so after I set XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/tmp
i get the following errors
[source/backend/session/logind.c:511] User has no session
[source/backend/session/logind.c:599] Couldn't find an active session ora greeter session
[source/backend/session/direct-ipc.c:96] Failed to load session backend
[source/backend/backend.c:321] Failed to start a DRM session
[source/backend/sway/server.c:47] Unable to create backend

The first error looks like it start herehttps://github.com/swaywm/wlroots/blob/master/backend/session/logind.c#L503
where `sd_uid_get_sessionshttps://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/sd_uid_get_state.html` returns 0. I'm not sure why it would return 0 though.
