DisplayLink’s support targets Ubuntu, however the driver consists of an open-source kernel mode driver with an accompanying library, and a supporting binary application compatible with Intel x86 and x64 platforms. This design flexibility enables repackaging by the open source community for use in other Linux distributions. DisplayLink provides an article explaining how this can be done on their website.
