Add the user account name you want

useradd rosuser

Make sure there is no password so the account can be used on startup

passwd -d rosuser

Sset files to be owned by this user, will need to be done after every update

chown -R rosuser:rosuser /opt/ros
chown -R rosuser:rosuser /etc/init.d/rosd 

Edit the default service file

vi /etc/init.d/rosd 

Change the su command on line 15 to use the required user (rosuser in this case)

su rosuser -c ${_ROS_ROOT}/resources/start

Test that it works by logging in as the user and starting the service

su - rosuser
/etc/init.d/ros restart

Note that by using a non root account, you will not be able to user ports <1024
