I'm using EPSON EB-S9 projector and it is connecting using USB cable to the Ubuntu system,but the problem is, Projector is not detecting by the system, following is some information regarding the my system.

lspci | grep VGA

output is:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

sudo lshw -C video

output is:

description: VGA compatible controller
product: Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 2
bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0
version: 02
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom
configuration: driver=i915 latency=0
resources: irq:42 memory:fe000000-fe3fffff memory:d0000000-dfffffff ioport:f160(size=8)

I'm thinking that, necessary drivers might be missing, how to install those ?

Open "monitors" using unity and press "detect monitor" to discover the newly added monitor to detect.

Connection is done using usb so use lsusb to cheek the connection.
