How can you make a follower dual wield weapons?

i'm trying to get Uthgerd the Unbroken to dual wield.. I've tried different combinations but she either equips two-handed weapons or one-handed & shield. Can she not dual wield at all?

My current companion dual wields two different staves (staffs? Lol) but she won't do it with swords so far.

Yea I've noticed that Uthgerd can dual wield staffs, but no swords maces axes. Anyone else have an idea to solve this?

Did you try to take away the shield/2-handed sword?

I know Jenassa/Janessa (the dark elf in The Archery shop in Whiterun) dual-wields, so it's possible with at least some of them.

Yes I've tried everything I could think of but no luck so far. I wanted her to dual wield since here http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Uthgerd_the_Unbroken it says that its better to give her dual wield or one-handed & shield, and I wanted the former..

Well with Jenassa I would give her, say a Sword and a Dagger (never tried 2 longswords now that I think about it, dunno if it matters) and she would usually just equip one, until a battle started, when she would pull out the second.

So, if you haven't, give her both and then get into a battle to see if she pulls out both weapons?
