    Agreed. If the compression technology is too proprietary to be released, then make 2 separate modules, one proprietary to load the compression algorithms, one open source so that kernel developers can easily port the module and update with each new kernel, while the compression algorithm remains closed source and proprietary. That way is best of both worlds.

    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

    Wayland is not just a thing now, it's pretty much the default path of the majority of distributions for all recent laptops.

    You should port DisplayLink to Wayland or this technology will become irrelevant.
