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!

The development in GNOME compositor, mutter, has now reached a milestone that allows people use DisplayLink driver with Wayland if they have GNOME 3.32.1 installed. The packages for Ubuntu 19.04 are currently waiting in “disco-proposed” repository and they should be included in normal updates soon. Interested users are welcome to enable Proposed (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed) and upgrade libmutter and gir1.2-mutter packages. For more information about the final fix, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mutter/+bug/1826182

    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.
