  4. 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.

  5. Can you fix the issue with dual graphics cards?

    I have had a problem with your displaylink products for months now, it's causing my entire OS to hand. It seems I'm not the only one, I found the below forum post showing multiple people have the same issue.
    http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=63963

    I've tried cleanups, reinstalling the latest drivers and all I could think of. The only way I can get the system to stop crashing is if I always reboot my PC right after I disconnect display link each and every time which is ridiculous. I wouldn't buy a laptop if I wanted to reboot 5 times a day.

    There is…

  7. Windows 10 with 7.9M3 (Yoga 900)

    When windows 10 with 7.9M3 on a yoga 900 goes to sleep and is connected to the dock, it doesn't come back.

    Also, if I unplug the dock when the laptop sleeps, when I wake it up nothing works anymore.

  9. Linux kernel version 4 unsupported.

    Just tried building the displaylink driver using the displaylink-installer.sh on my Fedora Rawhide machine and look at the results!

    ./displaylink-installer.sh -?
    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.

    It is possible to use product relying on the DisplayLink DL-6950 ICs before the OS loads provided the UEFI BIOS includes, or the pre-OS side loads, the DisplayLink UEFI GOP driver. The driver is available to all laptop manufacturers. We encourage you to ask for this functionality from your laptop vendor so they inbox it.

  12. 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.

  13. Bring back the forum link under Driver Downloads.

    This product poses difficulties on nearly all platforms and your users need a place to discuss this and collaborate. Your attempt to remove the forums (that still exist at http://www.displaylink.org/forum/) has not gone unnoticed, and at face value appears to be a step in the wrong direction.

    From the top of this page: "However members of the DisplayLink team are active on the DisplayLink Forum, where your question may already be answered."

  14. Update Monitors Page

    http://www.displaylink.com/shop/monitors

    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?

    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.

  15. Use GPU rendering to lower CPU usage

    Can we access the GPU to take advantage of OpenGL, etc, to avoid the heavy CPU (and laptop battery) usage?

    DisplayLink software already checks the CPU and GPU resources available on a platform and uses these to provide the best user experience possible.

    This is why some compatibility issues can be resolved by updating to the latest graphics drivers available for your primary graphics card,

  16. 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.

  19. Don't require drivers to be installed for disabled display adapters

    I have a machine with an integrated display adapter and a PCI adapter running Windows 10. The integrated controller is not supported by Windows 10 and I have disabled it using device manager (I don't have an option to disable it in BIOS). When I attempt to install the DisplayLink core software, it re-enables the disabled adapter and then tells me it cannot install the software because there are no drivers for the adapter that I had disabled.
