Bad News:

You expected to struggle with this. You expected that this will be as tricky as it used to be. Rotten luck, chum.

Good news:

Create a file called called:

60-plugable.conf

Via this path:

/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/60-plugable.conf

With this as the contents:

Section “Device”
  Identifier “displaylink”
  driver “fbdev”
  Option “fbdev” “/dev/fb1”
  Option “ShadowFB” “off”
EndSection
Section “Monitor”
  Identifier “monitor”
EndSection
Section “Screen”
  Identifier “screen”
  Device “displaylink”
  Monitor “monitor”
EndSection

Section “ServerLayout”
  Identifier “default”
  Screen 0 “screen” 0 0
EndSection

Restart your Pi.

Win.

PLEASE NOTE: If you want to use the DisplayLink USB screen as a dual-view, setup, change “/dev/fb1” to “/dev/fb2” in the 60-plugable.conf file.
