Make Resilio Sync run as normal user on CentOS 7 (and other RHEL derived distros)

Recommended Posts


I am a very satisfied Resilio Sync user. Among other things, I use it to keep my development workspace synchronized between my Laptop with Ubuntu 18.04 and a PC at our laboratory with CentOS 7.

On Ubuntu, I am able to start the resilio-sync service as the default user (I mean my regular user with PID 1000). I did that by following the Resilio Sync guide and starting the service with


systemctl --user enable resilio-sync

But on CentOS and other RHEL derived distros, systemd lacks that capability

Is there any other way to make Resilio Sync run as default user in CentOS 7?

It is such a pain having to change the permissions of all the files every time.
