Description Göran Uddeborg 2021-05-08 16:44:43 UTC
Description of problem:
The comment in the beginning of /etc/systemd/logind.conf says

    # should be created by either modifying this file, or by creating "drop-ins" in
    # the system.conf.d/ subdirectory. The latter is generally recommended.

However, the correct subdirectory seems (according to the manual and my own experimentation) to be logind.conf.d.

Comment 1 Göran Uddeborg 2021-05-08 18:44:22 UTC
Looking closer, it seems the analogous problems applies to most if not all /etc/systemd/*.conf files. All of them refer to system.conf.d rather than their respective *.conf.d directories. (The comment is correct in system.conf.)

We're one step ahead already ;)
