As per my previous question, I am having great difficulty with a headless setup, so have decided to add a display.
I possibly could use my HDMI input TV, but I don't think that my partner would be too pleased.
I have access to:
my laptop, but they generally don't have video in
a desktop, but its monitor only has VGA-in and DVD-in
an XTP2046 display, but my previous question explains that I can't find a distro to support it
the display dead 3 year old laptop
an Amazon fire tablet & an Android tablet, plus an Amazon smart 'phone
I suspect that my best options are to use the TV temporarily, if I can get access to it, and longer term to buy a very cheap HDMI monitor, but does anyone have any other ideas?
My only caveat is that I must be a able to use a standard distro, without editting any files.
Perhaps I could aso buy a cheap Pi display, so long as it requires no messing with the SD card?
Latest: and HDMI to VGA adapter for less than $5 looks promising for use wiht the desktop's monitor
