My problem is, in fact, thatI don't really know dbus and how it  
works, but I maintain gimp for macports and I usually try to go with  
the app's default settings.

Now, if I get it right, it should work if, for example, I am running  
gimp inside a dbus-launched gnome-session ?

I do have a dbus-daemon running but it does not seem sufficient.  I get

  yves$ gimp-2.4
process 16616: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed  
to read machine uuid: Failed to open "/opt/local/var/lib/dbus/machine- 
id": No such file or directory

So I replaced the gimp symlink with a little script that just does  
"dbus-launch gimp-2.4" but I am considering to make dbus an option  
rather than a default in macports.

Do you have an opinion about this ?
