  • Single X server layouts with a normal monitor and a DL monitor are notably quite difficult to get working. Elaborate on this, provide external links to the related broken packages and what people are doing to fix this.
  • Write a section for multi-X server layouts and include ways to combine them. Even if we can't move windows between monitors, this is better than nothing.


fb_defio=1 module option was removed from this page, since commit 9f811b72c669e29f8c01e258d912254065e58f11 to linux-stable has added it by default.

If this breaks anything, please go ahead and re-add it, but let me know because I'm pretty convinced it's not required.

DELL displayLink model DA100 now working...

With kernel 4.1 or higher , and after installing the USB drivers of the wiki. Start the service ( sytemctl start displaylink.service ) that with the DA100 adapter ( 4 in 1 - VGA ,HDMI,Ethernet and USB 2.0 ) works.

DisplayLink USB 3.0 w/DL-3x00 Suspend/Resume Issues

Just to note there are some resume issues when a system goes into suspend (in my case, Lenovo Thinkpad USB 3.0 Dock w/2 DVI monitors). On resume, xrandr --listproviders shows the providers, and enabling them doesn't seem to do anything: Gnome doesn't see the monitors. Also, the NIC and Audio devices are not found. Unplugging/replugging the USB doesn't change either. I have to Power Off the USB 3.0 Dock and power it back on. Haven't had that issue under Windows across multiple notebooks before.

Not showing in --listproviders until a screen is plugged in

Maybe there should be a note about this? I thought it would show up as a provider even if nothing was plugged in.
