What software do I need if I want to use an old laptop running Linux as a second monitor for a Windows 10 PC? Both screens shoud be in one workspace.

1 Answer 1


After a bit of research I found a program called Spacedesk. The primary machine has to be Windows, but the secondary can be a phone, tablet, or PC running Windows / Linux.

  • Would be great to point out, that SpaceDesk Client can run though Wine on the Linux machine. Oct 11, 2021 at 16:32
  • Spacedesk no longer supports Linux. not even with Windows 7 WMI and launching via Wine doesn't work.

    I just set it up with Windows on the main machine and Linux on the laptop. You just run the spacedesk client through the browser. Works great!! :-) May 19, 2022 at 7:35
