There is no Linux kernel support for VGA Shield. We should write our own driver to draw. And it's old analog VGA with 18-bit (6 bit for channel) color... I dislike it.

Perhaps we might think again about the idea of using slave RPi instead :)

Hi guys,

ok if a driver is a problem for VGA Shield, can you try to include synergy code in your wtware img -> https://github.com/symless/synergy/ for sharing mouse and keyboard.
So we should use 2 separate RPi connected on HDMI monitors and share keyboard and mouse.

I think this should be awesome!! :D

Thank you so much.

Why do not buy x86 hardware for dual monitor configurations?
