  2. package ubuntu software properly

    Packaging of ubuntu drivers into a .zip file with a name containing lots of spaces, which unzips into the current folder instead of a subfolder, and then requires the manual execution of an installer script (which may as well be called setup.exe), makes ubuntu users feel like we are running Windows again, and reminds us why we hated it so much. Ubuntu offers a superior packaging format (the .deb package), and a repository model which offers streamlined installation, and automatic updates forever. Setting up a repository for your software and packaging it properly will take very little more effort than…

  4. Enable 4K HDR support to TV's for extended display use when viewing High End Photographs in Capture One or other Photo Edditing software

    A large number of Photographers are using high end Cameras capable of recording 16 bits per pixel HDR. There are also a large number of 4K HDR TV's being sold but they only display Jpeg format at 8 bits per pixel. It would be fantastic to have a device that would bring these technologies together so people could use their TV's to view and or edit their HDR photographs properly on a 4K HDR device.

  6. See all dockingstations of same type as same device

    Hi!

    We have installed a multitude of workstations with the same type of DisplayLink docking station. When moving from one station to another, the monitor settings are "forgotten" and the new Dell D6000 is seen as a completely new device, and new drivers and settings for monitors, network and usb are needed to be configured.

    Therefore I suggest making it possible to have the driver think that all docks of the same type is also the same device. This will make this problem go away.

    Thanks
    Patrik

  7. Linux: reach Windows feature parity (mirroring, scaling, and rotating)

    Currently unsupported / broken in DisplayLink on Linux:


    • Display mirroring

    • Display scaling

    • Display rotation

    This really limits what you can actually do with DisplayLink on Linux - i.e. you can only currently have an extended display activated with no scaling or rotation. You can't even use only the DisplayLink connected display on its own.

  8. Add upgrade logic to the Linux installation scripts

    I had version 1.1.62 of the Ubuntu driver installed. When I tried to install the new driver, I got errors saying the EVDI module was running and I needed to reboot to continue the installation. After reboot, I got the same error again.

    After looking into the running DisplayLinkManager process, I ended up dropping into /usr/lib/displaylink and running the install script there with the uninstall option:

    me@mine:/usr/lib/displaylink$ sudo ./displaylink-installer.sh uninstall
    DisplayLink Linux Software 1.1.62 install script called: uninstall
    Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
    Uninstalling
    Removing EVDI from kernel tree, DKMS, and removing sources.
    Stopping DLM systemd service
    Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/graphical.target.wants/displaylink.service. …

  10. Fix linux driver scaling

    Scaling doesn't work with the linux DisplayLink driver. This makes it impossible to use displays of different DPI together. By scaling I mean, for example:

    xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --auto --scale 2x2

  11. add brightness support to non-windows OSes

    It's stated in the documentation that color correction and brightness do not work. I'm mostly interested in controlling the birghtness - is display link working on these features for non-windows OSes?

  12. Android portrait

    Add screen rotation to Android client. I have a display link monitor than can be turned to portrait mode. But, by default, my device displays in a box unless I turn the device to landscape... It then fills the screen. I would ask that the app allow me to hold the phone in portrait and display to my portrait monitor full screen. It does display correctly for a short time before rotating fully.

  15. Add an option to make task icon invisible, when no device is connected

    With the recent drivers the behavior of the task icon changed. It is now always visible. It would be great to add an option so that the user could define the preferred behavior.

    EVDI is designed as an open source component to be adapted for different graphics architectures.

    It is possible to already use DisplayLink on some embedded ARM platforms, as complied binaries are available in our distribution. Articles on how to do this on Raspian and Ubuntu MATE are here:

    https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1883065-using-arm-binaries-on-raspbian-on-raspberry-pi
    https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1883068-using-arm-binaries-on-ubuntu-mate-on-raspberry-pi

    The logs from the DisplayLink binary component are encrypted to protect IP. This is the same on all OSes for DisplayLink binary components.

  18. better mac icc profiles for monitors

    hi!

    there seems to be a need for better icc color profiles for mac. i'm using asus mb169b+ portable monitor and the colors are not very good. there is a real problem with the subtile greys, they are not getting displayed.

    hopefully there will be something done about this.

    This is on the backlog of Linux work, but is possible to be addressed by the community.

    It is possible the issue could be fixed with changes to the EVDI driver, which is an open source component available on github here:
