Hello, im probably breaking quite a lot of mail list rules be this mail.
Especially because its quite old...
But this is problem driving me crazy for quite a while. But first I must say,
that I love systemd.
I use systemd --user and it's awesome. I start my xorg, my syncmail, mpd, etc.

This just wont work for me:
sudo systemd-loginctl enable-linger maralorn

I already tried modifiying this service in some ways but without success.
I can start it like user <at> maralorn.service, but when I try
Failed to issue method call: Process /bin/false exited with status 1
I figure this is a problem with dbus and sessions but I'm not sure.
As a workaround I start the
systemd --user from an already established tty session.
