The exact location below /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ doesn't matter - e.g.
just create a directory "displaylink" directly below and put it there. You
may need to run "depmod -ae" afterwards.

No, these errors are due to "displaylink.so" not being in the right place,
usually /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/. Maybe "make install" put it into
"_Nothing_ brightens up my morning. Coffee simply provides a shade of
grey just above the pitch-black of the infinite depths of the _abyss_."
