Hardware: Dell XPS 15 9550 (4K touchscreen) with DisplayLink box

Software: Fedora 23, displaylink driver 1.0.335, video driver xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.99.917-16.20150729

I have searched for similar issues around the web but only found an old Firefox-related Ubuntu issue on Launchpad, so here's my question.

I have two external monitors connected to a diplaylink box which is connected to my laptop. Whenever I want to use a (context) menu of an app that is running on one of the external monitors, it shows up either on the built-in laptop display (Gtk and Qt apps) or not at all (Firefox). Only Chromium menus seem to show up in the right place. I have tried turning off the built-in display in the Gnome settings but that didn't solve the problem.

Does anyone have an idea of how to configure my box in such a way that menus will show up in the right position?

Problem is fixed by a recent software update: xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.18.3-1.fc23.x86_64


the issue is probably with the displaylink drivers and/or compatibility with your Xorg, I have the same issue on-and-off with different versions of the driver and Xorg.

Currently I run Xorg 1.18.1 and displaylink drivers 1.0.335 and I don't have the issue. (but IIRC 1.18.0 had issues, and the last 1.16 I had didn't)

ps: note that I'm not running fedora, so I don't know which versions of Xorg are available for it.
