Package: hotwire
Version: 0.721-1
Severity: important

Running hotwire for the first time (on a (mostly) KDE system):

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/hotwire", line 209, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/hotwire", line 156, in main
    hotw_exists = ipc.singleton()
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/hotwire/sysdep/ipc_impl/ipc_dbus.py", line 62, in singleton
    dbusutil.take_name(BUS_NAME, bus=dbus.SessionBus())
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/dbus/_dbus.py", line 217, in __new__
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/dbus/_dbus.py", line 106, in __new__
    bus = BusConnection.__new__(subclass, bus_type, mainloop=mainloop)
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.5/dbus/bus.py", line 125, in __new__
    bus = cls._new_for_bus(address_or_type, mainloop=mainloop)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session

It worked fine after installing dbus-x11.
