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?
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.
