Hi there. New Fedora user.
It’s been a whole week trying to make my setup with an asus usb portable monitor (M169B+).
I’ve tested to make it work first on Mint then on Ubuntu without success - Mint was displaying but was making cursor visual artifacts. Both needed DisplayLink to be installed only was I able to install it on Mint due to dependencies issues with Ubuntu.
So now I’m trying with Fedora 32, interface is nice, I have less compatibility troubles than Mint, and more comfort than with Ubuntu, but I still struggle with DisplayLink installation :
I’m trying to install :
but it answers :
Verifying archive integrity… 100% All good.
Uncompressing DisplayLink Linux Driver 184.108.40.206 100%
DisplayLink Linux Software 220.127.116.11 install script called:
WARNING: This is not an officially supported distribution.
Please use DisplayLink Forum for getting help if you find issues.
Unsatisfied dependencies. Missing component: libdrm.
This is a fatal error, cannot install DisplayLink Linux Software.
But checking libdrm gives me this :
$ sudo dnf install libdrm
Last metadata expiration verfication realised 0:35:02 ago on mon. 14 sept. 2020 15:41:56.
libdrm-2.4.102-1.fc32.x86_64 package is already installed.
Nothing to do.
It’s been 2 days now, I’ve tested quite a lot of things :
- testing other DisplayLink versions
- installling libdrm-devel
- installing kernel-headers for the Fedora 32 version
- making some other installation tweak modifying the installation package itself from a Stackoverflow recommendation (worked for Mint)
I realy am clueless about how to make it work - still trying though, so maybe someone around here could find what’s going on …
