i don't get sound, when starting via remote with no user logged in to the machine.
i do get sound, while i'm logged in as the user i set the service to run. but: i can't change volume via remote, it says "mixer is not open".
when i just start cmus detached to a screen logged in as the user manually, i can log out again, and do have sound and mixer via remote.
when i set the service to run as root (which i don't want, for several reasons) it does have sound and mixer.
Environment=XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/1000 as suggested here doesn't help (1000 is the right one).
so the question is: what is missing here to get
alsa fully working in my systemd-service as a user?
my current unit looks like this:
[Unit] Description=cmusd (consolemusicplayer in screen with remote-web-server) After=syslog.target network.target sound.target [Service] Type=forking User=myusername WorkingDirectory=/home/myusername/cmus_daemon ExecStart=/home/myusername/cmus_daemon/cmusd.init start ExecStop=/home/myusername/cmus_daemon/cmusd.init stop Environment="HOME=/home/myusername" "USERNAME=myusername" [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
cmusd.init start does basically
screen -dmS cmusplayer cmus --listen $CMUS_IP
my system is a ubuntu server 19.10 on a small board with optical audio.
