      • Linux: reach Windows feature parity (mirroring, scaling, and rotating)

        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.

        • Support Night Shift and f.lux for Mac OS

          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.

              I’ve updated this to be for ARM Linux support. EVDI is designed as an open source component to be adapted for different graphics architectures.

              The logs from the DisplayLink binary component are encrypted to protect IP. This is the same on all OSes for DisplayLink binary components.

            • Fix linux driver scaling

              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 2x2

              • Add support for VMware USB passthrough so guest OS can have dedicated display output

                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.

                • Android portrait

                  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.

                  • better mac icc profiles for monitors

                    hi!

                    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.

                    hopefully there will be something done about this.

                    • Not working on ubuntu 16.04

                      After I upgraded to 16.04 LTS, I could not use my DisplayLinks graphics/ethernet adapter for graphics (ethernet works fine). I recently installed the newest driver (1.2.65) but I get this error:

                      Warning: dlm.service changed on disk. Run 'systemctl daemon-reload' to reload units.
                      Job for dlm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status dlm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

                      I run journalctl as suggested by the error message and here is what I get:

                      26 16:27:28 myhost systemd[1]: Starting DisplayLink Manager Service...

                          • add brightness support to non-windows OSes

                            It's stated in the documentation that color correction and brightness do not work. I'm mostly interested in controlling the birghtness - is display link working on these features for non-windows OSes?

                                • Connecting via Cat6 instead of USB3

                                  Would be nice to rackmount a few of my PCs in the garage and just gave displaylink devices on the desks kinda like dumb terminals. 3m USB 3 cable limit doesnt allow for this. Maybe its possible with usb extenders. But to get the hot and loud gaming PC's out of the rooms will be a win.

                                  • See all dockingstations of same type as same device

                                    Hi!

                                    We have installed a multitude of workstations with the same type of DisplayLink docking station. When moving from one station to another, the monitor settings are "forgotten" and the new Dell D6000 is seen as a completely new device, and new drivers and settings for monitors, network and usb are needed to be configured.

                                    Therefore I suggest making it possible to have the driver think that all docks of the same type is also the same device. This will make this problem go away.

                                    Thanks
                                    Patrik

                                      • Create the ability to defined "docked" vs "undocked" profiles for the USB docking station

                                        In older versions of Windows there use to be a capability to have different profiles for a "docked" PC and an "unlocked" PC. This would be a great capability for you to add into your product since it is now a corporate mandate.

                                        My main issue is that I set up my desktop the way I like it and then when I either connect the USB or disconnect the USB all my settings are lost and I can't find my desktop icons anymore. This is a negative impact on my productivity.

                                        • Enable 4K HDR support to TV's for extended display use when viewing High End Photographs in Capture One or other Photo Edditing software

                                          A large number of Photographers are using high end Cameras capable of recording 16 bits per pixel HDR. There are also a large number of 4K HDR TV's being sold but they only display Jpeg format at 8 bits per pixel. It would be fantastic to have a device that would bring these technologies together so people could use their TV's to view and or edit their HDR photographs properly on a 4K HDR device.
