I have installed the ubuntu driver software for display link adapter and followed the instructions at:


However, Whenever I connect my usb 3.0 to dvi/vga adapter - ubuntu does not recognise a screen is attached.

I am using the following adapter:


The adapter does appear when using the

yields the result:

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 17e9:430f DisplayLink
So I know that it has recognised the displaylink on the USB bus.

I have also run the DL support Tool found at:


And have attached all of the files (excluding the cpuinfo and meminfo files) for anyone that can help me.

I have been trying for weeks to get this working and it's really frustrating - hopefully someone can help me out here, I just want to be able to use another monitor via my usb3.0 port and purchased this Kensington adapter to do so - but alas it's not working.

If anyone can give me some advice or help I would be grateful!

I am using ubuntu 18.4.4 for reference.

I can provide more info if needed!
