I have installed Xfce on my Debian and I am getting now extra message error when trying to enable extra screen. The message is:

Code:
The last active output must not be disabled, the system would be unusable.
Therefore, the question is what to do with that issue?

Reinstalled yesterday to Ubuntu 14.04.2 and it was working all fine. Reinstalled back to Debian 8.2 with LXDE and couldn't get it working.

My laptop is running with hybrid video cards which are: Intel HD Graphics 5500 and AMD Radeon R7 M270

Can there be an issue with video card drivers? Which one I should be using?

@marek, and everybody else interested.

I made a DisplayLink driver installer for Debian (Jessie/Stretch/Sid)

It works regardless of your kernel version.

displaylink-debian licence is GPLv3 and if you’d like to add any changes or to extend it to any other distribution then Debian, be my guest!

Hi thanks for sharing your driver. I have just bought the Asus MB168B+ screen and I see that there is no driver for debian 8. Unfortunately, i have not enough permission to download your driver.

Edit : I finally downloaded the driver from the google link.

About the driver :

Everytime I reboot, I have to repeat these two commands to see my screen as detected :

Code:
xrandr --listproviders 
xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0
Doesn't work

- brightness +/- button
- screen rotation with autorotate
- screen rotation using "rotate" option in Display configuration
- resolution cannot go over 1366 x 768, my display is 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)

Bug

Using multiple display can be tricky, sometimes the screen turns on, sometimes it doesn't.
You have to play with xrandr a bit

Usage

The screen can be positioned on the right of your screen only because of the short cable and the missing rotate feature.
Because of the shit resolution, coding with this resolution isn't a pleasure.

The Asus MB168B+ doesn't worth 250€.

Also, it is not easy to get 3 screens working you have to use a little of patience.


Thanks anyway and I hope to see more features in the futur !

Question Kernel problem Ubuntu with kernel 4.4 (not using this installer yet)

Might this installer (which"works regardless of your kernel version") work on Ubuntu (for DOCK110REU)?

The DL installer incorrectly concludes my kernel is too old (4.4 > 3.14):

$ sudo ./displaylink-driver-1.0.68.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing DisplayLink Linux Driver 1.0.68 100%
DisplayLink Linux Software 1.0.68 install script called: install
Distribution discovered: Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa
Unsatisfied dependencies. Missing component: Kernel version 4.4.0-0-exton is too old. At least 3.14 is required.
This is a fatal error, cannot install DisplayLink Linux Software.

Please let me know the right place to ask this question if not here. Will be grateful for any pointers.

Thanks

Hi,

We cannot reproduce this - the monitor works in 1080p resolution in our test lab - when used in extended desktop mode of course
Note that ASUS released two models, one with "+" and the one without, they had different max resolution (the one without "+" was actually 1366x768 I think).

Could you attach logs files so we can look closer on this?

Thanks,
Michal

How do you attach log file ?

I have MB168B+ but dmesg show product MB168B :

[74859.654546] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=17e9, idProduct=ff03

I am using debian 8 with the following driver : https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian.git, this is the only driver that worked for me, and also the latest up to date.

If there is a way to add the custom resolution, please inform me so.

Code:
xrandr --listproviders 
Providers: number : 2
Provider 0: id: 0x73 cap: 0xb, Source Output, Sink Output, Sink Offload crtcs: 3 outputs: 4 associated providers: 1 name:Intel
Provider 1: id: 0x41 cap: 0x2, Sink Output crtcs: 1 outputs: 1 associated providers: 1 name:modesetting
