@mmkodali According to aria2 manual(, the default config path is ${HOME}/.aria2/aria2.conf or ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/aria2/aria2.conf. So it should work without modifying unit file.

Thanks for the advice.

commenting the line, User=%i and adding --conf-path=/home/xxxx/.aria2/aria2.conf to aria2c allowed me to run the service.

@mmkodali Don't enable service with systemctl enable aria2@.service, this service file is a template unit. You should use systemctl enable aria2@user.service instead. See note part of for more details. In this unit file, specifier user means username who runs aria2. You should also copy /usr/share/aria2 to /home/user/.aria2 and modify /home/user/.aria2/aria2.conf, or the service will not start normally because you don't have needed config.
