DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. Make DisplayLink installer compatible with Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo)

    I'm testing the prerelease version of the next Ubuntu release, 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo). There are incompatibilities between 21.04 and the current Ubuntu DisplayLink release, and I wanted to bring them to your attention, in case you weren't already aware, ask whether you are aware of any workarounds, and ask what your timeline is for supporting 21.04.

    1) The evdi kernel module that ships with your DisplayLink installer does not compile under 21.04. I had to use the evdi module included with Ubuntu rather than the version that comes with your DisplayLink installer.

    2) It appears that if my DisplayLink hub…

  2. Fix DisplayLink driver so it works 100% with MacOS

    When I have only 1 external monitor connected to my M1 MacBook Pro and I'm not using DisplayLink, the "Remember Window Position" feature of the OS works as expected.
    With 2 external monitors (and the unfortunate necessity of DisplayLink), the Remember Window Position feature no longer works.
    Please fix the DisplayLink driver so it is effectively invisible to the OS and external monitors behave the same as they do without DisplayLink.

  3. Wacom display tablet on Android

    Using a DisplayLink dock I have connected a Wacom One Display Tablet to a Google Pixel 3a mobile running Android 12. I have used both the DisplayLink Presenter and Desktop app. The display works however, the stylus input, while recognized, is not calibrated for both portrait and landscape. When using a mouse, the pointer is displayed on the mobile screen but, not the external display.

  4. Persistent connection in clamshell mode

    When disconnecting (Apple M1) from a DisplayLink dock (Dell D6000) and reconnecting in clamshell mode, external displays are not recognised.

    The laptop screen needs to be opened out of clamshell mode and then closed again for the displays to be recognised. This extra step shouldn't be required.

  5. Update documentation for disabling PageFlip on Ubuntu

    The documentation at https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1181623-displaylink-ubuntu-driver-after-recent-x-upgrades suggests creating a configuration file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d, however configuration in this directory may be ignored in favor of user-specific config at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. See https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=198719 for an explanation.

  7. Have the ability to mix 3.5mm headphone jack with 3x 3.5mm surround audio jack via software

    My Toshiba Dynabook uses a DisplayLink-chipset for things like 1x 3.5mm headphone audio output (front) and 3x 3.5mm surround sound audio output (rear; 5.1). When setting Windows to 5.1 audio, the headphone-output only plays the stereo front audio. There should be an option inside the driver-software-interface to switch between different modes: a) headphones/surround are different audio devices, b) headphone should play all 5.1 sounds (the 3x rear audio jacks), c) the current way (just in case somebody wants it that way). Why? I see the headphone output as a way to seamlessly switch between loudspeakers and well quieter headphones. That's…

  8. 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.

    https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1964953-enabling-disabling-displaylink-manager-autostart-v

    Thank you,
    ~ Joe

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  18. 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

  20. 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
