DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. Charging

    at least charging the laptop from the dock. If I need to use additional port then it defeats the purpose of dock, I can use usb's on monitor and hdmi extender slots.

  2. Start supporting Linux on Lenovo's Thinkpad hardware!

    Lenovo is selling docking solutions for their Thinkpad laptos. These docks have DisplayLink stickers at the button but none of them is working properly with Linux! Deepin Linux (based on Debian) is massively used in China by IT professionals working with Lenovo's Thinkpad hardware. We want at least dual monitor support working with this hardware. At the moment getting this to work is just a big pain in the a**. :-(((((((((((((

  3. Add Debian support in general. As most Linux distros are based on Debian that would make your tech work on most Linux distros.

    You don't have to reinvent the wheel: https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian

    That also would make it easy for Deepin Linux to adapt the drivers. Deepin is Linux distro #1 in China! Just think: Deepin + Lenovo (Thinkpad)

  4. Please make a disclaimer for Video Editors. Thanks!!

    usb 3.0 to hdmi on Mac OS 10.14 makes the external monitor image considerably darker. It is unusable for editing as the image is drastically compromised and does not represent the true output.

  5. overcome issue with starting 4K plug and play unit with Windows 10

    I note others have issues with the software update for your DisplayLink device as I do but, annoying as it is, there is a workaround that I have to use.
    Start your computer, (Mines a Dell Lattitude 3440), and add password to the Windows 10 start screen that appears on the laptop.
    The mouse and keyboard connected to the DisplayLink work so you can use them to go to "Restart" and restart your computer.
    Most times it will then migrate the screen image to my IPS LED screen.
    (The Windows 10 function key system to change monitors does not do…

  7. Is there such a drive board design that can drive two 4K panels, and is it directly driven by type-C?

    Is there such a drive board design that can drive two 4K panels, and is it directly driven by type-C?
    In this way, DIYer can design its own portable display, which is double screen.
    I suggest we design such a driver board to realize the portable display that slidenjoy designed in 2015.
    That design hasn't come true. I've been waiting for so many years.

    DisplayLink can already support mulitple USB displays connected on Android with the DisplayLink desktop app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.displaylink.desktop.demo&hl=en_GB

    However Android does not have a concept of multiple displays like other OSes. As of Android Pie, a single app can use more than one screen, eg powerpoint uses the phone screen to show presenter notes, and the extended screen shows the presentation.

    For DisplayLink to properly support dual displays on Android, like other OSes, changes would be needed to Android to support multiple displays.

  12. Fix DisplayLinkManager and driver before it damages my MacBook

    Mojave 10.14.6 with latest DisplayLink driver 5.2 on 2014 MacBook Air. Display is displaying correctly on Dell U2412M 1920x1200 display.

    BUT ...

    DisplayLinkManager is hogging between 70% and 150% of CPU. Macbook fan is going crazy. Just a couple of static web pages on screen, no background tasks. Restarting MacBook sometimes fixes the issue, sometimes not.

    This is not functional software, severely degrades MacBook performance, and can even DAMAGE the MacBook.

  14. Fix screen zoom on MacOS

    With 5.1.1 on MacOS 10.14.5, screen zoom/pan (Ctrl-Scroll Up) does not work properly on the DisplayLink screen... it tears and only zooms part of the screen.

  15. Samsung Dex compatability

    Any chance that Displaylink could extend the Samsung Dex display?

    It would be perfect, if that would work!

  16. Engage the Linux Foundation to develop your drivers.

    The Linux Foundation is the place to get things into the kernel. They will help you integrate your hardware into the mainline kernel without compromising any internal IP you may be worried about. Its really the only way to get a driver working for any OS. Work with upstream not against it.

    This translates to Windows and OS X as well. I was frustrated getting my device working with Windows. Complete pain and not plug and play by any means. OS X Mojave doesn't work at all and Linux shows the same behaviour. Flickering on and off rapidly an when…

  18. add support for Ubuntu Touch

    Ubuntu Touch originally developed by canonical is still being developed by ubports.
    I believe it could benefit from display link technology for external display support
    it is currently based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and is pretty well supported
    it also uses an android container to interface with userspace drivers

  19. Conflicts using Nvidia Prime, Displaylink and Ubuntu

    I would like to describe conflicts using Nvidia Prime, Displaylink and Ubuntu in my experience.

    My environment: Ubuntu 18.10, Nvidia GTX 1070 (nvidia-driver-415), Displaylink 5.1, Asus MB168B+ (USB monitor), laptop Gigabyte Aero15x.

    If I try to login with nvidia profile activated and anything connected in USB ports (even only a mouse), I will face a login loop. It only will stop after disconnecting all USB devices, restarting the system and then I'll be able to login into my Ubuntu. Once logged in, I can connect my USB devices and use everything included my second monitor.

    If I try to login…

  20. Enable HDCP protected content playback on macOS (iTunes)

    Hi,

    I had to downgrade to Sierra 10.12.6 because of the multi-monitor incompatibility of Displaylink 10.13.4. I need my multi monitor setup. But the truth is that Displaylink 4.1, which is compatible with Sierra 10.12.6, deactivate iTunes movies. Here is the message:

    The selected display won't play on one of your connected displays

    This movie can be played only on displays that support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). Try moving the iTunes window to a different display. Make sure the entire window is on the supported display.

    When I remove Displaylink from OSX 10.1206, iTunes movie start to plays back.…
