I've unflagged the package as out of date since the version it downloads is the most recent one. I no longer have a system that uses displaylink, thank god, so I cannot assist in trying to debug errors. If anyone wants to take over the package, please contact me :)

xf86-video-intel (1:2.99.917+892+gc6cb1b19-1 destroyed my setup. My Displays connected via DisplayLink were apeared black, but the mouse could be used. A downgrade to Version xf86-video-intel (1:2.99.917+870+g6f4972d5-1) was sccessful.

I can confirm pogojotz's comment. Build process worked flawlessly and the available driver is the current one.

I believe the out-of-date flag is invalid, since this is exactly the version, that is offered on displaylinks website for the several Ubuntus. Seems like the flagger just had trouble building the package.

At those who also have trouble building the package, please report in what environment you are doing it (what shell, any AUR helper you might be using, etc), since the trouble seems to be with the included script in the original driver package.

My build process works by the way. Tried it in qterminal with blank makepkg and the AUR helper yay.

Extracting DisplayLink Driver Package /tmp/pamac-build/displaylink/PKGBUILD: line 48: cd: displaylink-5.2.14: No such file or directory Was solved by doing to upgrade from cli, eg. pamac build displaylink.

@JustDevZero I'm on 5.1.4-1 and I'm having no luck.

I keep getting this when I enable / try to start the service:

-- A start job for unit displaylink.service has begun execution.
-- The job identifier is 51317.
Jun 03 09:27:46 EB-Manjaro modprobe[29689]: modprobe: FATAL: Module evdi not found in directory /lib/modules/5.1.4>
Jun 03 09:27:46 EB-Manjaro systemd[1]: displaylink.service: Control process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
-- Subject: Unit process exited

I tried removing everything and using the evdi-pre-release too with no luck. I'm not really finding anything else out there in terms of how to get this thing working on my T480s so far. Dock's an overpriced USB hub at present.

Anyone knows how it works on kernel linux-5.1.6 with Intel card? I'm a bit stuck on 4.20.13-arch1-1-ARCH, I want to update but at this moment I don't have enough HDD to backup everything.

PS: I know, I must update more frequently to avoid the kernel jumping.

In my MANJARO when searching the terminal on the packages "*mesa" it returns me the following listing
