I have recently moved from Windows to Ubuntu 12.10.
I have an AOC portable laptop monitor (Model number e1649Fwu).
This monitor works solely through USB.
It works fine on Windows, but I cannot work out how to find/install drivers for Ubuntu.
I found this forum thread.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Update: It now displays the purple Ubuntu start-up screen but an error is displayed on the 2nd monitor when login is complete. I get Ubuntu as expected on my primary screen, and on the 2nd screen it gives a general protection fault. I followed the steps on this Ask Ubuntu question about installing a USB-link monitor, but the
displaylink.c file throws C errors when I run
./configure && make && make install. I tried to fix these by modifying the C code, but no luck. I also tried using the
xorg.conf file used in this tutorial, but this also doesn't work.
Am I right in thinking that it is just a matter of getting the
xorg.conf file correct now?
This is a picture of the error shown on the second screen:
