DisplayLink driver installer for Debian and Ubuntu based Linux distributions: Debian, Ubuntu, Elementary OS, Mint, Kali, Deepin and many more! Full list of all supported platforms
Why do I need displaylink-debian?
DisplayLink releases its drivers only for Ubuntu xx.04 LTS. Hence if you run any other Ubuntu version or any other Linux distribution DisplayLink will not work as expected.
displaylink-debian allows seamless installation of the official DisplayLink drivers tailored to work for most of the Debian based Linux distributions regardless of which Linux kernel version (>4.15) you're using.
How to run "displaylink-debian"
sudo apt-get install git
git clone https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian.git
cd displaylink-debian/ && sudo ./displaylink-debian.sh
After installation has been completed, make sure to consult Post Install Guide!
