Question Fedora 25?

Hello all,

I have a Fedora 25 workstation install and an AOC e1649Fwu DisplayLink monitor. It looks like Fedora is recognizing it and it seems all is well (to the OS). You can see the screenshots here: http://imgur.com/a/3CK80

However, what I see is much different and unusable:

Does anyone have any experience getting this working on Fedora 25? This is the out of box experience (no drivers or working towards getting it to work yet)

Interesting... I've had a similar issue, except the other monitor stays black but I do see the mouse moving around.

I gave up trying and have just been manually plugging in the HDMI cable hoping I'll see some improvement in the next update (evdi seems to have been updated, so hopefully there'll be a driver update soon too).

Btw, i'm on a t460s and fedora 25 (with both GDM and the session running on X)
