Hm, I don't see any particular thread mentioned...

Maybe he meant e.g. this one?

yes, looks like

This is in fact a different issue
than the missing connection to dbus. Other things are not working properly
as well in KDE, like (no change of volume via hotkeys, no on-screen
for the same) so I guess KDE is not necessarily the originator of the

Certainly not.
The dbus user session bus is not found, and XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is not set.
The latter is normally done by pam_systemd on login.

This looks very much like (mentioned in the
above thread), which IMHO is the same issue as

In short:
It seems that systemd "forgets" that /home is mounted in certain cases and
tries to mount it again on login.
This fails of course (as it is already mounted), causing pam_systemd to
error out and again unset XDG_RUNTIME_DIR and deleting the corresponding
directory (/run/user/$id/) which should contain the socket to connect to
the DBUS session bus (as referenced by $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS).

A "workaround" would be to run "export dbus-launch" in the shell before
starting "akonadictl start" or other applications, but that won't "fix"
already running things of course.

yes, and that forces other things to fall apart. like camera for example

Markos found out that it works for him when removes the "nofail" option from
the fstab entry for /home (and use "defaults" instead), maybe this would
help here too?

When I remove the nofail option I end up in a rescue session. running
systemctl start mount.home
fails as well. So I put the nofail option into /etc/fstab back in (encrypted
xfs partition, as in
and left the rescue session with CRTL-D. not the graphical screen came up, but
after logging in it still failed.

Otherwise, this should work too I suppose:
When I umount /home and mount it manually via
systemctl start home.mount
again the state is fixed and I can log in anymore.

(taken from the second bug report, you need to do that *before* logging in
of course)

Sure. But seems not to be the silver bullet yet. And it leaves the question
open why it suddenly fails.
(will try a rollback now...)
