Hi Barton, Justin, Jared, et al, can you please talk to Displaylink to get them to fix the current issues with the D3100 docking station? I know Dell has outsourced the driver for their product to Displaylink. So far they've done a good job...but since end of April (!!!!) it's no longer working with the current driver (February 2017). A  lot of customers are complaining on the displaylink forum, just like I do: but apparently Displaylink doesn't care. They could at least respond that they're working on it. I'd love to open a case with them, but I haven't found a way yet.... could you *please* tell me how I could open a case with Displaylink so that it's officially recorded that their driver isn't working anymore. I hope I didn't shell out 150 Euros for a broken Docking station....would be a shame!!http://displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?p=83621&posted=1#post83621

Hi all, just so you know, I have given up on Dell's DA200....I don't see it working any time soon, although I have forwarded them patches and resolved bug reports from the Linux community. It's just pathetic and ignorant that Dell refuses to integrate this, so that their customers could actually benefit from it. I received this message from one of the Dell employees more than a month ago "Regarding DA200. Our scope of support for Ubuntu doesn't include DA200. However, I do know that high level Dell people are talking about it and there may be more support for that in the future. No ETA at this time." Therefore I decided to move on and regret having wasted 70 euros on a worthless piece of garbage. It's beyond me how Dell refuses to support one of their very own products.... especially considering that this Laptop (Dell XPS 13) doesn't leave much room for other choices, since there is no native HDMI, Displayport, or Ethernet port... thus people are relying on *working* adapters, unfortunately not everything is wireless yet. Anyway, I will think twice before I will buy another Dell product..... just so you know, I will continue to post this "rant" on my blog and as an Amazon review to save others from making the same mistake..... maybe this will make Dell wake up.....

@Barton, Jared, Justin: is there any update on the DA200 adapter incompatibility with Ubuntu? As addressed here: en.community.dell.com/.../20003547 by the way: my touchpad issue also isn't resolved (blacklisting the psmouse driver only helped temporarily) ...it's blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/xps13-9360.conf.... i created a service request for this.
Also, it would be cool, if I knew how I could open a service request for Ubuntu-based XPS laptops.... (regarding my touchpad) issue.

I'm still using Ubuntu 16.04 that was shipped with the XPS13, that currently runs the 4.4.0-62-generic kernel. Will the patch (as posted in my initial post) also be integrated into the 4.4.x kernel? Please, work on this, otherwise the DA200 is a 70-euro worthless piece of plastic to me :'(
Jared, do you have an update for me regarding opening service requests for XPS laptops running Ubuntu? also, is there any news/update on the DA200? When will this approximately work on Ubuntu?

Thanks Jared, but my problem is that I can't open a service request, because Dell System Detect will always try to download a windows script that can only be run/executed from a windows OS. Is there something similar for Ubuntu, or how can I get past this step when opening a service request? thanks, theresa

Thanks DELL-Jared D for taking the time to reply to my issues :) Everyone wants to hear good feedback, and after reading through the Coil-Whine thread(s) I thought you guys didn't receive positive feedback in a good while. While I agree that Coil-Whine and my above-mentioned issues are a pain, it doesn't make the XPS laptop less precious. I think I said this in a different thread already, but the XPS13 must be probably one of my best laptops I've ever had (my previous one was/is an ASUS Zenbook which is also very very good). But what often goes unnoticed is the fact that Dell is probably the only major company that releases linux desktops. Of course it's easy to install Linux on any other machine, but half the time crucial things like wifi connection, battery life-time, docking stations etc... don't work properly. And Dell tries to close that gap by working on the operating systems components (i.e drivers) to work with the hardware components. Thanks for doing this and please pass this on also to your team!! How would I open a service request for my touchpad issue? cheers, theresa

Hi, I’ve been a dell customer since October last year, and let me tell you I’m pretty happy with my XPS13 (ubuntu edition) and let me express my gratitude that a company like Dell is actively pursuing and pushing the linux desktop. This means a lot to the linux/ubuntu community and in my personal opinion you have „upped your karma“ ;) A company that offers a product line that (in theory) works great with a linux distribution is a wonderful idea. I intentionally said „in theory“ because there are a few things that are still to this day very very painful and would need to be looked at. One major advantage is that Linux is open-source and thus has a broad community that actively submits bug-reports and supplies patches for these. I’d even go as far as saying the average linux user is probably easier to work with in the sense of troubleshooting a problem. Two major bugs that would need to be looked at by Dell:  the number one problem is the touchpad. When using the touchpad the cursor permanently freezes, however if you plug in an usb mouse or connect via bluetooth then the frozen cursor becomes active again. A quick/temporary workaround would be a reboot. How is this still a problem? I’ve recently purchased the Dell USB-C hdmi/vga/ethernet/usb adapter DA200 thinking that if I buy an officially endorsed product from Dell then it ought to work together smoothly with my Dell XPS 13. Little did I know that this adapter does not work on Ubuntu 16.04 …. After a bit of googling I found numerous bugreports saying that this adapter does not work on Linux (however ethernet and usb seem to work, but the video ports hdmi and vga are defunct). Thankfully in the bug reports they also supply a patch, but however that has not been released for 16.04 yet…. From the customer side, I’d really appreciate it if Dell sells a product (something as crucial as a video adapter because the Dell XPS13 has no additional ports due to its thinness) that this product also works on Ubuntu Linux. I don’t know if this is too much to ask for, but it’s troublesome to run into these problems over and over again. I was at a conference and wanted to do a presentation. If a colleague didn’t lend me his Apple USB-C adapter then I’d have been screwed. This Apple USB-C adapter worked out of the box. The bug reports and the patches are available at: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93578 https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94567 https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92932                              this one has the patch!! Any chance of Dell integrating this into any of the 16.04 updates or does this need to go upstream?!
Hi, shipping usually takes 3-4 weeks for the laptop to arrive,....so I wouldn't worry about that. I believe your laptop will be with you shortly ;)

Thanks Jared, it's not that a big deal at the moment. I just wanted to report it so that it will be dealt with it after the Christmas holidays...no need to escalate it for the time being. The year (throughout) is hectic enough as it is, but it would be nice if it was working again in January.... Happy holidays! cheers, theresa

Hi all, I've just did a factory reset and upgraded to Ubuntu 16.10 which worked fine. Afterwards I installed the kubuntu-desktop because I like KDE Plasma better. After that I noticed that everything is unusable slow. I try to start the konsole terminal (take literally 30 seconds to start) I type in "sudo apt-get install" which takes 1 minute ..... I haven't noticed this behaviour on (K)ubuntu 16.04 ... Anyone else noticed this behaviour or know how to troubleshoot this? The reason I upgraded to 16.10 was that I needed a newer version of the NetworkManager which sadly wasn't available in 16.04 So I kinda don't want to go back to 16.04, but having this immense slowless really forces me to go back to 16.04 because working like this is not possible at all :( I'd really appreciate any help here... thanks, theresa

Alan, is there any package I should be looking for specifically that should be installed on my system? If so, which version? For the D3100 docking station I installed the latest driver from the Displaylink website (1.2.65 07 Oct 2016)  When I don't use the docking station at all then there is no "Ghosting effect" for my mouse cursor.... cheers, theresa
does anyone else have the ghosting-effect when moving the mouse cursor, or is this just me? it's really annoying! :'(
