Confirming a monitor works with Linux

Last response: in Computer Peripherals

When buying a monitor, should one first confirm it'll work with a particular Linux distro [Ubuntu in my case], or is it OK to assume it will?

I'm interested in the HP 2009m monitor but find no reference to Linux support, on the HP site or elsewhere.

Not sure if I'm overthinking this--but I wonder, what if the correct drivers aren't available or something like that.

What do you experienced users do?

Was thinking about this HP monitor:

The problem won't be with the monitor. Check that your video card has a Linux driver available.
