[SOLVED] systemd-logind: override "KillUserProcesses" via drop-in?

Hi everyone,

Arch's systemd is build with '--without-kill-user-processes', so the KillUserProcesses property for systemd-logind is set to false by default.

I want to override this property with a drop-in .conf file (see https://www.freedesktop.org/software/sy … onf.d.html ):

So I created /etc/systemd/logind.conf.d/killuserprocesses.conf:

[Login]
KillUserProcesses=true

But it doesn't work. I don't see the property in the output of systemctl show systemd-logind whether it's overridden or not.
I don't even see it when I remove the whole drop-in folder.

Does anybody else had this problem?

Thanks for any hint!

Edit: marked as solved.

`systemctl show` shows the properties of the unit. For comparison: you won't be able to see configuration data from sshd_config with `systemctl show sshd.service`.

You can check the value of the property via dbus (not sure if there's an easier way):

$ busctl get-property org.freedesktop.login1 /org/freedesktop/login1 org.freedesktop.login1.Manager KillUserProcesses

Ups, now that makes sense.
It works, thanks for the explanation!
