[SOLVED] LM19 mouse flickering and lagging with docking station

Post by leicai » Sun Sep 30, 2018 9:21 am

Dear all,
I recently installed LM19 and extended a second monitor with docking station UD3900.
I recorded a video and uploaded to Youtube and you can see the mouse flickers and lags:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpr-bHnjUEw&t=5s.
The similar problem can be found in the link:https://askubuntu.com/questions/947375/ ... 92#1027692.
If I don't use the docking station and use the HDMI output interface. It works well. But I need two external monitors.
The following is the output of inxi -Fxz:

Have you seen the Linux section on the Plugable home page?

https://plugable.com/platforms/linux/

Unfortunately I don't see your device listed there.

Dear all,
The problem is solved by the new update of DisplayLink manager.
The new update for Ubuntu 18.04 was released:https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu.

FIrst run this in terminal to uninstall older displaylink manager:

Code: Select all

sudo displaylink-installer uninstall
Second, install the new version(go to your directory of "displaylink-driver-4.4.24.run"):

Code: Select all

sduo ./displaylink-driver-4.4.24.run
restart your computer.

Do be upset when you find the flickering still exists, use the following code:

Code: Select all

sudo service lightdm restart
as I mentioned in this link:https://askubuntu.com/questions/947375/ ... 92#1027692

Thanks so much for the engineers of the new updates.
Do not hesitate to discuss with me if you have any problems.
