Smile running kde as another ruser


HI folks, I run KDE on my Deb 4.0 single user desktop box. When I switch users (ctrl alt f2 etc) can I run another instance of kde? How do I do that please?

Thanks,
Greeb

In KDE, you sould be able to do Kmenu -> Switch User -> Start New Session. If you are in a terminal (CTRL-ALT-F1 etc), you can login to the CLI and then do "xinit -- :1".

Thanks - once you see it it's obvious, but I couldn't see the wood for the trees as they say...
