How-to start two skype instances on linux



Basically, for starting the second skype process, You need to have a separate skype data path.

So it can be started like that:

skype --dbpath=~/.Skype2

If You need all the history or settings of an existing skype, You may just copy that dir:

cp -pr ~/.Skype ~/.Skype2

p.s. You may start even more instances in the same way.
