If those services are tied to a X login session, they should not be started via systemd --user (at least, not yet) Let me go into a bit more detail. There is only ever *one* systemd --user instance per user. It is typically started, the first time you log in and stopped, once there is no more active login session for a particular user. If you have multiple active login sessions (say X, and one console login on tty2), you still have only one systemd --user instance. If you now logout from X, the systemd --user instance is not stopped, only if you also logout from tty2. I hope, you can now see that your kj-keepassx.service is not going to work. What you really want, is to start that service as part of a X login session. Those are traditionally handled via /etc/xdg/autostart and ~/.config/autostart There are attempts to provide such a XDG autostart equivalent facility in systemd, by providing a target, which becomes active once a X session starts and becomes inactive, once the X session ends. User units which are supposed to be tied to X sessions can then bind to that target. See https://blogs.gnome.org/laney/2018/06/26/starting-sessions-with-systemd/ if you want to read a bit more about it. For the time being, starting a service via a systemd user service which is bound to the life-time of an X session, is not really supported and I would recommend you use ~/.config/autostart for it instead.
