 46
    Current serial number in output stream: 46

    I have an Asus t303ua
    with:
    VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 520 (rev 07) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    Is there a plan to support panning in…

  15. Enable HDCP protected content playback on macOS (iTunes)

    Hi,

    I had to downgrade to Sierra 10.12.6 because of the multi-monitor incompatibility of Displaylink 10.13.4. I need my multi monitor setup. But the truth is that Displaylink 4.1, which is compatible with Sierra 10.12.6, deactivate iTunes movies. Here is the message:

    The selected display won't play on one of your connected displays

    This movie can be played only on displays that support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). Try moving the iTunes window to a different display. Make sure the entire window is on the supported display.

    When I remove Displaylink from OSX 10.1206, iTunes movie start to plays back.…

  19. 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…

  20. 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!
