Because GTK+ 3 starts the AT bridge automatically. Since you do not appear to have a D-Bus session running, this will also cause a D-Bus session to be started. Note this will happen with any GTK+ 3 application, not only zathura. > 2. Can I avoid them being started? > > - If so, how? Setting NO_AT_BRIDGE=1 in your environment should stop GTK+ 3 from starting the AT bridge.
