The screens attached to my docking station stopped working on Kernel 5.7.9

Uninstalling evdi and installing evdi-git as suggested by @homelessuser fixed the problem for me.

5.8 Kernel + evdi 1.8 + Displaylink didn't seem to work 5.8 Kernel + evdi-git 1.7 + Displaylink fixed it

sudo pacman -Rns evdi displaylink
yay evdi-git
yay displaylink
sudo modprobe udl

Anyone else having problems today?

DVI-I-2-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

DVI-I-1-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

5.8 kernel didn't break it but I think today's graphical updates did.

evdi 1.8.0-1

chamblard commented on 2020-07-27 18:06 I got the same issue with kernel 5.6, evdi 1.7.0, displaylink from AUR I did :

remove displaylink (from packagemanager manjaro)

remove evdi 1.7.0

create /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-evdidevice.conf with :

Section "OutputClass"
Identifier "DisplayLink"
MatchDriver "evdi"
Driver "modesetting"
Option "AccelMethod" "none"

reboot to kernel 5.4 from splash screen

install evdi-git 1.7.0 from package manager

mkdir ~/AUR; cd ~/AUR

git clone; cd displaylink

makepkg -fLsi

reboot with screen connected in USB

It is working for me now

If you get the permission denied on /root/.cache you are probably using pamac. Try yay or another method to install and it works fine.

@dirthsj Please provide more details how you "reverted the latest commit" to get around your error as I am getting the same error.

NM ... it was an issue on my side

darose commented on 2020-06-02 14:38

I noticed that with an older release of DL, my dock (a Dell D3100) would show up as an additional output device in PulseAudio and I could plug in to the headphone jack in the dock and get audio. That's not working in the latest version. Anyone know what might have changed?

Got this error installing If you install it from the add/remove software UI you might get this error. Just install the package manually. It worked for me.

Your xfce4-terminal / accessibility setup seems broken. Nothing to do with the package.
