Skype 4.0 for Linux has just been released! Thought it wouldn’t happen anymore 🙂

So.. how do you keep your multiple instances of Skype running on Linux?

As Skype 2.1 saved everything to $HOME/.Skype personally I prefer to keep my history so I copied $HOME/.Skype to $HOME/.Skype.profile1 and $HOME/.Skype.profile2

After that you can just start Skype using the following commands:

skype –dbpath=~/.Skype_profile1

skype –dbpath=~/.Skype_profile2

Login and have fun 🙂 It is as easy as that 🙂
