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.

@PlusMinus, thanks!

Use "evdi-git" instead of "evdi" package from AUR. Both "evdi" and "evdi-pre-release" didn't compile for me.

I finally got to updating the package. Tested with evdi-git und linux-lts but it did compile with linux as well (didn't boot with it yet).

The 'evdi and evdi-pre-release' packages are also maintained by PlusMinus.

I'm traveling at the moment and without my laptop, I can not compile or test the packages at this time. But I think momentarily you can change the PKGBUILD and change it making it meet your needs and communicate to PlusMinus, which gives it a check.

As soon as I return from the trip I check how the package settings are. A big hug to everyone.

@VSOuz4 I try the following changes on PKGBUILD


+DLAGENTS=('http::/usr/bin/wget -O %o --post-
data=fileId=993&accept_submit=Accept %u')

I can confirm the package it is built, but there is an error on evdi. Looking on src, the evdi file is called evdi-1.3.54-src.tar.gz. I extracted and compiled and the compilation was succesful.

This compilation is failing on the evdi packages, evdi and evdi-pre-release, but it works on evdi-git.

@jmbarrios, i talked with PlusMinus, he is in contact with the driver developers to align a solution without future problems, as soon as he has answers he will be updating the package with the correct solutions.

As for the problem with evdi, check to see which version is trying to install, otherwise I'm wrong, the new version of the displaylink driver requires a more current version of evdi. As I have not yet purchased my Dell dockstation, I have not had any way to install and test the driver effectively.

I can confirm that the solution by @vS0uz4 works to download th driver file. But the package does not work for me, this because the evdi kernel driver can not be compiled.
My kernel is 4.12.4-1-ARCH

As I mentioned, I was able to resolve the issue of downloading the driver file, I am sharing with you the github repository with the changes made, so that you can update the package.

No more, congratulations.
