Fedora 34 and the UD-6950H

I just recieved a Lenovo Flex 5 and have put my favorite distro Fedora on it.
After some research I found that the best dock for it would be the UD-6950H since it doesnt have alt-dvi mode in its usb-c port.

I have plugged in all necessary cables to the UD-6950H and the data lines seem to be connecting properly (Keyboard, mouse, and ethernet) but the displays are not listed in my display settings at all.
Sound also seems to be an issue. The device is connected and registering within gnome settings but no sound comes out via the headphone port.

This is my output from lsusb:

Hi there,

Thank you for contacting Plugable support. We are sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue.

Unfortunately at this time, we do not support Fedora with our DisplayLink products. We try to do our best to call this out in our product listings as seen here: https://plugable.com/products/ud-6950h

DisplayLink has stated that they do offer limited support for Ubuntu. As seen here: https://www.synaptics.com/products/displaylink-graphics/downloads/ubuntu and here: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/684649

There is also some additional, related information regarding DisplayLink and Fedora here: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/t/displaylink-driver-fedora-33/10482/3

We do apologize for any confusion. If you have any additional questions or concerns please let us know and we would be happy to further assist.

I have seen the displaylink driver on ubuntu.
I am really interested in this but it seems that the RPM package doesnt seem to install everything needed.

Hello,

Unfortunately as stated earlier we do not support Fedora at this time. Again we do apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.

Best regards,

Michael S.
