is the first time I write here.

I bought an external usb monitor http://www.asus.com/it/Monitors_Projectors/MB168B/;

I have an Asus s56cb with dual boot, linux Mint 17 qiana and windows 7. On windows 7 the monitor work without problem, but on linux it doesn't work...when I insert the Usb, but nothing happen.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!! ;)

This looks like another product with DisplayLink chips. DisplayLink has no interest in supporting Linux, therefore if you need a portable monitor that works with Linux buy a model that also has HDMI or DisplayPort connectivity.

By the way, Linux Mint is off-topic here.

Edit: Drivers for newer DisplayLink products have been released in mid 2015.

  • I apologize for the off-topic ... linux mint has the same architecture of ubuntu, so I was hoping to find a solution more easily on this site. Regarding the question, I have a colleague who has my same version of linux and uses a non-portable usb monitor the AOC (without hdmi like mine), so I thought that even the one I bought would work without problems. – wratted Sep 28 '14 at 10:24
  • I bought the MB168B+ and it work on linux but only on 1366*768. You have to use custom drivers available in DisplayLink forums – Dimitri Kopriwa Jan 14 '16 at 16:35
