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?

USB-VGA at your link costs $30. Add a bit more and buy x86 with two onboard video outputs. Onboard video at x86 will be many times faster than USB video at raspberry.

Which x86 model? Any should work. It's better to prefer models that are available on market for at least half a year.
