Display link does not work for me

Hello Everyone,

I’m currently having issues using the WAVLINK ug7602hc on my PC, I’m using a Lenovo Legion 5 15ACH6, My Kernel is Linux 6.3.5-2-MANJARO x86_64 i’m running Manjaro KDE . I read somewhere that the displaylink should work with this device. I have followed the steps here Displaylink to the letter, However i still cannot get my monitors up and running, I have tried this on Windows Partition and it works perfectly fine.

Please what information would you require that i share?

I also installed evdi 1.14.0 and displaylink 5.7-1 and displaylink-cobbect 3.3.0-1

I’ll really appreciate any help

Hi @Samuelseggs,

Seeing as this isn’t your first time here, you should know this already. but in any case, in order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, more information is necessary. To that end, please see:

Hope you manage!

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

To provide terminal output, copy the text you wish to share, and paste it here, surrounded by three (3) backticks, a.k.a grave accents. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

Portaest sed
cursus nisl nisi
hendrerit ac quis
tortor sit leo commodo.

Instead of like this:

Portaest sed elementum cursus nisl nisi hendrerit ac quis sit adipiscing tortor sit leo commodo.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby improving legibility and making it much easier for those trying to be of assistance.

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

Please edit your post accordingly.

There is a X.org siliconmotion video driver package in the AUR (xf86-video-siliconmotion), maybe try that first.

$ pamac search siliconmotion
xf86-video-siliconmotion                                                                                                                                                                                                                        1.7.9-1  AUR
X.org siliconmotion video driver

So, using pamac:

pamac build xf86-video-siliconmotion

But perhaps refresh your database first:

pamac update
 pamac build xf86-video-siliconmotion                                                                                                                                                               Preparing...

I have installed xf86-video-siliconmotion 1.7.9-1 what next?
