You can use the xrandr command to get the names of display devices in Linux.

  1. Open a terminal.
  2. Type the following command and press Enter: xrandr --listmonitors This command will list all connected monitors and their names.


Alternatively, you can also use the following command to get more detailed information about connected display devices:

1
xrandr --query


This command will display information about the available displays, their names, resolutions, refresh rates, and other properties.
