this suggests you aren't actually running dbus from the systemd --user instance...

to add, i was starting gnome wayland for quite a while like this, and there was no systemd error. it showed up recently - i.e. in the last weeks.

$ systemctl --user dbus.service
Unknown operation dbus.service.

$ systemctl --user | grep loaded
...
51 loaded units listed. Pass --all to see loaded but inactive units, too.

$ cat /etc/pam.d/system-login | grep systemd

I just had the same symptoms with Gnome not starting on Arch and the problem was resolved by installing 'nvidia' package instead of 'nvidia-340xx-utils'.

this one does not seem related but i am putting it here in case there is a relation i cannot see. when i do not log in on the command line but put the command into bash_profile, starting falls into an endless loop, "cannot initialise inotify" and then "dbus-run-session ignoring unknown child process ...". i opened a bug here:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=780801

for the inotify i did something in the lines of:
echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/40-max-user-watches.conf && sudo sysctl --system

I met both issues as well.

I suspect that the endless loop issue is caused by the dbus-run-session process somehow sourcing .bash_profile (.zprofile in my case) again, so each message indicates a level of call stack. I avoided this issue by

if [[ -z $DISPLAY ]] && [[ $(tty) = /dev/tty1 ]] && [[ -z $XDG_SESSION_TYPE ]]
then XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland exec dbus-run-session gnome-session
fi

I am hit by this too since Arch updated to GNOME 3.24 a few days ago.

GDM appears to be unable to start a Wayland-based GNOME session and falls back to Xorg, that's why I started investigating.
When I run XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland dbus-run-session gnome-session from one of the system terminals, I get the same result as eliriand. The dbus user service is up and running.

I only got rid of the GNOME Xorg session a few weeks ago. Now my desktop is again insecure, and the activities overview lags again, it owns :-/ It was so smooth when running in Wayland mode

@eomanis I believe that's a situation worse than some of us here. In my case, I saw those messages, but GNOME session works fine. Same for @raindev. In you case GNOME session can't even start under Wayland, right (neither from GDM nor from terminal)?

And I'm wondering why this issue is still labeled with "needs-reporter-feedback" although @soloturn has already replied a month ago. Maybe there are way too many issues in the queue (over 600 now).

This seems to be an issue with the way the user session is started on arch, i.e. not something that we can solve here. Please move this discussion to the arch bugtracker. (Also, if somebody could later paste a link, for the sake of other people encountering this issue, that'd be appreciated.)

I'd like to chime in and say I've had a similar problem. For me, any Wayland session immediately crashes back to GDM.

When I run dbus-run-session -- gnome-shell --display-server --wayland, it WILL run a legitimate GNOME Shell wayland session; however, most custom icon theming and gtk2 themes don't work, my touchpad is unresponsive, and some apps (such as Rhythmbox) don't show headerbars.

When I try to run budgie-desktop with the same method, however, I get the error stated in the issue.

I am running a Intel HD/Nvidia laptop. I'm not sure if this is the same symptoms, if it's multiple issues, or where to go from here.

Any help would be appreciated.

$ systemctl --user status vino-server.service
Failed to get properties: Process org.freedesktop.systemd1 exited with status 1

What is org.freedesktop.systemd1?
What use is it if it exits with status 1 and does not offer a decent place to find out what is causing this brouha?
Previously we could simply start a daemon.

$ systemctl --state=failed --all
0 loaded units listed.
To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'.

How can this be?

On Archlinux, I've enabled [testing], upgraded everything, and the problem went away.

$ systemctl --user start vino
Failed to start vino.service: Process org.freedesktop.systemd1 exited with status 1
See user logs and 'systemctl --user status vino.service' for details.

System was taken to runlevel 3 and then to 5.
This impiies that this does not cleanly kill all GUI-related processes and/or does not perfectly start all GUI-related processes.
