Hi all,

I'm planning on using my Max2 Pro as a second monitor for text editing, and I have a couple questions about whether it will work with my current laptop.

1) Does it work with linux?
2) Will it work with a laptop that doesn't have an HDMI port? (i.e. with a usb/hdmi adapter)

I'm running Debian on a Lenovo Yoga 720 15". It has no HDMI, but it does have a USB type C thunderbolt port. Will the Max2 Pro work with this laptop? I wanted to ask here before buying the adapter, as I wouldn't have any other use for it.

You have charging + OTG!
Does the root program potentially have some kind of malware, though? But it's good to know that it is possible to do this. Thanks for sharing.

No its topjohnwu's Magisk su. Its whats used on probably 80% of all Android phones that are rooted in the world. Its free and open source and you can build the root yourself. Here's the thread at xda https://forum.xda-developers.com/app...mless-t3473445

Way to get fake display for Windows use HDMI dummy plug or:
1. Install spacedesk (server and viewer part both)
2. In viewer part Settings->Automatic Conect add yours local server s IP (Network interfaces (local) in server part). Add resolution for your device.
3. Run server, restart viewer and you got virtual display (you can see it in Windows settings).
Tested it for Win 7 x64.
Sorry for tongue-tied, I'm not well at English.
