Do you have the -f option on the scanbd command line? If so, scanbd does
not create the pid-file. And scanbm uses that to find the pid of

dbus does not require systemd! It works also without systemd. Don't get
confused by the fact that the configfile de.kmux.scanbd.server.service
is in the systemd directory. That is for systemd only (and I am not even
sure that it is really required there: we do not need udev activation).
The only file really required is scanbd_dbus.conf that goes
into /etc/dbus-1/system.d (this has no relation to systemd!). That tells
udev the access rules that apply for dbus messages. Do check that it
contains the userid you use on your system (this file assume that you
use saned as userid). So if your system has udev, just install
