We could do one of two things:

1. Something a bit more elaborate in send_state_update, where we like 
here ignore "safe" transitions. This might be similar to the proposed 
threshold, but let's see what's possible.

Having `upower --monitor-detail` output during the charge/discharge

The loglevel changes the log output of the seatd service itself, which 
is what might help here. The log output of libseat/X is unchanged.

I cannot guess what errors you see. If you need help with your init 
scripts, ask in an appropriate community forum for your distribution.

Your libseat log contains:

1. A failed connection to the running seatd instance ("Could not poll 
connection: Broken pipe")
2. A failed attempt to use elogind as fallback ("Could not get primary 
session for user")
3. A final failed attempt to use a built-in seatd instance as fallback

Your connection to seatd failed. You should debug the seatd daemon, 
which should print some information to stderr. Also consider changing

Just to clarify, multi-seat would basically be several office desks 
(screens, keyboards, mice) powered by a single machine, each user having 
their own display, gpu(!), keyboard and mouse used to run their own X or 
Wayland session in parallel with and entirely separate from everyone else.

Multi-session would be 1 office desk with multiple users, where all 
users can be logged in simultaneously but only one session is active and 
shown (the user who is currently at the desk) with the rest being in the

Re: [PATCH] seatd: Add systemd notify support a month ago

From Kenny Levinsen to ~kennylevinsen/seatd-devel

Two updates: First, I have made this "proper" sd_notify adapter: 

It uses libsystemd for notification and maintains that the direct child 
of systemd is the started service with the monitoring process being 
forked off before exec. As such it has the right systemd main pid 
without giving off a systemd alien child warnings, looks clean in the 
process tree, and supports all the sd_notify socket types.

Second, I am reconsidering whether we should allow this in a minimal 
(only readiness), and strictly optional form. While systemd will not be 
seen in a positive light around here - projects like seatd and elogind 
would not really need to exist if systemd accepted cooperation with 
other communities - I do not want our policy to be hostility to systemd

That was an excessive number of quotation marks. :)

> So, question is on your plans with "MultiSeat": do you plan to accomplish "MultiSeat"

What is your multi-seat use-case? The plan is to support multi-seat in 
seatd, but due to how rare multi-seat uses are it has not had the 
highest priority. Knowing about needs in the area would be useful though.

As a general rule of thumb, unpaid work has no estimates and no 
committed schedules/plans. It happens when it happens.

Socket activation indirectly solves readiness by removing the need for 
waiting on seatd altogether. It has been requested before, and as it 
might both bring more functionality and require less non-portable code 
to implement, it could be worth considering.

How would it result in better integration? The service is either ready 
or it is not.
