I have recently gotten my iMo USB monitor working, now I am looking for creative ideas for its use.

It is identified as DIsplayLink USB Device on /dev/fb0. It's resolution is 800x400 using the dfb driver. The rest of the system is pretty clean;


Recently upgraded to 11.04
Using the ATI fglrx driver for the main display.

Its not possible to simply use it as a secondary monitor, as it is not detected as one. This is a separate device. So no posing about how you would use it as a secondary monitor.

How would you use a 800x400 Frame buffered display?
