Running Multiple Instances of Skype on OSX
Now I've found a lot of ways to run skype but that includes running under sudo or creating a new user which both causes a Keychain Error which is honestly, quite annoying.
To make this work:
- Open Automator
- Select Application
- Select Run Shell Script
- Paste the following code:
#!/bin/zsh USER="$(whoami)"; SKYPE_DATA=/Users/$USER/Library/Application\ Support/Skype/skypebot; SKYPE_PATH=/Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype ## Open instance skype $SKYPE_PATH &; ## Create a bot application mkdir -p $SKYPE_DATA; ## Open skype's second instance $SKYPE_PATH -DataPath $SKYPE_DATA &;
Just change the
SKYPE_PATH to your application path and it'll all work out.
