  1. DL main display for Raspbian

    Add drivers for ARM, and specifically for Raspbian. Make the drivers work over HDMI instead of (or in addition to) working over USB.

      • Provide Mac kext information for enterprise deployment.

        Useful if you published the TEAM ID and KERNEL EXTENSION BUNDLE ID for enterprise deployment. We can track it down but it would be nice to have that information included and easily visible. Thanks.

                Dear DisplayLink macOS users,

                We are pleased DisplayLink 5.0.1 driver for macOS enables multiple extended display support on the latest Apple macOS 10.14.2 with additional features (clamshell and clone). We continue our strong support for the Mac platform and are working on delivering future updates with further performance improvements.
                Driver 5.0.1: https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1257

                If your DisplayLink enabled device does not seem to work on 10.14, this is most likely due to the OS blocking our kernel extension. Please ensure our kernel extension is enabled by the OS as described in our FAQ: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1188004

                Should you still miss extended displays on latest macOS with latest DisplayLink driver, please create a support ticket so your particular case can be investigated. Here is how: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/755301

                Due to changes in 10.13.4-10.13.6, it is not possible to enable DisplayLink extended displays, except one using Apple AirPlay. If your Mac is from 2011 running 10.13.4-10.13.6 and…

                • Stop Recommending to disable Windows Update

                  Do not recommend installing the msi version of DisplayLink Drivers and then disabling Windows Update. I don't think a vendor should be recommending to customers to turn off Windows Update. DisplayLink should work out a way of getting the 2 working together. Happy to discuss further.

                  • Issue Logging tool for Displaylink

                    Considering that displaylink is growing in our company we are facing more complications with Displaylink not working on particular models very well like MS surface devices. But it is also now happening to our Dell estate. So maybe DisplayLink can come with a logging tool so that when it is used it creates a dump which we can pass on to help get an answer from you quicker.

                      • Have an exit button on the "displaylink manager software".

                        No need to explain more, its a basic and simple requirement. I want to exit the application when i am not using it. "DisplayLink manager" application is now like some malware which does not allow you to close it.

                            • Some applications detect DisplayLink as incompatible display driver. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik

                              When using DisplayLink some applications show incompatible display driver error. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik on Windows 10 and I'think at last since version 8 of drivers. Solution is to open them on laptop screen and then switch to displays connected via DisplayLink (in my case i-tec USB 3.0 docking station). It would be nice if it could be solved.

                              • Monitors randomly blacking out - SOLVED

                                If your monitors are blacking out using your DisplayLink D3100 check your chair.

                                I was having issues with my dual monitors randomly blacking out. After updating s/w, drivers and replacing the D3100 nothing worked.

                                As strange as it sounds, I was finally able to determine the cause was my chair. I have documented this in two videos.

                                  • Resolve the compatibility issue with Duet Display, Twomon, Spacedesk, etc.

                                    After I purchased a USB Type C dock driven by DisplayLink technology for my laptop, a big issue derived: every time I want to use Duet Display with my iPad Pro or Twomon USB with my Pixel C, I would have to uninstall the DisplayLink driver before I plug any of my tablets. When I get home and try to connect to my dock, I would have to go through the setup process again. This is just a big inconvenience for people like me.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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…
