Correcting the service file works. Thansk a lot, and sorry for the delay.

@stefan.skupin: Try editing the /usr/lib/systemd/user/aarchup.service


Reload daemon with systemctl daemon-reload and start the service systemctl --user start aarchup.service. Let me know of results and I will amend the service file.

with version 1.8.2-1 systemd service is broken. it seems that aarchup.service and aarchup.timer have been moved to usr/lib/systemd/user/, so i activated the timer as a systemd user service. however, the service file fails:

[skupin@archbox ~]$ systemctl --user status aarchup ● aarchup.service - Run aarchup Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/user/aarchup.service; static; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead) since Thu 2018-07-05 13:31:02 CEST; 16min ago Process: 7318 ExecStart=/usr/share/aarchup/ (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 7318 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

aarchup launched from command line works.

@ValHue Did some changes and released a new version. I also modified the aur package. I added you as contributor to my repo.

ValHue commented on 2018-07-04 11:20

@artafinde In that case we will use your repo. :D

artafinde commented on 2018-07-04 11:01

I will probably have some time today to do some fixes (maybe the auracle & provide sensible systemd files) - I've already forked it in my GitHub account - I will be raising PRs against yours @ValHue.

ValHue commented on 2018-07-04 10:50

@artafinde It seems perfect. Or simply change the code so that it is not necessary to apply a patch. As simple as that...

artafinde commented on 2018-07-04 10:46

ValHue you can add me as Co-Maintainer if you want and I can try updating as well. What kind of improvements we are talking about? It's a very simple tool which does the job currently. My improvement would be to re-write it with unit tests and in different language (probably c++) :P

ValHue commented on 2018-07-04 10:38


But I think it would still be better to create a fork and leave your repository intact with your work.

I also do not have time to devote to him. I hope that some of the participants of these comments want to maintain and develop it.

@ValHue can you tell me your GitHub username?
