With Ubuntu 20.04 due out in the next month, I would be most interested in beta testing any new drivers that support this release...

I'm facing same issue after upgrading from 19.10 to 20.04
Displays are not working anymore and I'm not able to use them at all.

For those who in the same situation, you can use an opensource drivers which worked for me https://github.com/AdnanHodzic/displaylink-debian

The displaylink-debian definitely installs focal based drivers (it shows as it installs):

During the installation it downloads from our friendly neighbourhood DisplayLink webpage:
Quote:
DisplayLink Linux Software 5.2.14 install script called: install
Distribution discovered: Ubuntu Focal Fossa (development branch)
The github page where you likely found displaylink-debian also mentions that it downloads from the displaylink site then does some patching and installing of items...

I'm still trying to iron out some things as am new to displaylink, but hope this helps...

Same situation here, just upgraded to 20.04 and the secondary display stoped working, i use a thinkpad dock connected to the laptop and got it to work on Ubuntu 19 with the latest displaylink driver, now even reinstalling the driver it does not work.

I have tried the open source drivers advised here but even after following all the steps it does not work either.
Any update soon ?

If you look into the log you can see the flex command is not installed, install by

Code:
sudo aprt-get install flex
But next you will get an new problem and another and it will fail anyhow.

An option I used is https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1369 it possible to run and get DisplayLink to work for 20.04 version.

I have the same issue

I installed flex, bison, libelf-dev
but still the installation fails.

I bought 3 x displaylink devices last week - pls support and update the driver for the newest kernel

Also it is a shame that in 2020 and Ubuntu 20.04 installation instruction is dated 2014 and mentiones ubuntu 14 :/
