model: HIS Multi-View II(model id: 2291)
possible other names of the device:
DisplayLink DL-195
SIIG JU-DV0112-S1
SIIG USB 2.0 to DVI/VGA Pro
StarTech USB2DVIPRO2
vendor:
DisplayLink
VendorID:ProductID code of the device:
17e9:028f
year of commercialization:
2009
interface:
USB
tested on:
PureOS 10.0 Byzantium
tested with the following kernel libre:
5.10.0-14-amd64
how does it work with free software?
works, but without 3D acceleration
free driver used:
udl
Description:

Interface is USB 2.0. Tested with PureOS Byzantium KDE amd64 ISO from 2022-02-22.

Requires manual configuration:

  1. Blacklist udlfb driver to work around Debian Bug 1011986: echo "blacklist udlfb" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/displaylink.conf
  2. sudo apt install arandr
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Connect display to USB device.
  5. Connect USB device to PC.
  6. xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0
  7. ARandR will now show a new DVI-I-1-1 output.
  8. Activate that new output in ARandR.

Some hardware functionality, e.g. 24-bit color depth and Huffman compression, is not supported with free drivers (but works fine with non-free drivers). I didn't test full 1920x1200 resolution; my test display only supports up to 1280x1024 (which works fine). Sometimes, hotplugging will crash X11. I only had success with X11; Wayland only gave me a black screen on the DisplayLink output (maybe there's a Wayland incantation I don't know about).

This device contains non-free firmware running on an 8051/MCS-51 core. This firmware is not loaded by the host, so it doesn't violate GNU FSDG, but it may be objectionable to users who are stricter on firmware freedom than FSF is.
