VGA over USB?

Is VGA over USB supported in openSUSE? If so, what do I need? I bought a cheap USB to VGA adaptor and the system doesn’t recognise the VGA device.

However, I’m running Leap 42.2 so I wouldn’t be surprised if I need a fresher release.


What brand/model/chipset?


When you connect it, what is reported by dmesg?


FWIW, a very old (but interesting thread) on the subject…
