Run as a service on Centos 7

I succesfully got mopidy and iris installed from sources following the excelent documentation here:

and installing upgrading GStreamer packgages from here:

This was all completed as a local user. I’d like to now run mopidy as a service. I tried following the guide here:

There doesn’t appear to be a service created for mopidy. When I try to enable it

sudo systemctl enable mopidy 

I get

'Failed to execute operation: No such file or directory'

Thanks for your help (so close)!

The service files are only available in the package files for Debian, Arch etc. You’ll have to extract them from one of those files and possibly adapt them for centos.

You can download the package source from

If you are able to convert deb packages to rpm packages (or whatever centos wants) then that might be easier than setting the service up manually.
