The command below might not work if the right attributes aren't set on the file
sudo ./displaylink-driver-4.4.24.run

Whch will result in
sudo: ./displaylink-driver-4.4.24.run: command not found

You first have to execute the following command to allow the file to be executable
sudo chmod +x displaylink-driver-4.4.24.run

I'm trying to use it with 3 monitors connected via USB-C. However, it only works the 2 DP monitors. The HDMI doesn't work. If I disconnect one DP then the HDMI works.

Ah yeah, I think the hardware only supports 2 simultaneous outputs :( I never got all 3 to work at the same time.

I don't have this dock anymore so I can't test myself.
