Default The Installation of DisplayLink causes the black screen on boot

I have a problems with installation of Display Link Driver. It causes the xorg to be crashed on the boot.

I am on fresh Ubuntu LTS 20.04.01.

What i have tried already:
- different driver versions (,
- different kernels (5.4.0-42, 5.6.19, 5.8.18)
- patched xserver from here https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?d=310
- "PageFlip" set to "false"

This is what listed in the xorg log:
[   180.666] (WW) xf86CloseConsole: KDSETMODE failed: Input/output error
[   180.666] (WW) xf86CloseConsole: VT_GETMODE failed: Input/output error
[   180.666] (WW) xf86CloseConsole: VT_ACTIVATE failed: Input/output error
[   180.680] (II) Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.
What can I try more? If you need any information, let me know. Complete log is attached.

Thanks in advance and best regards
