Using an old laptop running Ubuntu as monitor

by Zersetzor   Last Updated September 11, 2019 14:02 PM

I would like to use an old laptop as a monitor for a PC. The PC is currently running Windows 10, but I'm looking to install Ubuntu 18 on it alongside it. I'm also looking to install Ubuntu 18 on the laptop.

Is there any way that this could be made to work with either OS, or even both?
