systemd access to /dev when logged in through ssh

I have user "X" logged in through SLIM and proper permissions to /dev devices are granted. When I log in as the same user "X" through SSH, I can't access /dev devices.

This prevents me from running emulators and sound applications through SSH, which is a PITA since the machine in question is a HTPC dedicated to running XBMC.

Any way to grant same permissions to SSH users as X sessions?

Re: systemd access to /dev when logged in through ssh

I've been doing some digging on this, apparently display managers make sure the logged in session gets a "seat" from systemd. As long as you have a logged in X session, SSH sessions will also inherit the permissions from that seat.
