Is it possible to run an application on my local desktop but display the GUI on my laptop (remote X)?
I'm wondering if it is possible to emulate a dual-monitor setup using 2 distinct lan connected machines.
I have installed synergy and I can easily control my laptop with the desktop keyboard/mouse, but I would also like to just run something on the desktop and display the GUI on the laptop screen.
From my limited experience with X, I know that I can run a program on a remote machine and use the display of the first to show the output, but not the other way around.
Any pointers would be of great help. Thank you
P.S. Running XFCE 4.10 on Ubuntu 12.10
