The currently available release does not support 4.13 kernel. Please wait for a new version of the driver, which is already in the works.

Thanks,
Michal

Thanks Michael. I've installed the new driver, but am still having problems with it. I receive this error when trying to open DisplayProperties, in Ubuntu 17.10 -

/opt/displaylink$ [libevdi] ioctl: drop_master error=-1
[libevdi] ioctl: drop_master error=-1
[libevdi] ioctl: drop_master error=-1
[libevdi] ioctl: drop_master error=-1

Can you please advise?

Default Ubuntu 17.10: driver 1.4.210 kernel 4.13.0-16.generic

Should they work together?

I am using a D1000 docking station attached to a Dell XPS-13-9350.

lsusb -d 17e9:

produces

Bus 002 Device 006: ID 17e9:436c Displaylink

This setup worked with the previous driver and 17.04.

If I disconnect and reconnect the USB3 cable to the docking station, my display flashes as if there is an attempt to detect displays (both the builtin display and the Hanstar display attached to the docking station), but in displays configuration, the attached Hanstar display does not appear.

Maybe I should have stuck with the previous setup, but the audio subsystem was terribly broken, and I needed it for some development work.

Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

The Ubuntu troubleshooting webpage below seems out of date.

Do you see the external monitor(s) appear in xrandr output? If yes, try to bring it back to life:
Code:
xrandr --output DVI-I-1-1 --auto
(replacing DVI-I-1-1 with whatever ID you have, it usually starts with DVI-I)

According to xrandr only the builtin display is detected.
