[ 3970.566] (EE) dbus-core: error connecting to system bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.FileNotFound (Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory) [ 3980.566] (EE) dbus-core: error connecting to system bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.FileNotFound (Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory) Present on beowulf for me but might affect ascii too. This setup has the dbus package removed, and I tried working around this with the configuration stanza "no-use-session-dbus" in /etc/X11/Xsession.options without any change. This looks to be a known Debian issue with an open bug report  that was apparently fixed but then reintroduced, and open since 2017 with no sensible workaround. It was reported to freedesktop.org  but got a simple "no fix" reply because this is apparently a niche case. But I think that's unlikely and that many Devuan users would have a similar setup so I'm filing it here. :https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=868453 :https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/issues/554 Cheers, chillfan [publickey - email@example.com - 0xB179B25B.asc (application/pgp-keys, attachment)] [signature.asc (application/pgp-signature, attachment)]
