i made my service

/etc/systemd/system/guake.service 

containing

[Unit]
Description=Start guake 

[Service]
ExecStart=/bin/bash guake

[Install]
WantedBy=graphical.target

then i did

systemctl start guake.service 
systemctl status guake.service

but i get

● guake.service - Start guake Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/guake.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: failed (Result: core-dump) since Thu 2015-07-16 21:14:36 SAST; 4s ago Process: 10785 ExecStart=/bin/bash guake (code=dumped, signal=SEGV) Main PID: 10785 (code=dumped, signal=SEGV)

I also tried setting WantedBy=multi-user.target but it has the same error

First, you're probably looking at running Guake as an application inside your user session and not as a root application. Thus you should look at systemd --user services (ArchWiki: systemd/User).

Then, Guake is an X11 appliation and thus requires a running X11 session. systemd does not (yet) handle X11 sessions, thus the best option is to look at the features offered by you desktop environment to auto launch programs upon session startup. As far as I know this can easily be done with KDE and GNOME.
