Just tried building the displaylink driver using the displaylink-installer.sh on my Fedora Rawhide machine and look at the results!
DisplayLink Linux Software 1.0.68 install script called: -?
Distribution discovered: "Fedora release 24 (Rawhide)"
Unsatisfied dependencies. Missing component: Kernel version 4.2.0-0.rc5.git3.1.fc24.x86_64 is too old. At least 3.14 is required.
This is a fatal error, cannot install DisplayLink Linux Software.
Hmm, 4 is older than 3!?!? Who Knew?!?! Need to fix the script.4 votes
This should now be fixed in the latest Ubuntu release

This should be fixed in v7.9 software. There is a release candidate available here, which should fix the issue until the release is out..
Windows 10 gets released at the end of July. I am already using the Tech Review. There will be a big need and demand for a product like your to compatible with Windows 10 - even right now with those of us that have switched ove.32 votes
WIndows 10 is now supported from v7.9 software onwards. The driver is available from http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/downloads.php
All DisplayLink products supported under Windows 8 will work with Windows 10.
Many of the displaylink monitors listed on your page are no longer available. Can you mark them as such to make it easier for your customers?
Also, wouldn't it make sense to include the monitor SIZE in each description instead of making your customers search for them?3 votes
Thanks for the reminder. The monitors page is now updated to remove products that were no longer available.
We are looking at a redesign of the shop at the moment to allow product searches and adding a monitor size is something we could do at this point.
tell me how to send you the Support Files I collected with your Support Tool2 votes
The artciles describing how to collect the log files have now been updated with a contact email address to send the files to.
The V2.5 release is now available to support OS X 10.11.
The user guide said I could download it from this website and it is no where to be found. Waste of $602 votes
All generic software for DisplayLink devices can be downloaded here: http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/index.php
This link has now been added to the support homepage.
I just purchased a displaylink USB 3 based device; reading the forums I didn't pickup the difference between USB 2.0 being supported and USB 3.0 not being supported. This is nonsense. Content protection on the monitor, I don't care about being able to use protected content; I'd like to just be able to use the monitor I paid for. But no.
I think you should support Linux with USB 3.0 devices to use non-DRM content.576 votes
Ubuntu is now supported by DisplayLink and can be downloaded from here:
The Ubuntu driver is designed with open source components and packaging which enables it to be ported and distributed for other linux distros. DisplayLink does not intend to officially support more than Ubuntu. For more information, see our article here:
