Installation displaylink error: Unknown option -title


I’ve been trying to install the displaylink driver (besides getting it to work which is a different story). Just the installation of the version. It keeps failing with the following log:

 ==> Retrieving sources...
   -> Found
   -> Found
   -> Found 99-displaylink.rules
   -> Found displaylink.service
   -> Found

 Adding udev rule for DisplayLink DL-3xxx/5xxx devices
 Installing DLM systemd service
 Extracting DisplayLink Driver Package
 # Failed to parse arguments: Unknown option -title
 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I’m using the 5.9.11-3 kernel, have Gnome, have the headers installed, it chooses the 1.7.3 evdi package… Not sure what else is/could be relevant.

Does it work for others (on a fresh-ish install)?

displaylink is an AUR package.

Thank you very much for the polite answer to a newbie question

I had the same Problem a few weeks ago and ended up installing it with yay. -> “yay displaylink”

It is a know pamac issue, something like spawning a terminal in pamac gui not working
