ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock on Debian Jessie
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

It looks like everything is in place to have the dock working on my Debian however, xrandr finds nothing and the encrypted logs in /var/log/displaylink are little use...

DisplayLinkManager is running, kernel mod is there and firmware is also there.

Anyone got the dock working with debian?

If you zip the files from /var/log/displaylink directory and attach here, we could see what can be wrong. Thanks.

Any chance to get some info from the logs?

There's nothing in the logs that would explain the situation I'm afraid. We may need more verbose logging from DisplayLink Manager - we are currently preparing a customer support tool which could be used for increasing the verbosity.

Meanwhile, can you try increasing the verbosity of evdi logs to maximum by running this as root:

echo 6 > /sys/devices/evdi/loglevel
Ideally, before plugging in a dock to USB.

You can also increase the log level of evdi permanently by creating a

file with the following in it:

options evdi initial_loglevel=6
Maybe this would shed some more light.

As I replaced the docking station all began to work beautifully.
