I’m not very experienced with setting up Linux video, but I really want to get 2 screens running with digital (HDMI/DVI) connections. Using only one screen is so '90s…
Googling brings up a lot of complex information all over the place, which I am hoping is largely ‘the bad old days’ and a lot is simpler now…
I am a bit lost.
Can anyone recommend what is the simplest, Linux-friendly, not-hideously-expensive option to get 2 Digital video outputs under Linux?
And that plays nice with all Antergos desktop environments (If that is even a variable…)
I have a large case, a few PCI slots spare, and a PCIe 2.0 slot I think. (Can confirm details if necesssary)
I am thinking a single card (PCIe?) with 2 digital outputs is probably the way to go, though some cards cannot drive both outputs at the same timer I read.
Hardware that is easy to source is highly desirable. Used is fine, even preferable.
I’d probably prefer a fanless variety if that is possible. I may be asking too much at this point, I know…
Thanks for any help, as I am a bit lost in the forest on this!
