  1. Nvidia CUDA for DisplayLink docks

    CUDA® is a parallel computing platform and programming model developed by NVIDIA for general computing on graphical processing units (GPUs). With CUDA, developers are able to dramatically speed up computing applications by harnessing the power of GPUs

    DisplayLink can start using it to free up CPU for the other tasks?

  2. When will displaylink support AMD cpu/gpu in Linux

    Currently displaylink-based docking stations and amgpus are not usable on Linux. The screen refresh lagging is horrible.

    Can you provide a plan when this will be fixed or at least make a proper disclaimer that Linux is not supprted. so people can spend their money on working products.

    Thanks.

  4. Display "Flip"

    Ich benutze den dritten Zusatzmonitor für einen Teleprompter, damit ich meinen Teilnehmern direkt "in die Augen schauen kann". Dazu wird der Bildschirm auf einem halbdurchlässigen Spiegel, der vor der Kamera sitzt, gespiegelt.

    Problem: Der Bildschirminhalt ist dann gespiegelt. Die einstellbare Drehung um 90/180/270 nützt hier leider nichts.

    Man nennt dies wohl "Display Flip" - es gibt auch spezielle Grafikkarten die dies ermöglichen, aber für Mac habe ich bisher keine Lösung gefunden.

    Meine aktuelle Lösung sieht so aus, dass ich einen zusätzlichen "echten Spiegel" dazwischen habe, das Bild also zwei mal gespiegelt wird. Das ist aber sehr Platzraubend und nimmt dem…

  5. Add features to DisplayLink Manager (Mac OS; poss. others)

    Let's turn the screen real-estate from the DisplayLink Manager (DLM) into something more useful:
    1) Add display of DLM version number.
    2) Add access to DLM logs or trouble-shooting tools.
    3) Add unicorns and rainbows. (Catch-all for any content you'd like.)

  6. Add display calibration with the Apple color calibrator

    Right now, the only profile allowed for my external displayPort displays is sRGB, whereas I have my own calibrations which color correct my monitors.

    As it is now, I only calibrate the color profile of my laptop monitor and the HDMI-connected screen, neither of which utilize your driver..

  7. Work to provide RHEL/CentOS native compatibility

    Every employee in the modern corporate environment has a laptop.

    On each laptop are displaylink drivers to support the docks at workstations (for 2 to 6 monitors).

    All of those workstations run windows, but they don't have to - they could run RHEL or CentOS instead, if there was a displaylink driver available.

    Please work to create and support a displaylink driver for RHEL/CentOS. You would bring joy to many developers and engineers working from both home and office.

    As the displays are relevant for only the workstations, creating it only for the latest version and not back-porting (RHEL/CentOS 8)…

  8. MacOS Display Arrangement does not save.

  9. Fix the memory leak in driver 5.3.1 for Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS

    This DisplayLink driver will slowly and continuously cache RAM on the system. After about 12 hours, for me it'll consume nearly 8GB of RAM and force a restart. Rinse and repeat.

    Can confirm as no memory leak occurs when not using the dock.

  11. Bring proper performant support for Linux on AMD Ryzen

    Hey,

    you released the last Linux driver update in May 2020 now it is Feb 2021. I would like to see here some major improvements as the driver doesn't full fill any needs.

    Linux is already a good platform and will be even more important in future, so please support this community as well.

    Or if you don't like Linux as a platform, then move all your servers either to Windows or Mac systems as well... hahahha

    Bye the way i am running a AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U with Radeon Graphics with Linux. sounds like it's an issue with…

  13. Ubuntu driver 5.3.1 bug

    You should correct the Ubuntu driver to create the support frame buffer /dev/fb1
    In the last version 5.3.1 installed in Ubuntu 20.04 it's not created.
    Without the /dev/fb1 is not possible to set up a multihead system with loginctl.

  14. Ubuntu 20.04 on MacBook Pro

    I upgraded from 18.04 and I couldn't get DisplayLink to work for several hours. I the end it I found I had to power-cycle the dock, and now all is OK

    (Except: this crept in during a kernel update on the previous OS -- If I disable the laptop's display, everything becomes really sluggish, so I keep it on)

  17. DisplayLink Manager app auto-start on MacOS 10.15.7

    I have been trying to get the new 1.2 display link graphics driver to work with my MBP Catalina10.5.7 and my Asus MB168+ monitor. I stumbled over the fact that it doesn't seem to auto open the driver unless you manually open it in Applications. Might be worth looking at ?

  18. DisplayLinkManager.exe priority should start High, not Normal

    On my Windows 7 x64 computer, in times of heavy CPU usage, the mouse cursor becomes extremely choppy. This is because DisplayLinkManager's priority is the same as that of the process using all the CPU time.

    I have found that if I set DisplayLinkManager.exe to High priority, the mouse cursor remains mostly smooth. Please consider defaulting DisplayLinkManager.exe priority to High at startup. This is an easy change in code and would solve one big irritation with this product.

  19. Enable visual accessibility settings for partially sighted users

    Both Windows & macOS have tools for applying colour filters to a screen to enable partially sighted users better access to these devices.

    These settings are enforced on monitors directly connected to theses devices and were previously supported on prior versions of DisplayLink when using a Mac but are not working currently.

    Is there a plan to leverage the built-in OS tools to enable this in the future?
