Where are you reading that displaylink requires a separate keyboard and
mouse? libdlo supports the chip and the protocol not any specific device.
While not immediately usefull overall I think this is a +1 since I've
received several requests via the support gang list on how to make the
USB VGA adapter work. Many have tried and seems everyone but the
original has failed. USB projectors are listed as products that might
be useful (if the have the currently spported chip or when other chips
All the the requests for a USB video were so they could hook it up to a
projector for training classes. The possibility of USB projector support
seems very worthwhile.
If none of the projectors are supported yet then there's not much point
in adding it to the build but if someone gets a projector working then
we certainly should support it.
