For a while now, I'm trying to make my Lenovo Duet as my portable second screen. I don't want to carry around monitors everywhere and my main devices for traveling are Macbook and Chromebook. That's why I thought it would be cool if I can use my Duet Chromebook as my second screen.
First, I tried several options:
- Duet Display (https://www.duetdisplay.com/) - They have lots of good reviews but unfortunately the connection is not stable and I notice lots of lag. They have pretty good support though and I managed to get a refund. Thanks!
- Synergy (https://github.com/symless/synergy-core) and Barrier (https://github.com/debauchee/barrier) also doesn't work. They crashed when I tried to move my mouse to the chromebook.
Finally I found Deskreen https://deskreen.com/
In order to use this app, I need to purchase some hardware (virtual plug) that enables me to extend the screen. However, the result is pretty satisfactory. The connection is stable and even though there are lags, it's still acceptable.
