Default Displaylink installation error on Ubuntu 20.04

Hi,

I tried to install the latest displaylink version(displaylink-driver-5.4.0-55.153) but one error is popping up,
HTML Code:
ERROR (dkms apport): binary package for evdi: 1.9.1 not found
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.10.0-1034-oem (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.9.1/build/make.log for more information.
ERROR: Failed to install evdi to the kernel tree.
This is the full log,

Unhappy DisplayLink, evdi 1.10.1, kernel 5.13.0-41-generic problem

I have exactly the same problem.

DisplayLink driver: 5.5
kernel: 5.13.0-41-generic
evdi: 1.9.1 cannot be compiled with this kernel.
ubuntu: 20.04.4

I tried to install evdi driver 1.10.1 but it supports kernel 5.15 minimum

I installed installing kernel 5.15 on my ubuntu 20.4.4

I also tried older versions of DisplayLink driver that supported this kernel. EVDI driver cannot be compiled.

Any solution to this problem? It seems it has been already a long time since this problem exists.

Smile Solution found!!!!

Guys, I found a beautiful solution that worked very well for me

1. Download evdi-dkms from here
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/evdi
- I downloaded : evdi-dkms (1.9.0+dfsg-1)
2 Install it with Gdedi on your Ubuntu
3. Install the DisplayLink driver
- https://www.synaptics.com/products/d...wnloads/ubuntu
- I downloaded the next version:
DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Ubuntu Ubuntu 20.04
Release: 5.4.1 | Sep 6, 2021
4. Install it from the terminal as usual

Be happy !!!!
