As described in <https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/08/msg00554.html>
I'm trying to reduce how much dbus-launch is used in Debian.
This package currently Depends on dbus-x11 as a way to get a session bus.
This package falls into the "desktop sessions" category: please replace
Depends: default-dbus-session-bus | dbus-session-bus
so that either dbus-user-session or dbus-x11 can be used. My short-term
goal with this is that major desktop environments in Debian stretch should
be able to run with either dbus-user-session or dbus-x11, with the other
This package will also need a change in upstream code to avoid running
dbus-launch when DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS is unset, but
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/bus exists. I've opened a separate bug for that.
