I am wondering if someone has instructions for completely removing the official DisplayLink driver before trying displaylink-debian
I have a Thinkpad with Intel Graphics
I have the same issue, Intel Thinkpad, worked under Eaon, did a fresh install of Focal, managed to get video working with help from here. Then Focal got an update yesterday (pretty sure I saw EVDI name in packages being updated) and now no video. Previous fixes not working
You could try a fresh Linux install, but as soon as it tries to update I suspect you'll hit the same issue.

It worked right up until Ubuntu downloaded some updates yesterday. Then nada.

I really wanted to try scaling too - why no word when new official drivers will be released? We shouldnt really need to compile them ourselves either.

Default 20.04 choppy graphics and sound

Got the displaylink working on 20.04 @ amd and vega graphics and wayland. I had to install libdrm-dev to avoid the drm.h error while running install from the git clone. Now everythings fine other than the graphics and sound seem to be slightly cutting off and choppy. Anyways 100% better than without it.

Its about time! Saw it too and if already published, the driver should be available for download asap...

Have 2 of the docks and would be very disappointed if it would not be supported anymore..

With the official drivers, even after installing flex and bison, it will not work because the makefile cannot find Build.include in the kernel headers.

After running:
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian.git
cd displaylink-debian/ && sudo ./displaylink-debian.sh

Then, reboot, and "delete all secure boot variables" in bios or otherwise remove secureboot.
I followed the procedure and It worked well. the only problem I have with my ThinkPad Hybrid USB-C with USB-A is that I have a pageflip issue as described :
https://support.displaylink.com/know...ent-x-upgrades
But the troubleshooting is already installed but doesn't work

Do you guys having the same problem ?

Worked for me with the 20-displaylink.conf as described in your link. However Wayland produces significant tearing, fine with X11 though...
