xfce4 installation broken beginning from ascii due to the xfconf -> dbus-> systemd dependencies
Thanks all for your efforts to make devuan a really good progress to debian. The last days something broke the installation of xfce4 in ascii and ceres. From my investigations it comes from the following dependency chain:
- xfce4 depends on xfconf
- xfconf depends on default-dbus-session-bus ( -> dbus-user-session -> systemd STOP) or dbus-session-bus which is a virtual package which was also provided by dbus-x11
- But dbus-x11 in the devuan version doesnt provide any more the dbus-session-bus !
Solution: Please provide dbus-session-bus in the dbus-x11 package.
In the long term it seems to me better to replace dbus because the more closed relation to systemd.
PS: I dont know if the dbus-x11 or the xfconf should be modified. Maybe there is a better place under devuan-packages?
