DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. 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.…

  3. 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?

  4. FreeBSD support

    I use SUNIX VGA2715 which shows it is DisplayLink adapter. It works fine on Mac but it dosn't work on FreeBSD even if I load dynamic kernel module "udl".

    I am not familiar with that ; if it requires additional driver, could DisplayLink provide or give me any possible to workaround ?

    Thanks,
    Apua

  5. 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

  6. 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.

    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.

  11. 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:

    https://github.com/DisplayLink/evdi

  14. More user friendly Windows UI

    General overhaul of DisplayLink UI and installation manual. If I were complete beginner, I probably would have no chance to get it running properly.

  15. Ultrawide resolutions on Android

    HI! I really love this app, truly works like a charm. I have a galaxy S8 and an ultrawide monitor. Unfortunately the app only transmints in 16:9 so there are black edges all around the image, even up and down. It would be really nice to fix it, but still, this is a great app. Hope it gets in soon. Good luck!

  16. Create the ability to defined "docked" vs "undocked" profiles for the USB docking station

    In older versions of Windows there use to be a capability to have different profiles for a "docked" PC and an "unlocked" PC. This would be a great capability for you to add into your product since it is now a corporate mandate.

    My main issue is that I set up my desktop the way I like it and then when I either connect the USB or disconnect the USB all my settings are lost and I can't find my desktop icons anymore. This is a negative impact on my productivity.

  17. Please use versioning format x.x.xx instead of x.x (xx)

    We are trying to automate software updates and track inventory of DisplayLink drivers in our macOS environment. Trying to parse versions when the value reports as 4.1 (11) or DisplayLink Driver 4.1.11 - Copyright 2003... makes it difficult.

    In the driver Info.plist file, please set the CFBundleShortVersionString key in the x.x.xx format. Even better, clean up the CFBundleGetInfoString

  18. to integrate a PAUSE function into your firmware, that freezes the displayed content anc can eb activated/de-activated by keyboard.

    Freeze functions on classical projectors were very popular, in particular for people facilitating workshops or holding seminars. With the introduction of LCD screens this feature disappeared. Display link could easily re-introduce this. Ideally, hitting a (user-definable) key combination would turn PAUSE on and off. In addition the status (frozen / unfrozen) should be displayed with the application icon.

    Please go ahead :-)
