Default DisplayLink Driver wont install on ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS

Hi everyone, Ive seen this is a pretty common issue but have not yet found the fix for my OS. I am just trying to install the driver for my dell d3100 docking station since my monitors will not work yet with it (im using a dell xps13 developer edition with ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS). I am attaching my log file generated from the support tool. Here is the output from the actual driver:
sudo ./displaylink-driver-1.1.62.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing DisplayLink Linux Driver 1.1.62 100%
DisplayLink Linux Software 1.1.62 install script called: install
Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS

Job for displaylink.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status displaylink.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.



Let me know if any of you can help with this issue as I would really like to use my monitors sometime soon! Thanks in advance!

Default Similar install but Lenovo platform

Everyone and Support too,

I too have the same problems as described previously. My detailed symptoms are listed in the two attached files. The err.log.zip file shows the stdout/stderr for the installation process. The MKJ-LINUX...zip file shows the DisplayLink output from their problem reporting method.

I am looking forward to a possible resolution of this problem since I bought this platform just for the display system.

Thank you.

Marcus

The kernel module is not signed, you'd have to sign it yourself or disable secure boot.

Cheers,
Michal

Thank you Michal!

Now starts the work of understanding the Secure Boot. If you have a simple cook book method of disabling the secure boot, that would help get my other monitors up. This is a private workstation and it just so happens I know the Administrator.

Again...Thanks

Marcus
