Default OpenBSD and USB 3 Dock (DisplayLink)

Hello all

Is anyone using a USB 3.0 dock for multiple displays ?

I am trying to use a Dell USB 3.0 Docking Station (D3100) with a Thinkpad T460s -- fresh OpenBSD install.
The dock is recognised in dmesg and the mouse / keyboard attached to the dock work -- but my monitors do not show in xrandr.

I see a reference to DisplayLink in wsudl and a few references in reddit etc. -- checking if anyone had success with multi-monitors using a USB 3 doc. and if I need to change any configuration files to make it work.

Okies -- I hear the silence

I ordered a traditional thinkpad dock and have the monitors working with the T460s.

I will revisit the USB dock when i graduate my T480 to to OpenBSD (which has a USB-C)
