Hi all,

I routinely run two instances of Skype. One on my logged in account, and the other through an alternative account.

su alternativeUsername
Everything works fine with the second instance. I can chat, call, and cam without issue. But when it comes to drag-and-drop file transfers, or copying and pasting into the chat window, it doesn't work at all.

This is the case for just about any program opened as a second instance under the alternative account.

Does anybody have any suggestions that would help activate these abilities?


QUOTE Thanks
