Unhappy Unable to work DisplayLink USB A to HDMI Adapter

I recently acquired a 3rd monitor but the port on my GPU is broken so i only have 2 rather than 3, so I bought a DisplayLink USB A to HDMI adapter from CableMatters, however, even after following the instructions on the Arch Linux Wiki i still cannot use the third screen in anyway.

Kernel: 6.4.10-zen2-1
Distribution: Arch Linux
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
GPU: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Super
Desktop Environment: KDE

I followed all the way through the following web-page in an attempt to get it working but to no avail. https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/DisplayLink

Thumbs up Fixed, sorta...

So using the Ubuntu installer, it worked and now my display exists, but it stops updating if my mouse isn't on the screen, so right now, typing this, i don't see anything until i move my mouse, does anyone know anything about this?

I tried to follow the section of the Arch Wiki page for this exact issue but it did not solve the issue
