        Unfortunately solution provided to disable "suspend on idle" did not resolve issue,
        #### Disable audio suspend
        * `sudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa`. Comment out the line indicated below.

        ```
        ### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long
        # load-module module-suspend-on-idle
        ```

        Have two ThinkVision HDMI monitors connected by Displaylink, neither is detected.

        Display-Link does not detect connected monitors on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. I used displaylink-driver-4.4.24.run.

        Solution found on the forum for those who have problems with monitors that goes on sleep mode randomly :

        #### Disable audio suspend
        * `sudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa`. Comment out the line indicated below.

        ```
        ### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long
        # load-module module-suspend-on-idle
        ```

        DisplayLink 4.4 is not working on Ubuntu 18.04! I tried several times but without success.

        Hi,
        I have the same problem whit the backouts. It randomly turn out the monitors and I have to reconnect the device. (I use DELL - notebook, monitors and dockStation) Can you please help me?

      • John commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Same problem here. Screens turn off randomly on ubuntu 18.10. Have to disconnect and reconnect the device. Very annoying.

      • Yulia Guskova commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I installed last version of driver. And my screens turn black from time to time. What should I do?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Could you please tell us when do you plan to release a version for Ubuntu 18.10 ?

        it's not working for me. it fails when I run the .run file. at dlm service start up. Any suggestions?

        Thank you @Ablan, this is great news!
        @C.Rogers, I installed but wherever my cursor is it freezes that portion of the image so that when I scroll a little box approx 50x50p stays put until i move it. I also experience an issue where the screens will go black for no reason. Hoping an official ubuntu driver will fix these issues.

        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...

      • Tobias Johansson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.
