#StackBounty: #drivers #usb #multiple-monitors #displaylink How to use displaylink adapter with ubuntu 18.4.4

Bounty: 100

I have installed the ubuntu driver software for display link adapter and followed the instructions at:

https://support.displaylink.com/know…on-legacy-ubun

However, Whenever I connect my usb 3.0 to dvi/vga adapter – ubuntu does not recognise a screen is attached.

I am using the following adapter:

https://www.kensington.com/p/product…splay-adapter/

The adapter does appear when using the
Code:

lsusb
yields the result:
Code:
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 17e9:430f DisplayLink

So I know that it has recognised the displaylink on the USB bus.

I have also run the DL support Tool found at:

https://support.displaylink.com/know…to-displaylink

I have been trying for weeks to get this working and it’s really frustrating – hopefully someone can help me out here, I just want to be able to use another monitor via my usb3.0 port and purchased this Kensington adapter to do so – but alas it’s not working.

If anyone can give me some advice or help I would be grateful!

I am using ubuntu 18.4.4 for reference.

I did cross post this on the actual displaylink forum but stuck for help at the moment!
