Default ghost images and trails

Has anyone else notice that the trails are very pronounced when watching a video in VLC? Nearly unusable.

Hello,

I've encountered Ghosting on a Dell Vostro 3750 Laptop, Ubuntu 16.04, DisplayLink Driver 1.2.65 and Unity Desktop.

Especial Java based Applications like Eclipse and Qsys from Intel/Altera.
In Java based applications most of the time I saw only a grey background
Using VLC showed Ghosting when expanding the Video to Fullscreen. Watching Videos in their native resolution worked.

When using the internal graphics of the laptop every thing works fine.


To get me back working I switched from Unity to Gnome Flashback (Compiz). Gnome Flashback (Metacity) worked better than Untity desktop but not as fas as good as Compiz.
By the way: CPU consumption of the driver dropped from 30% (Unity) to 5% (Compiz).

Default Version 1.3.52 is fixing the issue for me

I tried 1.3.52 version and it works! No ghost images, no other issues so far.

My system:
- Ubuntu 14.04 with Metacity
- kernel: 4.4.0-62

So, thank you DisplayLink people for the update!
