The development in GNOME compositor, mutter, has now reached a milestone that allows people use DisplayLink driver with Wayland if they have GNOME 3.32.1 installed. The packages for Ubuntu 19.04 are currently waiting in “disco-proposed” repository and they should be included in normal updates soon. Interested users are welcome to enable Proposed (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed) and upgrade libmutter and gir1.2-mutter packages. For more information about the final fix, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mutter/+bug/1826182
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:
The logs from the DisplayLink binary component are encrypted to protect IP. This is the same on all OSes for DisplayLink binary components.
