I've unflagged the package as out of date since the version it downloads is the most recent one.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

If you ever feel like adopting this package, just contact me. I will gladly accept any help.

4.4.24-1 upgrade killed rotation for me, and introduced some nasty mouse pointer artifacts.

4.4.24-1 (Mon 19 Nov 2018 02:08:06 PM CET)

Failed to parse arguments: Unknown option -title (with set -euxo pipefail)

Eventually I installed 4.2.29-1 and it works.

Screens don't get acpi wake commands, meaning they sleep when getting back from hibernation or if power saving is set to sleep screens.

For those who don't want to keep xorg-server in holdpkg I've uploaded version 1.19 to AUR:

It's a bit newer then latest 1.19 from official extra.

displaylink.service has After=display-manager.service that makes display-manager not reorganize displaylink monitor (for first time), I wonder if it should be Before=display-manager.service ? I've changed it and now display-manager(lightdm) can reorganize my displaylink correctly .

I just tried the latest versions of displaylink (4.2.29-1) and evdi-pre-release (1.5.0-4) with kernel version 4.17.2-1 and am seeing success (I was needing to use LTS up till now). I have not tried with the latest versions of the xorg-server*, xf86-video-intel however. Will try later today.

@kaipee2 - Thanks for spelling that out for me.

I also had to downgrade from xf86-video-fbdev 0.4.4+13+g9af7f81-1 to xf86-video-fbdev-0.4.4+12+ge0bce0d-1 as the former conflicts with xorg-server<1.20.

Just a note that this is still broken with xorg-server 1.20. Downgrading all packages works:

pacman -U xorg-server-1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xf86-video-intel-1:2.99.917+823+gd9bf46e4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xorg-server-common-1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xorg-server-xwayland-1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xf86-video-vesa-2.4.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
