Thats the problem, i don't know if its intended. I would have thought that
all user processes should get shut down at logoff.

That depends on whether you have KillUserProcesses=yes in

Note: This also kills things like screen snd tmux, if you want them to
survive, you need to use something like „systemd-run —user screen“ with
lingering enabled (see manpage).


I've checked "logind.conf" (dated January 2017) and none of the keywords have
values after the "=". Because there is no value with the KillUserProcesses
keyword, it should default to "yes" and then it inspects KillOnlyUsers=,
KillExcludeUsers=. KillExcludeUsers should default to "root".

But there is a "logind.conf.rpmnew" (January 2018) with some new keywords and
many of the keywords have values e.g. KillUserProcesses=no and

I guess the question is, did i miss some instructions that said i should have
replaced the existing logind.conf with the logind.conf.rpmnew one as a newer
version of systemd was installed and then updated KillUserProcesses= to "yes".

I'll give it a try and see what happens once i've backed up
