DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. Update DisplayLink Driver for macOS to launch automatically and hidden

    Hello,

    We are finding that the autostart script is not bulletproof. Having this scripted along with our installation in JAMF is successful however if the automatic startup checkbox is accidentally unchecked by the user it will no longer be enabled for automatic startup. The humanscale dock is unusable unless the DisplayLink Manager is launched.

    Thank you,
    ~ Joe

  2. Support for Samsung's Dex and Huawei's Desktop mode Android

    Guys will be awesome that displaylink apps could take advantage of these features, they are already working desktop experiences for Android, we will only need you guys to support those functionalities over the wired connection instead just mirroring the phone.

  3. Enable Combine Displays functionality in the driver

    I have a Samsung Neo G9, which for some reason only came with 1 DP and 2 HDMIs. For gaming I use the DP, but for work I use the HDMIs. To get the full resolution (5120x1440) I run 2x HDMIs @ 2560x1440 via a DL-6950 dual HDMI solution from Plugable.

    The problem is it's one screen. So without this feature, dragging windows hits an invisible "wall" in the center of the screen, my start menu is offset or duplicated, and I can't maximize windows across the entire screen.

    With the Intel graphics center and the Intel GPU, I can…

  5. Manager / option for disable one of external monitor

    Hi,
    I am using HP G2 universal dock which support 2xDP and 1xHDMI.
    It would be great to control from app/manager enabling and disabling one of external monitor.
    I see it like available monitors list with checkbox (enabled/disabled) in DisplayLink Manager located in top bar - macOS.

  6. Implement Clamshell mode for Big Sur / M1 Chip

    I cannot run external displays while in clamshell mode on Big Sur, while the laptop is open it works perfectly fine.

    The second you close the laptop and enter clamshell mode you lose signal to your external displays.

    This has issue has over 450 votes and has been an issue since August 2020, how long do we have to wait for this to be implemented or is there any work arounds that are currently working?

    This is a major issue that is affecting thousands of users, we haven't had any update since November.... Will this ever be fixed?

  7. Fix the EXTREME Mouse Lag after updating to Big Sur (MacOS)

    I thought it's my system so I kept on restarting my system but then realized it's the DisplayLink driver after I updated to Big Sur. Any idea of when it's getting fixed.

  8. ICC support on BigSur and Intel macs

    As of now there's a littl quirk in the way DL manages screens and icc profiles. On my M1 11.6 macOS my screens are detected in ColorSync. Thus I can use ICC profiles for calibration. On my work intel 11.6 macOS the screens are not detected. This is weird considering that DisplayLink caters to the "pro" community. As of now I have o idead what profile my INTEL is using thus making my color critical work laptop slightly useless.

    But, why is the M1 seeing them? I would expect that this would be a problem on M1s not INTEL.

  11. screen not detected with 10.1 M2 Win

    I updated my system from 10.1 M1 to 10.1 M2 (Win10, Plugable UD6950 USB3 dual 4K, BenQ 3440x1440) and the monitor was not longer detected, even after rebooting PC+dock.
    Fortunatly desinstalling M2 and reinstalling M1 solve the issue

  12. Option to disable the icon in the menu bar

    It would be good if you could configure to disable the icon of the DisplayLink manager in the menu bar (on macOS).

  13. Improve DisplayLink performance on macOS BigSur (11.1)

    I bought the "USB-C Universal Quad 4K (QV4K) Docking Station with 100W Power Delivery" ($500) and three 1440p displays ($1500) to find out my macbook-pro OS version (BigSur - 11.1) has unusable lag with DisplayLink... The mouse cursor is a jarring delay behind the inputs I give and swapping between application windows or workspaces has extreme tearing/stuttering.. looks like its running at about 5 FPS - this is on the recommended monitor resolution too

    Really disappointing DisplayLink

  14. Update DisplayLink Driver for M1 MacBook to auto start upon a restart.

    When DisplayLink is running on my MacBook Pro M1 (running 2 external monitors) all works well! However, when I restart my MacBook Pro, I have to unplug my Dell D6000 dock and replug it in to "kick on" the DisplayLink driver for the two external monitors to boot up and display the screen.

  15. macOS and M1/Intel: Add 1920x1080 hidpi (looks like 1920*1080) for QHD/2K monitors

    1920x1080 hidpi (looks like 1920*1080) support for QHD/2K monitors is useful, for both intel and apple silicons.

  16. Dual screen setup: Laggy vertical screen +DisplayLinkUser Agent eating 100% CPU with a MBP 2019 Intel

    Hello,

    I have 2 external monitor DELL AW2721D which are QHD (2x 2560x1440p). Both are plugged using HDMI. I can't close my MacBook Pro because you don't support clamshell on Intel Based MBP (sad). It's plugged on a StarTech Dual 4k universal docking station USB-C 100W.

    One is horizontal, the other is vertical (90° rotation).
    The horizontal screen position monitor runs smooth (moving windows around, moving cursor).

    PROBLEM: the rotated monitor (90°) is extremely laggy. Even moving the mouse feels laggy.

    I've noticed that DisplayLinkUser agent is eating up to 100% of the CPU when moving a windows in that…

  18. MacMini M1 with 11.2.2 (Bigsur) Displaylink not working

    Working with a Mac Mini M1 with Bigsur installed (11.2.2) with Displaylink 1.3 without success.
    The system works well with 2 monitors. I've tried several combinations: Using one hub and even using the USB-C port from a Blackmagic Ultrastudio mini. All connections from the Hub work (if only two monitors connected). Experimented with many different monitors and adapters USB-C -> VGA / USB-C -> HDMI / USB-C -> DVI. The displaylink is approved in the Privacy Settings (recording and acessibility).
    Tried also installing displaylink on a macbook intel and it seems that it does not work also. Although macbook intel…

  19. support close lid

    It would be great if you can implement support for the close lid, as this is available for the legacy driver, I'm not able to work on my Mac when the lid is closed and have to stick with old software to had that feature. On Display link Manager when you put a lid to close mode mac goes to sleep instead of turn off the internal monitor.

  20. Support both Xorg and Wayland with acceptable performance in Ubuntu 20.04

    The current released Ubuntu installer doesn't work in 20.04, which will be released in a couple of months as the next LTS release.
    If you hack the installer not to compile the kernel module, and instead use the kernel module and install the libevdi0 that ship with Ubuntu, then you can use DisplayLink under Wayland, but the performance is terrible -- significant lags in display updates and watching videos is impossible. And in this configuration DisplayLink doesn't work with Xorg at all.
    Please rectify this before 20.04 ships.
