Default Dell DA100 not working for Ubuntu 18.04

Unable to use DA100 on linux ubuntu 18.04, install the latest drivers but still nothing, I can see on the logs my laptop is failing to detect the device. I use a Dell XPS 15 and need the DA100 adapter for LAN and display

So I found the solution to the problem by installing the official driver for ubuntu 18.04 (https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1261) and the real problem was hidden here for me https://support.displaylink.com/know...rticles/641668: I was using Wayland Ubuntu GUI system and it is reported that "Wayland is currently not supported" as one of the limitations. When started another Ubuntu GUI system everything works like a baeuty and I have my 2 monitors!
