[lxc-users] Autostart Unpriviledged Containers

I have tried this but for some reason I am having trouble.

I have pastebins for my systemd unit file and the bash script it calls.

It appears as though it succesfully creates the cgroup "me", i see it, and
i own it and have seemingly correct permission to it. But as my normal user
I cannot move the current tty to that cgroup. I cannot even do it as root!
