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
Excellent. Glad to hear it.
Wayland support is in the works, as per:
Mir is dead and Ubuntu is moving to Gnome and Wayland. Wayland support will be necessary sooner rather than later.

I thought I would note that rotation *is* possible on some systems. I got it working on Arch/Gnome.
Google for the correct configurations.
I don't know when the Wayland driver will be available. Was told "it's a big job," or something to that effect. So it might still be some time before it's ready.
I suspect this will be supported in the Wayland driver -- which I've been told is in the works.
