I just bought this USB graphics adapter and I need to use it on Ubuntu 10.10. I followed this guide, but when I ran

$ ./configure && sudo make install && make check

nothing happened. On Windows, after the installation the monitor was detected automatically.

How do I get it to work on Ubuntu?

Install the xserver-xorg-video-displaylink to add drivers for this display.

You will need to configure the monitor by creating an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Instructions can be found in /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-displaylink/examples/

In Ubuntu 12.04, xorg.conf examples are here instead: /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-displaylink/README –  Mark Stosberg Jun 5 '12 at 21:41
