When you use switch user you are logging in on :1, and by default resmgr is
only set to give permissions on :0

Have a look at /etc/resmgr.conf. Look for the line

allow desktop tty=/dev/tty[1-9]* || tty=tty[1-9]* || tty=:0

and add || tty=:1 at the end and restart resmgr

Or perhaps better still (untested) change the last part to


that *should* give you resmgr permissions on multiple graphical logins
