Run Skype at the same time with two accounts in Linux MintRun Skype at the same time with two accounts in Linux Mint

If the user has multiple accounts, Skype or the computer is used by different users for their switch it is necessary to change the account to go to another.
Below I will show you how to start a second account independently from the first.

Open a terminal and type the following:

skype --dbpath=~/.Skype2 & exit

Or you can create a launch button. See the screenshots below.

Worked beautifully with Mint 17, but now I installed Miont 18.2 this does not work. Presumably some adjustment to the path (and for the newer Skype?)
