Default Displaylink monitor works perfectly, except opening applications freezes computer

EDIT: Just read the page at https://support.displaylink.com/know...ticles/1181623 and realized that I'm being affected by that problem. I've tried both workarounds and neither were successful.

I recently ran a dist-upgrade and displaylink works, but whenever I try to open an application in gnome or in the unity launcher or anything, it will freeze my computer except for the cursor loading animation being glitched out.

I've attached the log file that was created while the monitor was plugged in and after the crash (after I held the power button down and restarted)

I also tried the steps provided by jabodk here: https://support.displaylink.com/foru...l-your-devices which didn't change anything except I think it may have made it take a little longer to freeze my computer.

Default

After a few hours of trying lots of different things, copy-pasting (and finding a random file on github) has won again.
First off, make sure that config files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ or in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ aren't the same thing. Right now I have all of my config files in the /usr/share but as long as you keep 20-intel.conf and 20-displaylink.conf in one place you should be good. (So don't have a /etc/.../20-displaylink.conf and a /usr/share/.../20-displaylink.conf)

My 20-displaylink.conf is just copy-pasted from: https://github.com/displaylink-rpm/d...splaylink.conf

And my 20-intel.conf:
Code:
Section "Device"
  Identifier "Intel Graphics"
  Driver "intel"
  Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
#  Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
#  Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
  Option "TearFree" "true"
  Option "TripleBuffer" "true"
  Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
  Option "Tiling" "true"
  Option "Pageflip" "true"
  Option "ExaNoComposite" "false"
  Option "Tiling" "true"
EndSection
