DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. DL main display for Raspbian

    Add drivers for ARM, and specifically for Raspbian. Make the drivers work over HDMI instead of (or in addition to) working over USB.

  3. Provide Mac kext information for enterprise deployment.

    Useful if you published the TEAM ID and KERNEL EXTENSION BUNDLE ID for enterprise deployment. We can track it down but it would be nice to have that information included and easily visible. Thanks.

  5. Linux wayland support

    Displaylink does not seem to work with wayland yet, which is starting to be the standard, replacing Xorg, on linux soon:

    https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/WaylandByDefault
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayland(displayserver_protocol)

    Would be great if you could also support wayland!

    Marking completed with Windows 10 v1903 with KB4512941 (OS Build 18362.329) or newer (end of August 2019 patch).
    Thank you all for confirming and your patience.
    Should anyone see something unusual, please create a support ticket for individual investigation.

  7. Not working on ubuntu 16.04

    After I upgraded to 16.04 LTS, I could not use my DisplayLinks graphics/ethernet adapter for graphics (ethernet works fine). I recently installed the newest driver (1.2.65) but I get this error:

    Warning: dlm.service changed on disk. Run 'systemctl daemon-reload' to reload units.
    Job for dlm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status dlm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

    I run journalctl as suggested by the error message and here is what I get:

    26 16:27:28 myhost systemd[1]: Starting DisplayLink Manager Service...
    -- Subject: Unit dlm.service has begun start-up

  8. Support for LUTs

    I have a laptop connected with an external monitor through a USB dock. It seems that DisplayLink does not support LUT as the ICC profile creation software (XRite i1Profiler) cannot complete the ICC profile creation for the secondary monitor connected through the USB Dock. The software works fine if I connect the monitor directly to the laptop HDMI port.

  9. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    Will you be supporting Ubuntu 16.04 LTS? Got an ETA?
    It would be great if you would add/post a deb or even better a ppa site.

    Thanks,
    Dennis

  10. Support f.lux and Night Light on Windows

    Flux will reduce the amount of blue light emitted by the screen which aids going to bed. As it stands, there is no support for color calibration to DisplayLink connected monitors. DCC/CI commands are supported, but there are issues that make it not a viable solution (http://superuser.com/questions/257606/is-there-a-work-around-to-configure-brightness-or-color-on-a-displaylink-monitor).

  11. Fix the problem where DisplayLinkUserAgent eats 38% of my CPU

    OS is windows 10, DLUA is 7.9.6.30.0. This often gets in a state where the user agent sets there using between 35 and 38% of CPU.

  12. Make DisplayLink drivers work with suspend on Ubuntu

    My DisplayLink-attached screen went awry after resuming from suspend, and I see that it's a known issue. Not being able to use suspend on a laptop is a major loss of functionality for me.

  13. Support linux on ALL your devices

    I just purchased a displaylink USB 3 based device; reading the forums I didn't pickup the difference between USB 2.0 being supported and USB 3.0 not being supported. This is nonsense. Content protection on the monitor, I don't care about being able to use protected content; I'd like to just be able to use the monitor I paid for. But no.

    I think you should support Linux with USB 3.0 devices to use non-DRM content.

    Ubuntu is now supported by DisplayLink and can be downloaded from here:

    http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu

    The Ubuntu driver is designed with open source components and packaging which enables it to be ported and distributed for other linux distros. DisplayLink does not intend to officially support more than Ubuntu. For more information, see our article here:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/679060

    If you have further suggestions about Linux support, please raise separate specific feature requests.

    If you have any problems or need support, please use the Linux forum here:
    http://www.displaylink.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29

    Please DO NOT use the comments thread to report problems. We have no way of following up on problem reports here. Use the forum instead.

  14. Better linux support

    Better linux support, updated drivers, Fedora support (that means distributing an RPM)

    Fix the issue where closing X for the first time means that the devices are no longer recognized by xrandr

    Fix the slowness disparity between running it in linux and running it in windows

    windows = no lag
    linux = lag

    Improve your linux drivers.

  16. add support for the VMWare SVGA Driver so that virtual machine guests can use display link

    When using virtual machines it would be really handy to have them display via usb adapters on spare monitors or PIP overlays in fancy monitors.

    Many virtualisation engineers would be buying your products, many times.

  17. Driver Signing

    Your DisplayLink driver is unsigned. It won't work with 64bit Windows OS. I suggest fixing that if you want people to buy your product.

  18. Repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting (STILL)

    I'm running an ASUS ROG G56jk-EB72 Gaming Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10 (As of 11/12/2015) 64-Bit. CPU: Intel (R) HD Graphics 4600 & GPU: Nvidea GeForce GTX 850M. Trying to project onto two additional Insignia displays using two Targus USB 3.0 to HDMI HDTV Video Adapter. So I spent about $300 for the displays and $160 on the video adapters and this doesn't even work. I am beyond frustrated. All of my drivers are up to date. I followed the steps as instructed by the troubleshooting page; "How to fix your DisplayLink product from repeatedly disconnecting and…

  19. Linux kernel version 4 unsupported.

    Just tried building the displaylink driver using the displaylink-installer.sh on my Fedora Rawhide machine and look at the results!

    ./displaylink-installer.sh -?
    DisplayLink Linux Software 1.0.68 install script called: -?
    Distribution discovered: "Fedora release 24 (Rawhide)"
    Unsatisfied dependencies. Missing component: Kernel version 4.2.0-0.rc5.git3.1.fc24.x86_64 is too old. At least 3.14 is required.
    This is a fatal error, cannot install DisplayLink Linux Software.

    Hmm, 4 is older than 3!?!? Who Knew?!?! Need to fix the script.

  20. Use GPU rendering to lower CPU usage

    Can we access the GPU to take advantage of OpenGL, etc, to avoid the heavy CPU (and laptop battery) usage?

    DisplayLink software already checks the CPU and GPU resources available on a platform and uses these to provide the best user experience possible.

    This is why some compatibility issues can be resolved by updating to the latest graphics drivers available for your primary graphics card,
