Customer reply replied 2 months ago
when I install the DisplayLink USB Graphics Software (v.1.3.54). According to this article,
http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/615714-how-to-install-displaylink-software#ubuntu
the installation is supposed to run
"Starting DLM upstart job
displaylink start/running, process 3397"
however, my installation stops at "adding udev rule for DisplayLink DL - 3xxx/5xxx devices
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I know that 16.04 uses systemd instead of upstart but nonetheless nothing runs after "adding udev rule"
Tech Support Specialist: Kris R, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 months ago

OK I'm not 100% sure here so I am going to opt out for another expert to have a look at this for you.

Thanks

Hi,
I'm trying to connect an ASUS MB169B+ with my Razer Blade Stealth laptop running Ubuntu 16.04.
I verified using other hardware that my USB ports are working, and my monitor connects to my Mac.After installing the DisplayLink USB Graphics Software (v.1.3.54), my laptop is able to detect the monitor and I am able to drag and drop to the new monitor and both screens appear when I take screenshots. However, my ASUS monitor continues to show only a black screen and the mouse on my laptop continuously flickers.One thing to note, when installing the DisplayLink driver, according to this installation guide,
http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/615714-how-to-install-displaylink-software#ubuntu
the installation is supposed to run
"Starting DLM upstart job
displaylink start/running, process 3397"
however, my installation stops at "adding udev rule for DisplayLink DL - 3xxx/5xxx devices.
I know that Ubuntu 16.04 uses systemd instead of upstart but nonetheless nothing runs after "adding udev rule"I also tried changing the installation script like so

but no luck.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
