Hi,

Anyone out there using DisplayLink? - is it "tested" in Factory?

ie, perhaps

Thanks

It depends - there are two generations of the DisplayLink chipset, the old
USB2 chipset(s) [1] and the newer USB3 ones [2].

The DL-1x5 series works fine with the current kernel, out of the box. You must
add the new output manually (see "xrandr --help | grep provider"), but thats
it. (Tested on 12.3 with Kernel 3.11.x)

As far as I know, the DL-3000 series does *not* work.

The LT1421 seems to be using one of the old chipsets, so it *should* work.

Regards,

Stefan
