DisplayLink Video - Ubuntu 16.10 - 1 FPS Issue: Fixed

March 12, 2017

I ran into an issue using my Dell USB 3.0 dock when I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.10 on my Dell XPS-13. I was getting ~1 FPS using the DisplayLink driver. I ended up having to turn off VSync. Hopefully DisplayLink releases an update soon to fix this.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf:

Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics"
Driver "intel"
Option "VSync" "false"
EndSection
