Please add which version of Mint you're using and I'll extend the support for Mint as well (https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displ...ebian/issues/4)

@gudbes, it seems like something went wrong with your install. Could you please "git pull" to update to latest version.

Then run "displaylink-debian" select "uninstall" and after it's done please reboot. After that run the tool again and select "install" and reboot after it's installed.

After successful install systemd should start displaylink.service automatically.

If you still have problems after that please submit an issue on: https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displ...debian/issues:

Default frozen secondary display

Hi,
The installation of the latest patch went without any problem.
Yet, after installation and post-install procedures, my second screen is recognized and i can set it up with xrandr/arandr etc.

The problem is that the screen is frozen, it displays either a black screen or a fixed image of what my main display was displaying at the time of the set up.

Has anyone encountered such a problem?

Regards,
Yoann

I'm on a DELL XPS 13" (9350), running Debian stretch (9.0) on a 4.9.0-3-amd64 linux kernel.

EDIT: didn't see the related issue on github, where it seems to be related to intel graphic cards: issue#68
I am testing, will update the post if it works for me.

Hello,

Sorry but i never had this problem.

After used this command : ./displaylink-debian.sh for the installation, i use this 2 commands only :

# xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0
# gnome-control-center display

I hope that help you.

Good luck

Indeed, that was linked to the Intel graphic card.
The solution to the 'black screen issue' can be found here: adangel's comment

After rebooting, deplug replug the DL dock and follow the post-install instructions as usual!

Thanks
