Can't, cause dbus-1-utils is not installed.

How should it be run, if it's not installed?

I'm logging in via kdm not gdm, but kdm launches dbus-launch too...

No. But xfce4-terminal only Recommends dbus-1-utils and thus it wasn't
installed when I installed xfce4-terminal... Hmm, maybe you could add a
little note to README.Debian of xfce4-terminal that for dbus-support to
work one needs to install dbus-1-utils?


Your supervisor is thinking about you.
