Linux wayland support
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!
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.
What about kwin?
Another, unrelated, question... will a usb2 connection suffice for the docking station? :)

I really need this. hope to see this working soon
Hi, thank you for the effort. Will this also work with KWin ?
Fantastic! How is this coming along?
Cool guys! Happy to hear it. I hope it doesn't take too long
Excellent. Glad to hear it.
Glad it's started!
I would like to use my DisplayLink adapter with Wayland. How the development is going?
Wayland support is in the works, as per:
Puts back in box. Returns to amazon.

+1 for this, I am unfortunately going to have to return my new ASUS MB169B.
Mir is dead and Ubuntu is moving to Gnome and Wayland. Wayland support will be necessary sooner rather than later.
Will you be supporting Ubuntu 17.04 ?

Wayland is not just a thing now, it's pretty much the default path of the majority of distributions for all recent laptops.
You should port DisplayLink to Wayland or this technology will become irrelevant.

yeah. I'm using gnome on wayland and it did not recognize my third display. Please add support driver for wayland.
