Got to a random temporary folder, clone and build from source:
cd <temp-folder>
git clone git@github.com:DisplayLink/evdi.git
cd evdi
List all installed versions of evdi: ("evdi/<version>" is what you are looking for)
dkms status
Uninstall current version of evdi (if the latest version (currently 1.12.0 is not installed at all, this step is unnecessary)), if you want you can uninstall earlier versions, too
sudo dkms remove -m evdi -v 1.12.0 --all
Create the dkms source folder and copy the newly built files into the dkms folder:
sudo mkdir /usr/src/evdi-1.12.0/
cd /usr/src/evdi-1.12.0/
sudo cp <temp-folder>/evdi/module/* .
Register the dkms module:
sudo dkms add -m evdi -v 1.12.0
sudo dkms build -m evdi -v 1.12.0
sudo dkms install -m evdi -v 1.12.0
If after a reboot, it does not just start working, re-run ubuntu installer (from and following the instructions https://www.synaptics.com/products/d...wnloads/ubuntu):
sudo ./displaylink-driver-5.6.1-59.184.run
These instructions worked for me on Fedora 36 with kernel version 6.0.5-200. Thank you so much for the help!
