I have a burning question here I've been using Ubuntu for about 6 months

I used to work with a Lenovo Latitude that has a HDMI and VGA port for extending monitors, and it did that well

I got a new laptop, a MSI Katana GF66 11UC loaded with Ubuntu 20.04, kernel 5.13

It only has one HDMI port and then a USB-C port, Type-C USB3.2 Gen1

Full Specs: https://www.msi.com/Laptop/Katana-GF66-11UX/Specification

I want to know, has anyone tried using the USB-C as a display port yet? I have a monitor that can do VGA/DisplayPort (which can be adapted to HDMI), and then another monitor that can do VGA/HDMI

Currently, I can only use one monitor at a time, since I only have 1 HDMI port. I tried using this, https://www.unitek-products.com/products/usb-c-to-dual-hdmi-4k-adapter, but none of the monitors worked when I plugged it into the USB-C port. If I run lsusb, I can see the adapter, but I can't seem to get any HDMI signal to and from. It might be that it is a Gen1 Type-C port. Also, if I plug in a HDMI to USB-C cable in the monitor to the laptop, I still can't get any display

My question is, has anoyone had success with using a Display Port to USB adapter to connect a monitor? And are there any other drivers I could possibly install? I have tried installing DisplayLink drivers, but it constantly fails at installing EVDI. I am also have nvidia-driver-510 installed for the RTX3050 in the laptop

What other options do I have in redards to connecting another, second, monitor?
