Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter not working on Dell Latitude E7250

Asked by David Kaplan on 2015-12-04

I just tried to connect my Dell Latitude E7250 to an external display using a mini DisplayPort (mDP) to VGA adapter, but it didn't work. No display was detected by the OS. Does anyone know how to get this working as being able to connect to external monitors is quite essential for a laptop?

I am running Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS Trusty.

Thanks,
David
