Unhappy Cinnamon 18.3, mouse trails, high CPU Usage..

Hello, I've recently just tried DisplayLink with a Dell Latitude 7480, a Dell D6000 docking station, three Dell Monitors and Cinnamon 18.3

I'm able to get all the screens to work however performance seems to be an issue. I can see mouse trails when I move the mouse and sometimes the DisplayLinkMana process starts to consume excessive CPU resources. On ocaision something crashes and leaves me with just the laptop screen and one of my external monitors.

I've tried downgrading (to several versions) but no avail. I've tried this: "echo 1 > /sys/devices/evdi/add" (from another post), but no avail.

These problems seem to be consistent through out the products history. Does anyone know if there are any fixes or alternatives?

Thanks,

Gunther

Not sure if you're asking or telling me if someone has solved this issue?

Anybody at all have any suggestions? I've tried multiple versions (in fact I think I've tried all that will run on my OS), The applications crashes consistently, screens go blank, mouse trails all over the place - I can't be the only one experiencing this??

Default Do Not use this software on a Linux Platform

Unfortunately after trying desperately to get this software to work with a Dell 6000 DisplayLink dock, I am not able to. I have tried all the versions that work with Cinnamon 18.3 and none of them provide the intended results.
  1. The graphics performance is slow and chunky
  2. Mouse trails appear on the attached screens
  3. The software continually crashes (which also tosses your network connection)

My advice would be to stay away from this (on a linux platform).
