The driver does not recognize your device. Maye try their older driver.

Okay so I downloaded their older driver. I tried to install it, but got a problem which I think means that I need to uninstall the previous driver first?:

Code:
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

DisplayLink Linux Software 1.2.58 install script called: install
Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS

ln: failed to create symbolic link '/lib/systemd/system-sleep/displaylink.sh': File exists
Job for dlm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status dlm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Could someone tell me how I can remove the previous driver before trying to install the new one?

Thank you!

Do you have the files for the new driver still? Look for a logfile of some sort which lists all the files it installed.

hmm... I do have the files for the new driver, but there is just a licence and a .run file.

ls -l /lib/systemd/system-sleep/displaylink.sh please. If we're lucky they kept everything in one sane place.

Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 Sep 27 10:39 /lib/systemd/system-sleep/displaylink.sh -> /opt/displaylink/suspend.sh

Looks like they may have done the smart thing and crammed all their own files under /opt/ and linked to them instead of strewing them all over the filesystem, this may make it easier to track them all down.

Code:
find / -lname '/opt/displaylink/*' 2>/dev/null
