Re: [SOLVED] systemd-logind.service failed

I'm not sure but by 'starting manually' maybe it was meant to use the command '/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-logind' directly (?).

Also after you execute the systemctl command above it suggests to use "journalctl -xe", have you tried this/ what's its output (do it right after you enter the above command) ?

And also, do you have other failed units ('systemctl --failed') ?
And if I understand correctly it seems to be a problem with dbus. What's the output of 'systemctl status dbus.socket' and 'systemctl status dbus.service' * ?

* Edit: "status" was missing here

Yes, that's what I meant. If needed, raise loglevel by prefixing the command with SYSTEMD_LOG_LEVEL=debug.

There's no evidence that this is a dbus issue because the OP hasn't been able to provide the reason that logind is failing.

root:~/ # /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-logind SYSTEMD_LOG_LEVEL=debug                                                                         [12:58:39]
This program takes no arguments.

How would I do this?

Thanks for clarifying, falconindy.

Also going back to the opening post, you (rujutsu) said "all of a sudden".
This is somewhat unlikely. Did it maybe start after an update or package install ? Re-check your pacman.log, evtl. provide the part of the last update here + is your system up to date ?

pacman.log
Yes my system is up to date

Prefix it, not suffix, like I said to.

$ SYSTEMD_LOG_LEVEL=debug /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-logind

You have larger problems than logind not starting up, though. Your /run/dbus/system_bus_socket doesn't exist, which is what causes logind to fail to start. As a wild guess, is your /var/run not a symlink to /run?

Also, as a sidenote, I tried installing LXDM in hopes that it would automatically remedy the problem. It didn't.

How would I check that symlink?

Re: [SOLVED] systemd-logind.service failed

I'm not sure about your find output...

Could you please show the output of

$ ls -l /var/run
(and maybe also)
$ ls -l /run/dbus
$ ls -l /var
$ ls -l /
$ mount

Re: [SOLVED] systemd-logind.service failed

The fact that "find /var/run -type l" doesn't return anything is indicative of exactly the problem I asked about -- /var/run not being a symlink to /run. Reinstalling the filesystem package should fix that.

Ok, then move /var/run/ to /var/run_OLD/ or so, and try again.

Re: [SOLVED] systemd-logind.service failed

Ok. So I uninstalled lxdm and deleted the /var/run directory.
Then I was able to reinstall the filesystem package.
I rebooted and there were no more logind error messages.
To verify, I ran systemctl status and indeed all is fixed.

Thanks for all the help guys!
I will be marking this thread as [Solved]
