I'd like to have 3 or even 4 monitors hooked up to my machine, so that I can have different applications open at the same time but not have everything cluttered all in one screen.
I know Ubuntu allows you to have 4 different "desktops" at any one point in time, but you still have to scroll from one to the other when you want to change to a different desktop. I want the ability to see all 4 at once.
How could such a configuration be made? Assume I'm using an ordinary HP laptop with one external monitor port. I assume I would need to hook into some kind of dock or special device that allows my video card to send data to 4 different monitors.
What kind of device would this be??
And, even if such a device exists, does Ubuntu even come with the OS features to support this kind of "n-monitor" setup? Thanks in advance!
