Once upon a time, I installed DisplayLink but have since uninstalled it. I have another program on my computer that keeps crashing and upon looking at the logs, it seems to be an issue with the DisplayLinkManager.

So there appear to be some remnants left, but when I search for DisplayLink in Spotlight, I get no results (just links to Wikipedia, etc). So how can I completely remove com.displaylink.displaylinkmanager?

In a Terminal, run locate displaylinkmanager and you should get a list with all files containing "displaylinkmanager".

Then run rm file, replace file with each file from the previous command. This will delete the files, and hopefully fix the confusion that causes your program to crash.

Just download app again from this link, open the installer file, then select uninstall from there :) http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/osx

The displaylink-debian.sh (in my case) lives in /usr/bin

sudo displaylink-debian.sh uninstall and follow the instructions. All those having issues with "Missing component: Linux headers for running kernel, 4.9.0-6-amd64." should use this as well, you will receive the same error but it appears to continue with the uninstall to completion.
