Since a while ago I wanted to use my laptop with 2 more screens (3 screens in total). I recently bought an USB to VGA adapter in order to set up the third one but apparently it only works on Windows.

Anyone knows how can I do this?


These links might help you out.

Some info on open source drivers (Libdlo) https://libdlo.freedesktop.org/wiki/

Good luck!

  • Hi E.F have you ever used a universal dock station? i wonder if you know one which works fine with Ubuntu. Just tried with iTec and it was impossible. – Zenit Mar 21 '17 at 16:18
  • I don't have any experience with universal dock stations. But my tip would be to search for products that have Ubuntu support. I think you can find some if you would do a search. Also, search for the experience people have had with that product using Ubuntu to be sure it is working well. Good luck! – E.F. Nijboer Mar 21 '17 at 17:53
