I've unflagged the package as out of date since the version it downloads is the most recent one.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 :)

No that's not it.
xrandr --listproviders does actually show 2 extra providers, however
xrandr --listproviders --verbose does not show the DVI ports they should provide.
starting/restarting the systemd module does not help.

log files for both my monitors are created under /var/log/displaylink/, though the content are not human readable.

I see the udev file makes mention of the plugdev group that does not exist on my machine though...

Oh yeah, you also have to enable the systemd service.
sudo systemctl start displaylink
I'm updating the DisplayLink wiki page to make mention of how to use the new driver.

unfortunately xrandr didn't do anything for me.
xrandr --listproviders does not even list the displaylink device.

Ubuntu does some magic to prevent you from needing to manually tell xrandr to link your main gpu to your displaylink device. xrandr --listproviders should show the displaylink device as modesetting, xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0 should get your up and running.

Awesome work!
unfortunately, the driver isn't working for me in Arch. I have tested it with Ubuntu, so I know it can work.
journalctl is showing me the info for my external monitors on connection of the docking, but they never show up in gnome's display configuration...

This is an initial release of the new driver that DisplayLink has released for their USB 3.0 devices. The PKGBUILD is based on their official installer with a ton of crud removed. I've added an Install section to the systemd service that was missing from their installer, so you can set the service to load on boot. Look at the Upstream URL for all the limitations of the current version.
