First of all, I want  to ask if you are aware you have sent this to
[aur-general] and not [arch-general].  I think your question has little
to do with the AUR.

Also, there is a page in teh Arch Wiki that covers setting up user
sessions with systemd.[1]  Have you taken a look that this?  Setup is not
quite simply making services and then calling "systemd --user".

This is what happens if you don't set up the necessary things that are
described in the wiki.  But if you are using linux-ck, you should know
that even if you set things up, you will still get this because the bfs
patchset actually disables some cgroup setting in the kernel that are
necessary for user sessions to work.
