Discussion on: Game show feeling: How I created a hardware mute button for Linux

I've been using it a lot for myself lately. I've only found two downsides.

  1. I sometimes forget to add --user
  2. The user instance of systemd doesn't start until the user's first login. So, if I need something to start right away, even if the user hasn't logged in yet, I need to use the system-wide systemd instead. This has never been a real issue to me, though, since I log in to my user as soon as I boot up the computer.
