After latest Ubuntu updates it seems the problem is back, lagging when laptop lid closed.

If you are still having problems with Focal Fossa, try this.
Most compatibility issues between displaylink, evdi and kernel vers. > 5.8 have been solved by the evdi branch 1.7.x
Instructions for its installation are reported here:


Perhaps this might work for you as well.
If not, feel free to report back.

stopped working in Mint 20(.1)
Problem described here (for those who might come to this thread due to same issue):


Tried the fix explained here: https://displaylink.org/forum/showpo...9&postcount=19

Tried the fix with both 5.4 kernel (default in Mint 20.1) and a 5.8.x kernel (via Update Manager). Neither made a difference. Still just blurry lines in correct resolution.

Today I tried to close my laptop lid. Guess what, no lag today. Wonder how long that will hold!

Totally broken on a System76 GalagoPro with Kernel 5.11.x and DisplayLink 5.4.

Worked without issues on Kernel 5.3 and DisplayLink 5.3, so there must be an incorrect parameter.
