Reason: Mention disabling of dbus services through use of systemctl mask and overrides in /etc/dbus-1/services (Discuss in Talk:D-Bus#)

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 is enabled automatically when using systemd because dbus is a dependency of systemd.

Starting the user session

As of systemd 226-1 and dbus 1.10.0-3, the D-Bus session is started automatically. [1]


d-feet is an easy to use D-Bus debugger GUI tool. D-Feet can be used to inspect D-Bus interfaces of running programs and invoke methods on those interfaces. See its homepage for more info.
