Flux will reduce the amount of blue light emitted by the screen which aids going to bed. As it stands, there is no support for color calibration to DisplayLink connected monitors. DCC/CI commands are supported, but there are issues that make it not a viable solution (http://superuser.com/questions/257606/is-there-a-work-around-to-configure-brightness-or-color-on-a-displaylink-monitor).896 votesStarted · AdminAlban Rampon (Product Manager, USB Docking and Graphics Adapters, DisplayLink) responded
The new estimate of delivery for f.lux, night mode, and monitor calibration on Windows 10 Creators Update onwards is for release 9.0, planned before the end of 2018. When a 9.0 Alpha or Beta is issued, you will be able to try the feature on products based on the DL-3000, DL-5000 and DL-6000 series ASICs.
f.lux has enabled some support for DisplayLink indirect displays (Windows 10)
You can download f.lux from https://justgetflux.com/
Contact Canonical to make DisplayLink driver available for installation and update from Ubuntu repository, like AMD and nVidia driver packages.409 votes
If the DisplayLink driver existed in the kernel, it would be SO much easier for the users to get it working. In my role as Chief Digital Officer for a large company (of 8000 people), I would probably have bought 500 of these devices IF the driver were just upstream (you know, how Linux devices normally "just work" without the aggro common in the Windows world). However, the annoyance of a manual driver install, especially when it's broken on updates to newer kernels, is just something I wouldn't want to invest in. Please consider that proprietary drivers are serious impediment to sales, and just work with a willing community upstream.

Displaylink does not seem to work with wayland yet, which is starting to be the standard, replacing Xorg, on linux soon:
Would be great if you could also support wayland!265 votes
Work for Wayland has now started. The development is now focusing on working with upstream to extend GNOME’s compositor, Mutter, to support hot-pluggable secondary displays, which will allow DisplayLink drivers to work with GNOME on Wayland.
The GNOME release that is likely to include the necessary changes would be the next stable release, 3.32.
support displaylink with proprietary drivers from nvidia and amd215 votes
This is on the backlog of Linux work, but is possible to be addressed by the community.
It is possible the issue could be fixed with changes to the EVDI driver, which is an open source component available on github here:
As documented, there is work underway for Windows to support f.lux. However, I haven't seen any clear communication that support Night Shift of f.lux on Mac OS is in the works as neither are supported via DisplayLink. It would be really nice to have these options on Mac.211 votes
Currently unsupported / broken in DisplayLink on Linux:
- Display mirroring
- Display scaling
- Display rotation
This really limits what you can actually do with DisplayLink on Linux - i.e. you can only currently have an extended display activated with no scaling or rotation. You can't even use only the DisplayLink connected display on its own.208 votes
Better Linux support, a direct driver for X11 and support ARM devices and not crypted logs.147 votes
EVDI is designed as an open source component to be adapted for different graphics architectures.
It is possible to already use DisplayLink on some embedded ARM platforms, as complied binaries are available in our distribution. Articles on how to do this on Raspian and Ubuntu MATE are here:
The logs from the DisplayLink binary component are encrypted to protect IP. This is the same on all OSes for DisplayLink binary components.
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. Now with the new Windows / Driver Version (and the new Driver model?) it got worse.

The change is needed in the operating system kernel mode graphics driver. Microsoft has now planned this development for a Windows 10 future release.
In the meantime, provided you have purchased a platform allowing you to, the workaround is to disable the low end GPU so Windows uses the only one left. Today, Windows will always use the POST graphics card.
I have actually a very slow PC because of this:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
1541 root 20 0 2343424 51804 2624 S 111.9 1.4 198:49.14 DisplayLinkMana
in other words, DisplayLinkMana(ger) eats a lot of CPU. from 50 to more than 100%
I think this is an issue, that should be fixed.
Scaling doesn't work with the linux DisplayLink driver. This makes it impossible to use displays of different DPI together. By scaling I mean, for example:
xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --auto --scale 2x286 votes
For DL-3xxx and DL-5xxx devices especially.
This is already working for MacOS but not working for Windows (as mentioned in DisplayLink KB 544870) and Linux.
This will allow multiple DisplayLinks to be used on single VM hosts behaving like thin clients, which is an enormous user base and thus market potential.67 votes
UPDATE macOS, abandon this unstable and insecure devices instead. Apple says DisplayLink is incorrect and opens you to a world of security flaws. I can open a port on the Ethernet using simple SSH commands that shouldn’t be that easy.
You advise not to update. Apple says the opposite and you are misleading customers into possible security issues. Reported and under review by Apple. Good luck, you have truly done your Apple patrons wrong in more than one way.
If you can’t build an alpha in a year, this beta should land about the same time I land on mars.57 votes
Add screen rotation to Android client. I have a display link monitor than can be turned to portrait mode. But, by default, my device displays in a box unless I turn the device to landscape... It then fills the screen. I would ask that the app allow me to hold the phone in portrait and display to my portrait monitor full screen. It does display correctly for a short time before rotating fully.55 votes
Allow gamma custom ranges in the Ubuntu driver to allow for night time color changes software to work (f.lux, Redshift, etc...)
Gamma color calibration seems to be unavailable for the Displaylink on Ubuntu.
Allowing it will enable night time screen color changing software to work and also allow manual customization with xrandr commands.42 votes

there seems to be a need for better icc color profiles for mac. i'm using asus mb169b+ portable monitor and the colors are not very good. there is a real problem with the subtile greys, they are not getting displayed.

We just deployed a few hundred of these devices (The Dell D6000)and the OSX devices will not use the system keychain to authenticate to 802.1x, This works properly with the onboard NIC, Apple USB-C Adapter, Belkin USB-C Adapter.
We use an OSX Profile that states how to connect to 802.1x with ethernet using system credentials. This does not work with the Displaylink Dock. I can however manually input credentials manually and it works, but no user accounts are allowed to authenticate only machine accounts.29 votes
