Suggested portable monitor

Post by Chaoshay »

Hi there!
A quick question:
I'm looking for a suggested portable monitor.
I have an old Asus MB128B that is a USB connection and when I plug it it starts but not recognized by my LMDE5...
On my Win11 (dual boot, diffrent SSDs) it works perfectly, while looking for a selution I read that USB screens most liky would not work, although i found some solutions for Mint 18.x that worked on Mint 18 (diffrent laptop) but not on this laptop.
So, I'm looking for a good, affordable mobile screen with an HDMI connection.
Thnks in advance!

I don't think so..
I tried the display link from the site which recognized my LMDE and was fully installed..
Will try this on Monday and share thr results!

Hi,
I tried but wasn't successful, even with the advance help and editing the conf file.
Thanks a lot for the tip but it seems to go no where with my laptop.
I would still like a suggetion if you have any.

Best regards,
Shay
