It seems I am unable to edit my own posts. Here is the comman I used on ubuntu 15.10 to install the driver:
sudo /home/robert/Downloads/dl/displaylink-driver-1.0.335.run

I am running cinamin.


can you give me the correct command to completely remove that driver, and install yours within ubuntu? I hope your driver can fork with the propratary radeon/ati driver to allow betttewr hardware acceleration and less lag than the the opensource drivers. Thank you.

If you used "displaylink-debian" to install it and if the driver dir is still there, you can do this by just running the script and selecting "uninstall".

Otherwise, get the version of driver you installed, extract the source, i.e:

Code:
./displaylink-driver-1.0.138.run --keep --noexec
cd displaylink-driver-1.0.138/
sudo ./displaylink-installer.sh uninstall

Hello there fooctrl I tried your script but it didn't seem to work with Ubuntu 15.10

I believe that the driver recently changed and does no longer contain the function you're attempting to change in your script

would you be so kind to provide an older version of the patched driver? I might give it a try -- thanks!

never mind, thanks, figured out that installation wasn't the issue

looks like I might have that intel libdrm conflict... but unable to solve it
