Hello vhp1

Thanks for contacting us with your problem.

1. Have you added a workaround for recent X problems as described in http://support.displaylink.com/knowl...ent-x-upgrades [Workaround 2]? Please remember to reboot your computer after adding a conf file.
Did it resolve your problem? If not...

2. Does this problem still exists after logout/login or reboot your computer with device attached to it?

Waiting for your reply,
Adam

Thumbs up Resolved

Hi Adam:

Thank you so much! The "Workaround 2" works!

It is surprising, because I tried the same workaround before starting this forum thread, and it did not work back then.
