    I found that with this beta version of the driver, I could no longer mount my USB external drive (wd passport) the script to unlock it would never work with this version of the displaylink driver installed. I had to go back to the last stable version of the displaylink driver V5.4. Otherwise though it works with kernel 5.15 fine,just not my USB drive, which I need to mount to use.

    This is the script I found no longer works when this driver is present
    ./wdpassport-utils.py -u -d /dev/sdc #or example

    It says multiple devices for some reason yet there are not, and i'm even specifying which device to unlock which never fails with earlier versions of the driver..
    It is available from https://github.com/0-duke/wdpassport-utils for anyone else that wants to try and reproduce the issue I have had, who also has a wd-passport external drive to unlock.

    This was on Kubuntu 21.10.

    I support this suggestion as a display-link driver dependent, and preferring the non LTS version's of Kubuntu. I like others, prefer the more recent version of KDE, and not the older LTS Xubuntu base which comes with the likes of KDE Neon.

    Please make the official display-link driver compatible with 21.04.

    Many thanks to Jonathan Kamens for making it possible to use Displaylink 20.04 with 21.04 even if it means some sacrifices like lower Kernel version etc. Hence why we still need official compatibility with 21.04!
