why did you install the developer-git instead of the usual evdi package ?
use pamac to install.

pamac install displaylink evdi
Fehler: Ziel nicht gefunden: displaylink

cant find the package on pamac

I’m using the git version because I read that in one of the threads. However, the regular version doesn’t work either.

systemctl status displaylink.service

i paste the status in the top :smiley:

uname -a

Linux rootware 6.5.13-7-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Wed Dec 20 07:15:58 UTC 2023 x86_64 GNU/Linux

any news ?

I know this is a little older, but I just troubleshooted this myself.

I had to uname -r then download the appropriate linux-headers,

In my case it was sudo pacman -Syu linux69-headers.

Hopefully you checked that!
