I mentioned last week that DisplayLink has announced that it had sold more than a million USB GPUs. The company has now announced that it is offering its library of software to enable the creation of Linux drivers for USB GPUs.

The company is providing the library under the GNU Lesser General Public License v2 agreement. The software will allow the creation of drivers to make DisplayLink GPUs work on Linux notebooks, desktops, and servers.

“We are enabling those in the Linux community to take DisplayLink USB graphics technology and apply it to new and exciting range of applications,” said Jason Slaughter, director of marketing at DisplayLink. “DisplayLink technology can be found in many USB connected monitors, universal docking stations, and projectors, and there are thousands of Linux-based devices that could benefit greatly from the plug and display simplicity of USB graphics.”
