Installing rtorrent on Ubuntu

Hey again.

A few days ago I tried following this guide to install rtorrent on Ubuntu 20.04:

https://blog.thirdechelon.org/2019/07/f … -04-16-04/

However, when I get to the part that says to start it with:  sudo systemctl start rtorrent
I get the following error:

● rtorrent.service - rTorrent
     Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/rtorrent.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2021-02-26 11:14:13 UTC; 9s ago
    Process: 57603 ExecStart=/usr/bin/screen -d -m -fa -S rtorrent /usr/bin/rtorrent (code=exited, status=200/CHDIR)

systemd[1]: Starting rTorrent...
systemd[57603]: rtorrent.service: Changing to the requested working directory failed: Permission denied
systemd[57603]: rtorrent.service: Failed at step CHDIR spawning /usr/bin/screen: Permission denied
systemd[1]: rtorrent.service: Control process exited, code=exited, status=200/CHDIR
systemd[1]: rtorrent.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
 systemd[1]: Failed to start rTorrent.

Any idea how I can fix that ? Thanks.

What happens if you try to start rtorrent manually and not via the systemd service?
(just typing rtorrent and pressing enter in your terminal should run it for you).

Smart question. I did that already and it just starts normally.
