Hmmm. that is all as I would expect.

Without xfce4-notifyd running,

 busctl --user | grep Notifications

should list org.freedesktop.Notifications as (activatable). Does it?

If so, I am unsure why xfce4 is not activating it on startup. Do you have
something in Settings -> Notifications preventing it?

The other thing I wonder is if it is not running at startup because no
notifications have been sent? I think the DBus service will only be activated as
required. So without xfce4-notifyd running, if I send a notification
(notify-send 'Test message'), xfce4-notifyd is activated and the notification
appears.

Does it behave like that for you?

Mark
