Hi,
Yes:

busctl --user | grep Notifications
org.freedesktop.Notifications  - -    -   (activatable) -

The test was done with a new user and xfce's default configs.

No, notify-send sits there for 50 seconds and then exits but no notification pops up:

time notify-send "test message"

real    0m50.059s
user    0m0.005s
sys     0m0.003s


OTOH if I start a KDE session for the same test user notifications work,
so XFCE and KDE are doing things differently.
