DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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,

  10. Allow to not display the Display link icon in the icon tray. This could be done with a simple check box

  11. Stop Recommending to disable Windows Update

    Do not recommend installing the msi version of DisplayLink Drivers and then disabling Windows Update. I don't think a vendor should be recommending to customers to turn off Windows Update. DisplayLink should work out a way of getting the 2 working together. Happy to discuss further.

  12. Issue Logging tool for Displaylink

    Considering that displaylink is growing in our company we are facing more complications with Displaylink not working on particular models very well like MS surface devices. But it is also now happening to our Dell estate. So maybe DisplayLink can come with a logging tool so that when it is used it creates a dump which we can pass on to help get an answer from you quicker.

  14. Have an exit button on the "displaylink manager software".

    No need to explain more, its a basic and simple requirement. I want to exit the application when i am not using it. "DisplayLink manager" application is now like some malware which does not allow you to close it.

    Windows graphics subsystem cannot just be shut down like that. That’s the reason why you often have to reboot to install some Windows Updates. This has been addressed in Windows 10 Anniversary Update onwards though, where you can just remove the utility from startup or simply not install it. Marking completed.

  15. Some applications detect DisplayLink as incompatible display driver. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik

    When using DisplayLink some applications show incompatible display driver error. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik on Windows 10 and I'think at last since version 8 of drivers. Solution is to open them on laptop screen and then switch to displays connected via DisplayLink (in my case i-tec USB 3.0 docking station). It would be nice if it could be solved.

  16. Monitors randomly blacking out - SOLVED

    If your monitors are blacking out using your DisplayLink D3100 check your chair.

    I was having issues with my dual monitors randomly blacking out. After updating s/w, drivers and replacing the D3100 nothing worked.

    As strange as it sounds, I was finally able to determine the cause was my chair. I have documented this in two videos.

    DisplayLink technology doesn’t have any restriction on layout or aspect ratio. I suggest you open a technical support case with your details with tecnhical_enquiries at displaylink,com to check that you don’t hit a hardware limitation from your adapter.

  20. Resolve the compatibility issue with Duet Display, Twomon, Spacedesk, etc.

    After I purchased a USB Type C dock driven by DisplayLink technology for my laptop, a big issue derived: every time I want to use Duet Display with my iPad Pro or Twomon USB with my Pixel C, I would have to uninstall the DisplayLink driver before I plug any of my tablets. When I get home and try to connect to my dock, I would have to go through the setup process again. This is just a big inconvenience for people like me.
