Any help would be appreciated.
I ran into similar issue. The driver installation process was smooth (albeit, I used the displaylink-debian installation script instead), but displaylink couldn't detect the monitor.

I got around the problem by switch to wayland instead of X11. In fact, in many ways, wayland worked better than X11, as opengl application still uses my nvidia gpu (albeit, open-source nouveau driver)

May be you should give Wayland a try as well.
