Running multiple Skype instance in same computer

I found a solution. Skype is saving the data in ~/.Skype directory. ~ means your home directory. You can run a further skype4.0 session using a further data directory.

e.g. from a bash terminal:


> cd

> mkdir .Skype2

call of second skype session:

> skype --dbpath=~/.Skype2 &

After that works, you can add an icon or menu entry in your Window manager to simplify the start.
