  2. 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…

  3. 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.)

  4. 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)…

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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)

  11. 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.

  14. 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 ?

  15. Avoid boot time stall due to udev rules

    The script deployed by the displaylink installer at /opt/displaylink/udev.sh is triggered by udev rules and will run:

    systemctl start displaylink-driver

    Under certain conditions this will trigger "udevadm settle" to block forever as it leaved processes left and can't return.

    I found https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/51760/commits/c72bb28b9cb5138d39647f8fa12394443fea682d which fixes the issue for them.
    Applying the same to /opt/displaylink/udev.sh in Ubuntu 20.04 works just fine, the boot is fast again and functionality had no negative impact.

    So please could you change this line in your code to be like:
    systemctl start --no-block displaylink-driver

  16. 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?

  18. We need to be able to select the rendering GPU.

    I have 3 GPUs in my computer and the DisplayLink driver always defaults to GPU 0 in the system. I only want GPU 0 to drive a single monitor, and use my secondary GPUs for rendering non-intensive content, which is what I use the USB monitor for.

  19. Provide a direct download link for latest the (Mac) driver download

    This would allow Mac Admins to automate the process of downloading DisplayLink software whenever there is a new version using open-source projects such as autopkg. The implementation of a ToS page breaks our current functionality.

    Perhaps even make a specific URL for admins, that when used implies that we agree to the ToS.

    This would allow us to push DisplayLink updates to our users much faster.

  20. MacOS: Menu bar switch for activating / deactivating the driver

    There are several occasions when I have to quit the DisplayLink driver app e.g. when I want to watch copy protected video content. Under MacOS there is a DisplayLink Icon in the menu bar. In order to temporarily disable the DisplayLink driver I have to quit the app. After that I have to start the driver all over again. That's not handsome.

    Suggestion:

    • Simple possibility to activate and deactivate the driver via the DisplayLink menu icon: New entries "Suspend DisplayLink driver" or "Resume DisplayLink driver".

    • Possbility to manage a list of apps: As soon as one of those apps will…
