Running two signal-desktop at the same time

If I try to run signal-desktop twice by clicking on the icon on Ubuntu 20.04, it just shows one. How can I make it so I have two signal-desktop associated with two different mobile phones ?

You can:

  • Open a terminal
  • mkdir ~/other-signal
  • HOME=~/other-signal signal-desktop --no-sandbox &

With some extra work it also is possible to add another icon for convenience.
