Do I have a chance to get the displayLink adapter (chipset 14.04) working under ubuntu 14.04?

I found only articles for ubuntu 13.04. Is it the same under 14.04?

  • plugable.com/2014/03/06/… this link is for 13.10 if it's of any help – mchid Jul 23 '14 at 8:08
  • the links for 13.04 all talk about using kernel 3.9 or greater so it does look like you have a chance. – mchid Jul 23 '14 at 8:12

While there is currently linux kernel support for the older Displaylink chipsets, Startech themselves claims there is currently none for the DL3X00 chipsets.

This is where they say that: http://www.displaylink.com/for-business/common_questions.php (search on the page for 'linux'.)



Since there is a link to download driver for ubuntu 14.04 I guess the answer is 'Yes' (source: http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu.php)


Although, their website does say that it is not supported. An employee recently replied to a question on their website saying that it is possible: http://support.plugable.com/plugable/topics/will-the-ud-3900-work-with-linux

The UD-3900 will probably work for Mint but we do not offer support for this operating system.

Please take a look at the following DisplayLink knowledge base articles:

I am working on this right now and will update you on the procedure I used.

EDIT: I also found another StackExchange answer for this.
