I have been using the DisplayLink driver to drive a Dell D3100 USB 3.0 docking station for months with very few issues, but after a reboot today I attempted to start the DisplayLink driver (as I usually do, and have never encountered any problems) with
sudo systemctl start displaylink.service and received the following output:
Job for displaylink.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status displaylink.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
sudo systemctl status displaylink.service returns:
● displaylink.service - DisplayLink Manager Service Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/displaylink.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: activating (auto-restart) (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2016-04-16 12:42:38 EDT; 1s ago Process: 11003 ExecStartPre=/sbin/modprobe evdi (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Apr 16 12:42:38 samsung-series5-antergos systemd: displaylink.service: Unit entered failed state.

Thanks in advance for any insight you may have!
