Also i've added the


to the unit file to avoid duplicating lines in journalctl. Taken in directly from

Maybe the ExecReload and Restart* lines should be added as well, not tested them yet.

@anonfunc no, there are no any other lines besides Started Motionplus daemon.. Additionally I've tried the following:


The same error (with std::logic_error) happened.

You can use ReadWritePaths= with a dynamic user, archives the same. That std::logic_error error is weird, haven't gotten that yet. Do you have anything before that indicates why that happens?

@anonfunc here's what I've done to get it to work with my local USB camera:

1.Commented out the "DynamicUser" string in unit file. With that you'll have the following errors just from the start:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'
  what():  basic_string: construction from null is not valid

2.Created the dedicated user for it: sudo useradd -g nobody -G video -M -N -s /bin/false motion

and added it to the unit file:


3.Added my webcam dump folder to ReadWritePaths= (/var/cams in my case), as that would be strange to have video files in /etc;

4.Commented out PrivateDevices=true so it can even access /dev/video* for USB webcam.

Well, as it turned out that's all modifications I needed to do to get it working in my case.

@test0 Please be more specific. What problem do you have exactly? If you want to change stuff, you can always do systemctl edit motionplus.service.

I'm sorry, but your systemd file is waaaay too strict for this, it doesn't work that way at all.

@auser should be fixed with -4.
