Something broke again yesterday (or a few days earlier). While on my UD22 the DP is still working I am missing now a lot of USB-Connections. Only one front USB-A and the front USB-C are working correctly. My Workarround for now was to utelize the USB of my Monitor. Worked yesterday before the update.

I thought that displaylink broke again, but it was just a faulty HDMI cable. All good - linux 6.6.2-arch1-1, displaylink 5.8-1, evdi-git 1.14.1.r2.ga943d98-1 (except for those 4 long hours I've wasted trying to diagnose this...)

Yep, it's working for me as well (evdi-git 1.14.1.r1.g495e8cf-1, displaylink 5.8-1, linux 6.6.1.arch1-1). Thank you very much! I've had to reenable the displaylink screen in the KDE display configuration dropdown (I was away without the second screen for a few days).

5.8.1-version works fine with evdi-git (Manjaro kernel 6.6.1) Thx. :-)

You should be able to install evdi-git if you want to use latest kernels 6.6 and up. evdi package will follow tagged releases only.

Hola, a mí me ha funcionado desintalar el displaylink y el paquete evdi he instalar el paquete evdi-git de forma manual luego procedí a instalar display link y pudo arrancar el servicio nuevamente los pasos son los siguientes primero eliminar displaylink y cualquier paquete de evdi para el kernel 6.6.1-arch1-1

git clone

cd evdi-git


sudo packman -U nombre del paquete evdi generado por makepkg

paru -Syu displaylink

sudo systemctl start displaylink.service

y listo todo funciona nuevamente, el problema se puede ver /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.14.03/build/make.log

he probado todo con paru directamente y también funciona elimino primero cualquier paquete de evdi y displaylink luego instlar

paru -Syu evdi-git

paru -Syu displaylink

sudo systemctl start displaylink.service

y sin problemas todo vuelve a funcionar correctamente, observación estoy usando el controlador xf86-video-vesa

Having trouble building this one due to makepkg claiming the .zip has a checksum mismatch.

The 6.6.1 kernel also cannot compile the evdi DKMS module. A downgrade to 6.5.9-arch2-1 is required.

Checked out eff217972604 and it seems to have built now using 6.5.9-arch2-1.

Can confirm, on version 6.1.62 and displaylink 5.8-1 it was enough to replace evdi-compat-git with evdi to fix the issue.

On LTS, replacing evdi-compat-git with evdi was enough to fix this.

I am unable to get this to work properly on kernel 6.1.1, with evdi/evdi-git/evdi-compat-git. My display shows up and I can move a window to it with keyboard shortcuts, but as soon as i move my cursor to it, it disconnects and DisplayLinkMana core dumps. I am using a dell D6000 and Arch, latest of any evdi or displaylink
