Select the user account that you want and do a:
chsh -s /PATH/TO/COMMAND USER
Where "/PATH/TO/COMMAND" is the program you want executed and "USER" is the
user account. I use this to set users to only be able to open a mail
program, or on a dedicated system (account software or some such) where only
one thing is ever needed.
I wouldn't use this for rsync. For that, I would use a cron job and rsync
over ssh to backup things.

A good soldier is not violent.
A good fighter is not angry.
A good winner is not vengeful
A good employer is humble.
This is known as the Virtue of not striving.
