I have been unable to get tmux & rtorrent running with a systemd service file. My
[Unit] Description=rTorrent Documentation=https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent After=network.target local-fs.target [Service] Type=forking KillMode=none User=rtorrent ExecStart=/usr/bin/tmux -S /tmp/rtorrent.sock new-session -d -s rtorrent \'rtorrent -n -O import=/etc/rtorrent.rc\' ExecStop=/usr/bin/tmux -S /tmp/rtorrent.sock send-keys -t rtorrent C-q WorkingDirectory=/home/rtorrent [Install] WantedBy=default.target
RemainAfterExit=yes did not work, and I'm not convinced that is a solution anyway. I think running
tmux this way ought to be done with
Type=forking. Please correct me if I'm wrong!)
The output from
systemctl status rtorrent:
● rtorrent.service - rTorrent Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/rtorrent.service; disabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Mon 2015-04-27 10:48:37 AEST; 22s ago Docs: https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent Process: 4433 ExecStart=/usr/bin/tmux -S /tmp/rtorrent.sock new-session -d -s rtorrent 'rtorrent -n -O import=/etc/rtorrent/rtorrent.rc' (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE) Apr 27 10:48:37 vagrant tmux: usage: new-session [-AdDP] [-c start-directory] [-F format] [-n window-name] [-s session-name] [-t target-session] [-x width] [-y height] [command] Apr 27 10:48:37 vagrant systemd: rtorrent.service: control process exited, code=exited status=1 Apr 27 10:48:37 vagrant systemd: Failed to start rTorrent.

Switching to the
rtorrent user with
su allows me to try the
ExecStart command manually - which works fine. I'm at a loss to debug this further.
