displaylink-debian

DisplayLink driver installer for Debian GNU/Linux and Ubuntu.

Problem

DisplayLink releases its drivers only for Ubuntu 14.04, and latest kernel version they support is 3.19.

displaylink-debian

  • Allows you to seamlessly install and uninstall DisplayLink drivers on Debian GNU/Linux and Ubuntu.

How? Just run the script! (as regular user)

./displaylink-debian.sh

Technical

displaylink-debian.sh
  • Downloads and extracts contents of original [DisplayLink Ubuntu driver] (http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu.php>)

  • displaylink-debian.sh will modify contents of original displaylink-installer.sh and customize it for Debian. After which install/uninstall is performed.

  • Supported platforms are:

    • Debian: Jessie/Stretch/Sid (regardless of which kernel version you're using.)
    • Ubuntu >= 15.04 <= 16.04 (regardless of which kernel version you're using.)
    • Ubuntu >= 14.04 and Elementary OS (kernel >= 3.16 and Xorg >= 1.16.)
