Hi guys,

I was trying to run khelpcenter as a test for a KF5 application and ran into a dbus issue, although it should be running:
MVM2:scripts marko$ ps ax | grep dbus
 3925   ??  S      0:00.01 /opt/local/bin/dbus-daemon --nofork --session
 3935 s001  S+     0:00.01 grep dbus
MVM2:scripts marko$ /opt/kde/install/darwin/mavericks/clang/kf5-qt5/kde/workspace/khelpcenter/inst/Applications/KF5/khelpcenter.app/Contents/MacOS/khelpcenter 
Could not find drkonqi at /opt/kde/install/darwin/mavericks/clang/kf5-qt5/frameworks/kcrash/inst/lib/libexec/drkonqi
"Session bus not found
To circumvent this problem try the following command (with Linux and bash)
export $(dbus-launch)”

Any idea what I could be doing to diagnose this issue?

A similar issue exists with kate [1].
