    Dear DisplayLink macOS users,

    We are pleased DisplayLink 5.0.1 driver for macOS enables multiple extended display support on the latest Apple macOS 10.14.2 with additional features (clamshell and clone). We continue our strong support for the Mac platform and are working on delivering future updates with further performance improvements.
    Driver 5.0.1: https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1257

    If your DisplayLink enabled device does not seem to work on 10.14, this is most likely due to the OS blocking our kernel extension. Please ensure our kernel extension is enabled by the OS as described in our FAQ: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1188004

    Should you still miss extended displays on latest macOS with latest DisplayLink driver, please create a support ticket so your particular case can be investigated. Here is how: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/755301

    Due to changes in 10.13.4-10.13.6, it is not possible to enable DisplayLink extended displays, except one using Apple AirPlay. If your Mac is from 2011 running 10.13.4-10.13.6 and…

  2. Support Ubuntu 18.04

    Hi I'm inquiring about when support for Ubuntu 18.04 and the Linux 4.15 kernel. I sent a paper letter to the Palo Alto office, but have not received a response.

  5. DL main display for Raspbian

    Add drivers for ARM, and specifically for Raspbian. Make the drivers work over HDMI instead of (or in addition to) working over USB.

  7. Provide Mac kext information for enterprise deployment.

    Useful if you published the TEAM ID and KERNEL EXTENSION BUNDLE ID for enterprise deployment. We can track it down but it would be nice to have that information included and easily visible. Thanks.

  8. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    Will you be supporting Ubuntu 16.04 LTS? Got an ETA?
    It would be great if you would add/post a deb or even better a ppa site.

    Thanks,
    Dennis

  9. Fix the problem where DisplayLinkUserAgent eats 38% of my CPU

    OS is windows 10, DLUA is 7.9.6.30.0. This often gets in a state where the user agent sets there using between 35 and 38% of CPU.

  10. Support linux on ALL your devices

    I just purchased a displaylink USB 3 based device; reading the forums I didn't pickup the difference between USB 2.0 being supported and USB 3.0 not being supported. This is nonsense. Content protection on the monitor, I don't care about being able to use protected content; I'd like to just be able to use the monitor I paid for. But no.

    I think you should support Linux with USB 3.0 devices to use non-DRM content.

    Ubuntu is now supported by DisplayLink and can be downloaded from here:

    http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu

    The Ubuntu driver is designed with open source components and packaging which enables it to be ported and distributed for other linux distros. DisplayLink does not intend to officially support more than Ubuntu. For more information, see our article here:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/679060

    If you have further suggestions about Linux support, please raise separate specific feature requests.

    If you have any problems or need support, please use the Linux forum here:
    http://www.displaylink.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29

    Please DO NOT use the comments thread to report problems. We have no way of following up on problem reports here. Use the forum instead.

  12. add support for the VMWare SVGA Driver so that virtual machine guests can use display link

    When using virtual machines it would be really handy to have them display via usb adapters on spare monitors or PIP overlays in fancy monitors.

    Many virtualisation engineers would be buying your products, many times.

  13. Repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting (STILL)

    I'm running an ASUS ROG G56jk-EB72 Gaming Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10 (As of 11/12/2015) 64-Bit. CPU: Intel (R) HD Graphics 4600 & GPU: Nvidea GeForce GTX 850M. Trying to project onto two additional Insignia displays using two Targus USB 3.0 to HDMI HDTV Video Adapter. So I spent about $300 for the displays and $160 on the video adapters and this doesn't even work. I am beyond frustrated. All of my drivers are up to date. I followed the steps as instructed by the troubleshooting page; "How to fix your DisplayLink product from repeatedly disconnecting and…

  14. Use GPU rendering to lower CPU usage

    Can we access the GPU to take advantage of OpenGL, etc, to avoid the heavy CPU (and laptop battery) usage?

    DisplayLink software already checks the CPU and GPU resources available on a platform and uses these to provide the best user experience possible.

    This is why some compatibility issues can be resolved by updating to the latest graphics drivers available for your primary graphics card,

  15. Allow to not display the Display link icon in the icon tray. This could be done with a simple check box

  16. Stop Recommending to disable Windows Update

    Do not recommend installing the msi version of DisplayLink Drivers and then disabling Windows Update. I don't think a vendor should be recommending to customers to turn off Windows Update. DisplayLink should work out a way of getting the 2 working together. Happy to discuss further.

  17. Issue Logging tool for Displaylink

    Considering that displaylink is growing in our company we are facing more complications with Displaylink not working on particular models very well like MS surface devices. But it is also now happening to our Dell estate. So maybe DisplayLink can come with a logging tool so that when it is used it creates a dump which we can pass on to help get an answer from you quicker.

  19. Have an exit button on the "displaylink manager software".

    No need to explain more, its a basic and simple requirement. I want to exit the application when i am not using it. "DisplayLink manager" application is now like some malware which does not allow you to close it.

  20. Some applications detect DisplayLink as incompatible display driver. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik

    When using DisplayLink some applications show incompatible display driver error. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik on Windows 10 and I'think at last since version 8 of drivers. Solution is to open them on laptop screen and then switch to displays connected via DisplayLink (in my case i-tec USB 3.0 docking station). It would be nice if it could be solved.
