If you add (elogind-service) to your system configuration, Shepherd
should work out of the box.

Alternatively, I do this on a minimal system:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
# Shepherd requires that this variable is set unless logind is present.
export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR="${HOME}/.local/run"

# ...and does not clean up its own socket after use.
rm -f "$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/shepherd/socket"

# Now we can start it.
shepherd &
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
