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.

Hey DisplayLink, I really link what you're doing - it's generating some great products. I have recently purchased a AOC e1759fwu portable monitor to improve productivity in my workstation on-the-go. Unfortunately, I am a big fan of portrait orientation, which doesn't seem to be supported currently. I am a developer and look at lots of code/terminal stuff. Please can you up the priority of adding this functionality and also post an update on this thread - we need to know if this on your radar.
Keep up the good work! It's getting there! :)
This is very important to me. I need to be able to see large amounts of terminal output at once and I simply cannot do that with a landscape orientation.

Currently this limitation exists "Rotation is not supported due to missing functionality in the generic modesetting driver". I have a monitor that I only use in portrait so this prevents me from fully moving to Linux.
