If you don't need the DisplayLink driver, you can remove it as follows.
Right click on Applications in the dock and click Open "Applications"
Find a file named DisplayLink. If you don't see it, type DisplayLink in the search box.
Right-click the DisplayLink file and select Move to Trash.

If you do need it, you can repair a permissions problem by following this procedure:

suggests:

DisplayLInk is a third-party technology to allow for external monitors to be connected over USB. At some point you (or someone else) installed their drivers, and they seem to be going bad. If you are not using it, I would remove those drivers. Or possibly there are newer drivers that you could install to just remove the errors without removing the functionality.
