Tips and Tricks / Re: How to Install DisplayLink Drivers on NuTyX
« Last post by Thierry on Wed Sep 21 08:04:46 2022 »
Hello @ndawka

Welcome to the NuTyX forums.

I Thank you very much for this excellent Trick to install DisplayLink driver.
I was always wondering if a solution was already existing on Linux (as it exist since long time now on windows).

I got my answer.

BR,

Tips and Tricks / Re: How to Install DisplayLink Drivers on NuTyX

A few more additions, that did not fit in, because of a word count limit:

Dependencies:
Code: [Select]
sudo cards install git make
Prerequisites:
Reboot the computer, after installing Linux Kernel Headers. Even though in my case NuTyX implemented them without a reboot, in some cases it is necessary to do so.

Clarification:
Code: [Select]
make install needs to be run as a superuser, so it should be
Code: [Select]
sudo make install

Tips and Tricks / How to Install DisplayLink Drivers on NuTyX
« Last post by ndawka on Mon Sep 19 13:03:15 2022 »
Introduction:
DisplayLink technology makes it simple to connect any display to any computer that supports USB or Wi-Fi and provides universal solutions for a range of corporate, home and embedded applications where easy connectivity of displays enhances productivity. With DisplayLink, expanding your visual workspace has never been easier or more affordable. This technology makes it really easy to connect any display to any computer. We call this Plug and Display. Look for the DisplayLink certified Plug and Display logo on your favorite docking station.

Limitations:
  • The release notes state, that the official Kernel Range supported, is 4.15 to 5.17, however 5.18 and 5.19 also work.  This has not been tested with kernel 4.14 LTS and might not work, or might work partially.
  • Minimum version of Xorg supported is 1.16 and minimum version of Mutter (Wayland) supported, is 3.32.
  • This driver supports up to 2 monitors and up to 4K resolutions. Performance with more monitors and higher resolutions have not been tested.
  • The official distribution is for Ubuntu distributions only, so stability is not guaranteed and support would not be provided.
  • Setting a primary display did not work in my case (it did work on other distributions, such as Ubuntu and Fedora. This issue might specifically occur because kernel 5.19 is not officially supported).
Prerequisites:
  • Please upgrade your NuTyX installation to get the latest dependencies.
Code: [Select]
sudo cards upgrade
Dependencies:
libdrm
Code: [Select]
sudo cards install xorg-libdrm xorg-libdrm.develDKMS
Code: [Select]
cd /tmp
git clone https://github.com/dell/dkms
cd dkms
make install
Linux Kernel Headers
Code: [Select]
sudo cards install cards.devel kernel.develHeaders will automatically be updated with the kernel. For more info relate to:
Install the kernel headers via the kernel.devel package. You will probably need cards.devel as well. Some more might be needed. Repeat the command with the package required:

Code: [Select]
sudo cards install cards.devel kernel.devel
Quote
Since NuTyX is rolling release, it would be very difficult to install headers for the kernel upon each update
Don't worry about it, ones they are installed, they will be updated together with your kernel.

Best regards
Thierry

Installation
In the following, replace the "version" part with the version number, e.g. 5.6.1-59.184.
Navigate to the directory with the displaylink-driver-version.run file (/tmp in this case).
Code: [Select]
cd /tmp
chmod +x displaylink-driver-version.run
./displaylink-driver-version.run --noexec --keep
cd displaylink-driver-version
chmod +x displaylink-installer.sh
./displaylink-installer.sh
It should now be installed. If you are using XORG, reboot may be necessary.

Issues:
If you run into any issues, solutions may be:

Uninstall/Upgrade
To uninstall the DisplayLink driver, please fetch the installed Ubuntu driver from https://www.synaptics.com/products/displaylink-graphics/downloads/ubuntu (find the installed version in the "Legacy Drivers" dropdown), extract the .zip archive into /tmp.
In the following, replace the "version" part with the version number, e.g. 5.6.1-59.184.
Navigate to the directory with the displaylink-driver-version.run file (/tmp in this case).
Code: [Select]
cd /tmp
chmod +x displaylink-driver-version.run
./displaylink-driver-version.run --noexec --keep
cd displaylink-driver-version
chmod +x displaylink-installer.sh
./displaylink-installer.sh uninstall
Reboot is necessary.

To upgrade the driver follow the Uninstallation steps, then, after the reboot, download the latest version and complete the "Prerequisites" and "Installation" sectionss. Dependencies should not have changed. If you run into any issues refer to the "Issues" section.
Since the upgrade process requires uninstallation of the driver, the reboot and reinstallation will have to be performed without the DisplayLink driver.

Enjoy!

General / DKMS and Linux Kernel Headers
« Last post by ndawka on Sun Sep 18 06:38:09 2022 »
Hello!

I have been trying to install EVDI, that requires both DKMS and Linux Kernel Headers. DKMS isn't too much of a problem, it is possible, to compile DKMS from source. What needs to be done with kernel headers? Since NuTyX is rolling release, it would be very difficult to install headers for the kernel upon each update. Is there a way to install some kernel headers package, or similar?

This is the error, that I specifically get:
Quote
Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/evdi/1.12.0/source -> /usr/src/evdi-1.12.0
Error! Your kernel headers for kernel 5.19.8-NuTyX cannot be found at /lib/modules/5.19.8-NuTyX/build or /lib/modules/5.19.8-NuTyX/source.
Please install the linux-headers-5.19.8-NuTyX package or use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located.
Deleting module evdi-1.12.0 completely from the DKMS tree.
ERROR: Failed to install evdi to the kernel tree.

General / Re: Viber won't work
« Last post by ndawka on Sat Sep 10 11:37:18 2022 »
It generaly depends on the package you installed, but the common way to go is to start by checking the details of the installed Flatpak application (using
Quote
grep
can specifically help find an application, if we know it contains a partial string) e.g.
Quote
flatpak list | grep viber
(grep is case-sensitive, so try capitalising the "v" in "viber" if no results are initially found to see, if that works). That should give you the application ID (along the lines of
Quote
com.developer.application
). Just copy the application ID and enter
Quote
flatpak run application id
in the terminal. That will launch the application verbosely and therefore should display any errors.

After new update, flatpak is working.
 Viber won't work with appimages, downloaded two different appimages.
 Started flatpak version, it won't start.
 Tried from console - as "viber" - no such application. How to start flatpak Viber from terminal ?

Sorry, flatpak won't work.
 Reinstalled CA-Certificates.

Hello and thank you in advance.
I have installed Viber via flatpak, but it won't start.
 Downloaded two different appimages, official and unofficial. Both won't work, both can't start.
 Thank you.
