I could not find any documentation for this display. Can you post the
pinout you have?

The SED1330 and SED1520 are graphic drivers. If your display is
character-cell, not graphical, it's likely (but not guaranteed) that
you need some variety of the HD44780 driver.

If you have a textual display, have a look in the LCDproc docs on how
to wire up a display with two enable lines. From there, you have to
have the right entry in your LCDd.conf to tell LCDd that you have two
"panels" and if they are top-bottom or left-right for stitching them
together (your clients don't see this because LCDd presents a single,
intact virtual screen surface).
Post your pinout and that should help direct the help towards what
sort of cable/interface adapter you'd need to build.
