For those who don't want to keep xorg-server in holdpkg I've uploaded version 1.19 to AUR:

It's a bit newer then latest 1.19 from official extra.

displaylink.service has After=display-manager.service that makes display-manager not reorganize displaylink monitor (for first time), I wonder if it should be Before=display-manager.service ? I've changed it and now display-manager(lightdm) can reorganize my displaylink correctly .

I just tried the latest versions of displaylink (4.2.29-1) and evdi-pre-release (1.5.0-4) with kernel version 4.17.2-1 and am seeing success (I was needing to use LTS up till now). I have not tried with the latest versions of the xorg-server*, xf86-video-intel however. Will try later today.

@kaipee2 - Thanks for spelling that out for me.

I also had to downgrade from xf86-video-fbdev 0.4.4+13+g9af7f81-1 to xf86-video-fbdev-0.4.4+12+ge0bce0d-1 as the former conflicts with xorg-server<1.20.

Just a note that this is still broken with xorg-server 1.20. Downgrading all packages works:

pacman -U xorg-server-1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xf86-video-intel-1:2.99.917+823+gd9bf46e4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xorg-server-common-1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xorg-server-xwayland-1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz xf86-video-vesa-2.4.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

If you have a problem starting DisplayLink service (modprobe: FATAL: Module evdi not found in directory /lib/modules/xxx ). You need to have linux-headers package installed so that evdi module can be installed.

@K5HV Perfect xorg-server downgrade !

jnvandermeer commented on 2018-05-23 08:09

Thanks should go to @K5HV for the downgrade workaround :-)

@Durburz I can also confirm that this solution does not work.

@jnvandermeer I had forgotten that I had switched to a different branch than in AUR for evdi about a year ago, I switched back to the latest AUR release (evdi-pre-release 1.5.0-4) and all is working! I miss bleeding edge, but DisplayLink, regrettably, is a must now. Thanks for your workaround, and thanks @PlusMinus for the continued support!
