How do i use my old laptop(which has manjaro installed) as another display?

so… i have 2 laptops… a new (currently using) and an old one which is about 10 years old right now

how do i get like dual monitors with the two laptops???
any ideas?


Typically laptops don’t have HDMI or VGA inputs so it’s likely impossible. As for other connectors (DVI etc) I am not sure but I presume it’s a similar situation. I tried doing this exact thing a few years ago and discovered that neither of my laptop’s HDMI or VGA ports would do the job.

mhm thanks for the info…

Hi. Though you can’t connect other laptop directly, I guess you can try to configure X to use its monitor over network. I didn’t use that myself, but you can read about several options here:
