    Is there a way to connect multiple monitors/displays to a LXC container?

    I know that with an Ubuntu 20.04 LTS VM, I can use SPICE and have it show multiple monitors/displays with virt-manager and/or virt-viewer. Is there a way for me to do the same (or something very similar) with an Ubuntu 20.04 LTS LXC container? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
