DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. 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

  2. Implement IOMMU support

    Implement IOMMU Support
    IOMMU is necessary on many libvirt based linux virtual hosts in order to allow guest machines to make use of the host's hardware, such as graphics cards and network cards. In its current state, turning on IOMMU results in Displaylink being unable to communicate with secondary displays, completely negating any benefit from having a displaylink dock.

  5. Add firmware / version information to the Dock Management Tool

    While the firmware update is Silent, in large scale deployments it would be useful to know / be able to report on the Firmware version.
    This would enable admins to rule-out old firmware as the cause of faults and detect where an older client is still in use.

    If this information is readily available it could be added as another command in the Dock Management Tool, or in the Support Info Tool

  7. Provide an App or Instructions for manually starting or restarting displaylink (Mac)

    The DisplayLink option in the top bar of my Mac sometimes just doesn't show up. The only known option seems to be restarting but this doesn't work most of the time. It would be enormously helpful to know how to directly troubleshoot this service at a technical level or to simply have an 'App' that I could search for and restart.

  10. Support Ubuntu 18.10

    I am currently installing the display link driver for Ubuntu 18.10, following https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian. I did not try the 4.4.24 install script for 18.04 with 18.10, assuming that it might fail for 18.10, and seeing success reports in https://support.displaylink.com/forums/287786-displaylink-feature-suggestions/suggestions/35648710-support-ubuntu-18-04, although some people see screen outages.
    An officially supported 18.10 driver would be great.

  12. Mojave 10.4.4 + Drivers 5.1.1 can't drive 2nd display

    After updating to the latest 5.1.1 drivers, my 2nd monitor works properly to start. After rI disconnect, allow my laptop to go to sleep and then return, the 2nd monitor no longer functions :(

    The only work around at this time is to reboot which will allow me to use the 2nd display

  15. Hotkeys for screen rotation and other display functions

    Enable hotkeys for screen rotation (and other display functions). Other drivers use ctrl-alt-left and ctrl-alt-up (etc) to rotate the current screen, this should be available for DisplayLink as well. Phones and tablets have set the bar with seamless screen rotation, DisplayLink should support as near to this experience as possible.

  17. Please give users compatibility feedback on specific MacOS versions, e.g. 10.14.1. only

    Rather rather mixing up posts with various OS and driver versions please give users compatibility feedback on specific MacOS versions, e.g. 10.14.1.

    Currently, you make a difficult situation much harder

  18. 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

  19. Post issues about Driver 5.1 for Apple OS Mojave

    My third monitor uses a USB 3.0 graphics adapter powered by DisplayLink. After downloading version 5.1 update, I no longer can enable Airplay feature and my third monitor requires unplugging (after awakening from sleep mode) and replugging into my Mac Mini to get a signal to the monitor. Suggestions??
