DisplayLink is a common technology used in a lot of docking stations. It allows multiple monitors/peripherals over a single USB-C cable.
There can be some tricks to DisplayLink on Fedora, namely because Fedora uses very new kernels.
Theres a GitHub repository that builds and packages the driver called
Sometimes you need to build the
devel branch of the EVDI driver if the version of kernel is new.
This can be done by doing the following:
sudo dnf install -y rpm-build make gcc glibc-devel.x86_64 glibc-devel.i686
# Clone the displaylink-rpm repo
git clone https://github.com/displaylink-rpm/displaylink-rpm.git ~/Projects/displaylink-rpm
# Downloads the devel branch of the EVDI project
# Build and package the driver as an RPM
# Install the RPM
sudo dnf install ./x86_64/displaylink-1.12.0-1.github_evdi.x86_64.rpm
# Reboot then check the status of the driver
sudo systemctl status displaylink-driver.service
