Because the driver is not loaded. Plugin the DisplayLink device and run
# modprobe udlfb

The device should go green.

In another console do
# tail -f /var/log/messages

to see if there are any errors while the driver is loading.

This means the driver is installed on your system and also this is the driver 
that comes with Ubuntu.
