Solution:1

To use this device you will need to use the DisplayLink driver

http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/ubuntu

This works with my displaylink2hdtrio device which i would guess is the same as your screen. The driver looks like it should work with other debian systems

amias@rome:~/Downloads$ sudo ./displaylink-driver-1.2.58.run   Verifying archive integrity... All good.  Uncompressing DisplayLink Linux Driver 1.2.58  100%    DisplayLink Linux Software 1.2.58 install script called: install  Distribution discovered: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS  Installing  Configuring EVDI DKMS module  Registering EVDI kernel module with DKMS  Building EVDI kernel module with DKMS  Installing EVDI kernel module to kernel tree  EVDI kernel module built successfully  Installing x64-ubuntu-1604/DisplayLinkManager  Installing libraries  Installing firmware packages  Installing license file  Adding udev rule for DisplayLink DL-3xxx/5xxx devices  

After this go to the Control Center and you should see an additional monitor in the screen

Something to bare in mind is the refresh rate is really low because of the low data rates of USB2, this meant that connecting this display made all the other displays i use drop down to 30hz which felt horribly laggy compared to the normal 60hz.

You might be able to tweak it a bit with xrandr and cvt but don't expect to show video. Its fine for text mode displays from say a servers framebuffer but its not good for a desktop.

Don't be tempted to unplug this device if this display is still active, it will crash X when its unplugged. You will need to disable the display first.

If you are buying this in the UK you could just try it and return it in accordance with the distance selling regulations, might cost you the postage.
