zh-CN:D-Bus Template:Article summary start Template:Article summary text Template:Article summary end D-Bus is a message bus system that provides an easy way for inter-process communication. It consists of a daemon, which can be run both system-wide and for each user session, and a set of libraries to allow applications to use D-Bus.


D-Bus can be installed with the dbus package from the official repositories. Since D-Bus is required by large number of applications, it is likely that you already have it installed.

To start the dbus service manually, see the Daemons#Starting_manually article. It can also be configured to start automatically on boot.

Starting the user session

gnome-session, startkde and startxfce4 will start a D-Bus session automatically if it isn't already running. The template for ~/.xinitrc (/etc/skel/.xinitrc) will do the same since it sources scripts in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/, including 30-dbus. Make sure that the code is included in your ~/.xinitrc:


# Source scripts in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/
if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
    for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
        [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
    unset f

exec $your_window_manager
