    Default Suse using multiple displaylink adapters.

    Hello,

    Has anyone ever tried to use multiple Display link adapters?
    I want to setup 4 monitors. Not sure if it's possible But I am interested in trying to get it done.

    Should not be a huge problem. I'd recommend the same brand video cards but it can be done with mixed if you have a bit of patients

    Display link adapters??

    Are you talking about things like this?

    These devices apparently use USB to drive monitors. You would need Linux drivers which I doubt exist

    You can drive 4 monitors with 2 graphics cards no problem Stuff like the above I see serious problems unless the makers supply some drivers
