    kubuntu stops downloading when I switch user

    I have just install kubuntu 18.10 and I like to separate work stuff from others using different users. I have notice that when I'm downloading a torrent using ktorrent or downloading a file in firefox. If I switch to an other user the file or torrent stops downloading. But when I switch back it start up again. All previous version of kubuntu never did this. How do I get Kubuntu to keep downloading torrents or file after switching users?

    i'd like to know how also as i never thought was possible to begin with

    i guess i could see the file continuing from where it left off at, if the server actually let's you do that, but always thought switching users would stop any download.

    Re: kubuntu stops downloading when I switch user

    I have a 18.04 kubuntu laptop and tried downloading then switched user and it did stop downloading. I have just upgrade the motherboard, cpu and nvme drive to my main system and decided to put the latest kubuntu 18.10. What I did was to start fresh and did not keep my home setting like I normally do when I installed the latest OS. So my question is what can I do to make it continue downloading after I switch away from that user like what my old system did?
