View Full Version : [gnome] Can ubuntu host use other laptop as secondary monitor?

Hi, I come cross a Windows program called MaxiVista, where it can turn laptop/desktop monitor(s) into secondary monitor of other machine. It showed clear indication power of MS Windows graphics. Can the same be done with X11 window system? Or does the xorg x server have such feature?

Similar idea has been applied to turn iPad as external monitor (e.g. AirDisplay, MaxiVista for iPad), it would be great if we can do the same.

Has there been any progress on this question? Is there any way to plug into an ipad and use it as a second monitor?
