I want to get this i-tec USB 3.0 Docking Station running with Ubuntu 18.04. I downloaded the drivers for Ubuntu from here, untipped the file and followed the install instructions in the
READ ME.pdf (with content similar to this one)
I got this output of the installation script:
Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04, 19.04 sudo ./displaylink-driver-5.2.14.run [sudo] password for florian: Verifying archive integrity... 100% All good. Uncompressing DisplayLink Linux Driver 5.2.14 100% DisplayLink Linux Software 5.2.14 install script called: install Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Installing Configuring EVDI DKMS module Registering EVDI kernel module with DKMS Building EVDI kernel module with DKMS Installing EVDI kernel module to kernel tree EVDI kernel module built successfully Installing x64-ubuntu-1604/DisplayLinkManager Installing libraries Installing firmware packages Installing licence file Adding udev rule for DisplayLink DL-3xxx/4xxx/5xxx/6xxx devices Please read the FAQ http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/topics/103927-troubleshooting-ubuntu Installation complete!
The device is connected via USB:
$ lsusb | grep DisplayLink Bus 002 Device 005: ID 17e9:4307 DisplayLink
However seems like it should contain something like this which is missing in my output:
Starting DLM upstart job displaylink start/running, process XXXX
What's going wrong here?
