@PlusMinus I also have dual USB 3.0 displaylink monitors, but I'm also having problems with only one of them displaying. Do we know if mesa is reviewing this; it seems several months have now passed.

It's working after years of waiting for using my USB3 AOC screen on my Arch system, until now only able to connect to Window$. Great!

Only problem is the flickering of the cursor, on both screens, when watching videos. No flickering when what's displayed is static.

@dirschn I am using a display attached via usb, on arch linux kernel 4.13.8, lenovo T430 thinkpad. I experience similar screen/system freeze issue for the last 4-5 months. As I plug-in my external usb monitor, it detects and works fine. Until I hover my mouse over the XFCE menu, or press Alt-F2 to start an application, as the mouse cursor icon changes to "waiting" symbol, systems freezes. I have to reboot.

I was able to resolve the issue two weeks ago, and it started to work fine until the latest kernel update, broke it again.

EDIT: Today, the monitor does not get switched on. So the issue is now even deeper. This is related with the following link I assume:

Re-EDIT: I believe my problem is also described here:

Is anyone else having the issue where the displaylink monitor will turn on, but after a couple minutes the whole system will freeze? It was happening on an old install of Arch, and persists after a fresh install, and happens with both evdi-pre-release and evdi-git.

Not that I know of.

@PlusMinus Did the mesa issue ever get resolved?

This package seems to be totally broken, unable to build any of the suggested solutions (evdi, evdi-git), both installed with error/warnings but will not enable me installing displaylink package that fails on build.

Just a heads up, the recent mesa update broke my set-up with two external monitors. One worked just fine, two didn't.
