Default Debian (Jessie/Stretch/Sid) installer

For those of you 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!

Default Linux 4.2.0-19-generic black screen

Hello,

Thanks to tammbuhez for your tuto, and your driver for Debian. Unfortunately for me, I'm on Ubuntu Mate, and neither work.

My AOC E2251Fwu external screen is detected (even its resolution)... but it remains blank.

My system (kernel Linux 4.2.0-19-generic) even shows a 3rd screen: "FNM" in a black square (see screen print). What is that ?

Any suggestion welcome (I'm a Linux beginner).

Thx,

Etienne
(I submit here because I gather that 4.1 or 4.2 present similar issues with the original DL installer)

What is the provider called radeon?
Could you try with the displaylink only?

Radeon is the PC's graphics card apparently. How do I proceed to switch it off as you suggest ?
Thank you again for your help.

what is the output of lscpi?
I'd like to understand your computer's hardware configuration. It seems you also have an Intel video card. What is your main video card?

In the latest version of "displaylink-debian" I've also added support for Ubuntu >=15.04 to <=16.04

Please remove your current installation, reboot your system and then install it using displaylink-debian.

can you give me the best command to purge remove displaylink driver? I would like to reinstall trying your driver. I can only use the external monitors with the open source ati driver. With the proprietary drivers I cant use them.... only black screens
