To confirm the details you are looking to add an HDMI output or HDMI input to your system?

Hi, Jeff,


At this moment I am looking for an HDMI output adapter so that I could connect another monitor to the computer. The system might need three or four monitors.


Thank you,

Devices that are using chipsets (some, not all) that come from Displaylink seem to have an Ubuntu 16.04 driver.


More info here. You might want to read the release notes from the latest version first to know which chipsets are supported. Knowing that could help you finding a nice adapter.


Hope this helps.

I find it baffling that there is actually a compatibility issue about this. As far as I am concerned, USB to HDMI adapters are pretty much plug and play, let's say you have any decent Bodhi laptop with a USB port and a huge LED television with a HDMI input, these days I find that it is feasible just sticking in the cable and that's it. I could be wrong, but that's what I recall since Ubuntu 14 or so. If it's an app that Moksha is short of, I am less than sure but where I am coming from is that Debian since version 7.0 or around the time when Ian Murdock died was already capable of doing this with most HDMI input televisions, perhaps.
