No solution yet, https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2654 had a patch which should have fixed it, but it's missing at the moment. Same problem is with the howl package

Wipe out a lot of installed libs and install them again.

Apps cannot find /opt/gnome/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket (the system bus)

Some programs need to find the system bus, not just the session bus. If your system already has a recent-enough D-Bus system bus running, it may be possible for apps compiled with jhbuild to simply contact that bus, instead of a self-compiled one.

The error message looks like this:

(mutter:12345): GdmUser-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the D-Bus daemon: Failed to connect to socket /opt/gnome/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory

(mutter:12345): GdmUser-WARNING **: Couldn't connect to system bus: Failed to connect to socket /opt/gnome/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory

You will want to put this in your .jhbuildrc:

os.environ["DBUS_SYSTEM_BUS_ADDRESS"] = "unix:path=/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket"

Make sure to point that path to the correct location from your distribution.
