I have a service that should run under user systemd instance. It needs
access to directory outside of it's usual paths and does not follow
symlinks, so I figured that `mount --bind` might be a way to go.
However, I can't make BindPaths= directive work in user service file.
It seems that directive is simply ignored. I can reproduce the issue
$ systemd-run -qt -p BindReadOnlyPaths=/run/user/1000/:/tmp/bindmount/ /bin/ls -a /tmp/bindmount/
. bus dconf gvfs klauncherJ21213.1.slave-socket ksocket-user pulse systemd
.. dbus-1 gnupg kdeinit5__0 KSMserver__0 kwallet5.socket rsnapshot
$ systemd-run -qt --user -p BindReadOnlyPaths=/run/user/1000/:/tmp/bindmount/ /bin/ls -a /tmp/bindmount/
Is this by design? I don't see any mention of this limitation in man
entries for systemd.mount and for systemd.exec.
If using BindPaths in user service file is not an option, can I somehow
make system service run automatically when this user service is
Thanks in advance,
