Support Ubuntu 18.04
Any idea when support will be coming for this?

Any official update planned for Ubuntu 18.04?
Sure, that's very easy. We worked with Google and are inboxed in Chrome OS images which are centrally managed. Ubuntu doesn't work like that.

Did someone could explain why DisplayLink works out of the box with ChromeBit device (for example), but it is pain in the a*s in Ubuntu...

Installing the DisplayLink Driver using this github project, as noted by Michael, worked for me on Ubuntu 18.04!

My screens also turns black several times per days with DisplayLink on Ubuntu 18.04. Simultaneously also other connected devices lose connection with my laptop. The driver seems to crash something in the kernel.
I had the same issues on Ubuntu 18.04 (after using the script https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian). I plug my external monitor with a VGA chord, it works 5 minutes than the external monitor turns black and the displaylink does not appear when I write lsusb -d 17e9: in a shell. However, the usb plugs still works. Moreover, the ethernet connection does not work.
The -utopic suffix refers to the code name of Ubuntu 14, you should try with `-bionic` for Ubuntu 18.
sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-lts-utopic libegl1
-mesa-drivers-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-utopic

I haven't been able to get DisplyLink monitors to work on a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04. But I am using Wayland as the standard Gnome 3 isn't working at all for me, just gives me a blank screen...
It existe one solution, follow this tutorial and install her script " https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian "
Don't forget to attibute execute at your scipt befor installation with " sudo chmod +x ./displaylink-debian.sh "
I hope it will help and sorry for my approximative english. ;)
Fresh install of 18.04 doesn't work with the 4.2 drivers. Check the forums for details.
I upgraded to 18.04 from 17.10 and the driver worked without reinstall for 3 external monitors on Dell D3100 dock.
