Skype in Docker
If you ever wonder how to have multiple instances of Skype running.
This docker image might be a solution.
The need to run multiple instances come from the fact that you might have an account for work and a personal one.
docker pull diet/docker-skype docker run diet/docker-skype cat /app/host/skype.run > ~/bin/skype.run && chmod +x ~/bin/skype.run
skype.run ~/.local/.skype/work &
You might want to create wrapper scripts in
~/bin something like
skype.personal. Which would call
skype.run with appropriate directory.
This work is based and inspired by
