Hi, Samuel,

Try running the command:

$ loginctl enable-linger

Then launch your process as follows:

$ systemd-run --scope --user *command args*

For example:

$ systemd-run --scope --user nohup watch uptime &

Please let me know if this method works for you or not.

Thank you,

It seems screen and tmux give the illusion of working while your logged
in, but sessions are discarded when they are detached and the hosting
login process disconnects. Which means I cannot reconnect sessions at
a later date.
