View Full Version : [ubuntu] Xserver multiple computers

January 9th, 2010, 10:09 PM
Hey, first off I'm not entirely sure where to post this so please let me know if somewhere else would be more appropriate.

My idea is this: I have an aspire one netbook, great little machine, and I wanna introduce a second screen BUT i want to do it wirelessly.

So, my question is, is it possible to set up an xserver that connects to another screen on another computer? basically i want it to function the same as when i connect a monitor to my netbook & run it as a second screen, but i want the monitor to be physically connected to another computer (preferably running windows on the second machine but i think that might not be possible, unless i use virtual machines but i have limited RAM).

From what I know of xserver this seems possible, but I have no idea how to go about it.
