Support Linux with DL-3000 Series Chips

This petition had 1,281 supporters


DisplayLink DL-3000 series chips are used in all USB 3.0 devices that offer video support, including docks, display adapters, and port replicators. As most manufacturers have adopted USB 3.0 devices and have started to end of life the earlier USB 2.0 models, DisplayLink has a chokehold on whether Linux will ever be able to use USB 3.0 devices for video.

DisplayLink has refused to support linux or the community until sufficient interest is shown, or there's better linux "support for the DL-1x5

Devices using DisplayLink DL-3000 series chips includes:

  • Asus Varidrive Docks
  • Belkin USB 3.0 Dual Video Docking Stand for Ultrabooks
  • Fujitsu USB 3.0 Port Replicators
  • HP USB 3.0 Port Replicators
  • Kensington USB 3.0 Docks
  • Kensington USB 3.0 to DVI Display Adapters
  • Lenovo USB 3.0 Docks
  • Pluggable USB 3.0 Docking Stations
  • Pluggable USB 3.0 to VGA/DVI/HDMI Adapters
  • SIIG USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapters
  • StarTech USB 3.0 to DisplayPort Adapters
  • StarTech USB 3.0 to HDMI and DVI Dual Monitor Adapters
  • Targus USB 3.0 Dual Video Docking Stations
