  2. Ubuntu driver: using dlm.service is rather unfortunate for a clash with dlm cluster control daemon

    See:
    https://pagure.io/dlm/blob/master/f/init/dlm.service

    It would be better if it could fail with an error in case the file already
    exists and is not authentic (from previous installation).

    Thanks for considering.

  3. macOS 10.13.6 works with airplay, but multiple users cannot set display.

    Using the UD3900 dock with macOS 10.13.6 works. I have set up multiple accounts to isolate data for enhanced security. All users have mirroring, but only the first user logged in can set the resolution. The subsequently logged in users have the same resolution as the laptop.

    Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a reason or fix?

  4. Clone graphic card's monitor to USB DL monitor

    Hello,
    I am using three monitor displays, connected to one graphic card. It works fine. But additionally I plan to connect the fourth USB monitor, using DisplayLink utility. I need to obtain the clone of one of these three monitors to this USB one (DL). Unfortunately, the Actual Multiple Monitors soft does not allow to do it. What I can do?

  7. Intellij stuttering on Displaylink when opening

    Opening Intellij IDEA (and maybe other IDEs from Jetbrains) or a file in that IDE makes the output stutter a bit. It happens on every opening action

    The whole display, including the mouse pointer, stutters for a few seconds

  11. Xrandr panning on Linux

    I have a 12inch 2880x1920 monitor (eDP-1) and a 21inch (eDP-1) with a 1920x1080 native res. I tried to use

    xrandr --fb 6720x2160 --output DVI-I-2-2 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of eDP-1 --scale 2x2 --panning 3840x2160+2880+0

    and I got:

    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
    Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 29 (RRSetPanning)
    Serial number of failed request: 46
    Current serial number in output stream: 46

    I have an Asus t303ua
    with:
    VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 520 (rev 07) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    Is there a plan to support panning in…

  13. DON'T UPDATE TO macOS 10.13.4

    Idea?
    DON'T UPDATE TO macOS 10.13.4 and DON'T use the DisplayLink Instaler 4.1.11 ... until they will have something which will work.
    I cannot get now even a single video at all ! Just a blank black screen!
    So how can I go back to 10.13.3 and uninstal the DisplayLink if I don't see anything on a screen? Any suggestions? Anyone?

  16. Support Night Shift and f.lux for Mac OS

    As documented, there is work underway for Windows to support f.lux. However, I haven't seen any clear communication that support Night Shift of f.lux on Mac OS is in the works as neither are supported via DisplayLink. It would be really nice to have these options on Mac.

  18. Make the Linux driver open source and get it into the kernel

    If the DisplayLink driver existed in the kernel, it would be SO much easier for the users to get it working. In my role as Chief Digital Officer for a large company (of 8000 people), I would probably have bought 500 of these devices IF the driver were just upstream (you know, how Linux devices normally "just work" without the aggro common in the Windows world). However, the annoyance of a manual driver install, especially when it's broken on updates to newer kernels, is just something I wouldn't want to invest in. Please consider that proprietary drivers are serious impediment…
