USB3 Monitors




Does anyone know whether Debian (or the kernel in general, I guess)
supports USB3 monitors? A quick web search finds no mention of it, if
so.

If this support does exist, does that knowledgeable person know whether
a boot console is supported, or the USB monitor can only be secondary,
with a more specialized adapter used for setup? I think I'm asking
whether the stock Debian kernel incorporates USB video support and
autodetection and can thus boot directly to a USB3 console or Xorg
screen. If not, could I compile a kernel to do that?

(I want to do this at least largely to get a
super-low-power-consumption system. USB3 monitors use as little as 5
watts when in active use and even less in standby.)

Thanks for any assistance.
