For Kernel 5.13.1-3 (Manjaro) it works for me - only with: 1.) deinstall displaylink 2.) pre-installing evdi-git 1.9.1.r4.gb0b3d13-1 (not evdi 1.9.1-1 wich works for me at earlier Kernels fine!) 3.) install displaylink again

@again: I'm not shure, what you mean... AMD RENOIR (DRM 3.41.0, 5.13.1-3-MANJARO, LLVM 12.0.0) 4.6 (Compatibility Profile) Mesa 21.1.4 Performance with displaylink is fine for me (no more waiting for mouse-click-reaction on screen ;-) like before)

Thanks! Seem to work fine on linux-zen:

@LinaM what amdgpu are you using? And are you satisfied with the performance? Is it worth to give it another try?

I tried to install on 5.10.42-1-MANJARO and it failed. I installed the evdi-git and it didn't work either. Also, my wifi was not working anymore, even after rebooting and uninstalling everything. In case anyone else has the same issue: I solved it rebooting on a USB live image

Installation on Manjaro (Kernel 5.12) - with 1.9.1-1 (not evdi-git!) - without any problems. Thx für the good job :-)

But since the last Manjaro updates my system was slow...

After I installed Tuxedo Control Center, everything - despite amdgpu - runs smoothly, fast and fluid (2 external monitors, lid closed, dark but not off! Use of force-modesetting and bash-Script at start) Maybe it helps someone with a similar constellation...

Hello, since the last displaylink driver update my ASUS monitor on manjaro linux has been very laggy and is very hard to use. I am wondering if there is a way to downgrade the displaylink package to an older version (I did not install it with pacman so I can't downgrade it with that) or this can be just an FYI that the driver is not working right.

FYI, I updated evdi to the 1.9.1 release in case you want to re-add as a possible dep.

Was having a lot of issues with multiple monitor setup and i3 on previous version with standard evdi.

This version along with evdi-git (1.9.1.r4) are working flawlessly with 5.11.13.

You can try to open a new issue at (Please don't post off-topic information on existing issues) or make a post in

There is already a post on AMD performance:

I recommend to not put your hopes too high. DisplayLink performance on Linux has always been very problematic. I doubt that Synaptics now owning DisplayLink has increased priorities on Linux.
