Make DisplayLink driver available for installation and update from Ubuntu repository
Contact Canonical to make DisplayLink driver available for installation and update from Ubuntu repository, like AMD and nVidia driver packages.
As a long-time software developer for high-performance computation,
I agree with the other posters about the desirability of making your support
code fit in with the rest of the Linux world. A .deb file would achieve this goal
for very little effort on your part.
I also heard that your software violates/violated the GPL in some way,
and that you still have blobs of secret code in the compression area.
These problems may have been resolved by now, but if not, I recommend that
you do resolve them, to be a better member of the community.

And by extension for Linux Mint or any other Debian distro.

it would also make a lot more sense to provide the software as a .deb file, instead of some executable .run file that does not cooperate with the system's package manager at all. it would also allow for much easier removal and upgrades of the software.
I would like to use one your USB portable monitors with a System 76 Meerkat mini-computer.
