Support for ASUS MB MB168B+ 15.6-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor

Hi all.

Looking to add onto my Lenovo Y510P laptop. What I would really like to do is add this ASUS MB MB168B+ 15.6-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor as a secondary monitor. It runs power and screen all through USB3, which my laptop has.

I was wondering if anyone has used this before and how well supported it is on Arch. I would really rather not spend $200 on a device that I cannot get to work.

Thanks for any feedback!

Fortunately, now we can.

I use MicrosoftSurfacePro2 + AsusMB168+, Manjaro(Arch) + KDE.
Bewrare the driver is still premature stage.


```

sudo modprobe udl

systemctl enable displaylink.service
systemctl start displaylink.service
systemctl status displaylink.service
xrandr --listproviders

xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0
xrandr --output DVI-1-0 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of eDP1

I followed the above instructions and got an ASUS MB168B+ to display properly in 1024 x 768 (4:3) but not 1366 x 768 (16:9), in which case the display looks like a bunch of diagonal streaks.  My laptop (ASUS Q324UA) screen is 1920 x 1080 (16:9).  I would greatly appreciate any commiseration or potential fixes.  Thanks!

rogerjin, please open a new thread for your problem.  This thread is very old and should not be necrobumped.
