since I don't have enough space for a Monitor, I want to use my laptop as a screen for my Desktop PC which is running linux fedora. My laptop is running on windows 7 and I don't want to change that or disassemble the screen.

perhaps that is possible via a local Network?

If I was using win 7 on Desktop PC, I know I could use Air Display, but what about on a linux?

I noticed you got a downvote. You might try changing the title of your question to get better answers. I'd suggest clarifying if you're trying to do a headless install or use software like Remote Desktop Client in the title. – Tom Resing Oct 17 '13 at 19:12

If you don't have a monitor for the Desktop PC at all, you want to do a headless install. Once installed you can use RDP or SSH to show the OS from the desktop on your laptop.


Headless install
