I broke/force-removed DBUS on ubuntu 15.04.
dpkg --force-all -i dbus.deb is spewing dbus-errors.
I'm in terminal as root, what do?
You should have thought about that before you uninstalled dbus. If you have to force it, you're not doing something right,
It won't delete your personal files though. you want it fixed?
i'n running that right now (remove instead of purge).
Watching as it deletes everything what i thought was absolutely critical for the system to run...
Expecting my DE to close any second.
apt-get install -f:
>Error getting authority: error initializing authority: error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktoo.PolicyKit1: timeout was reached (g-io-error-quark, 24)
>failed to execute operation: connection timed out

Service dbus won't start (manually and non-manual).
>dbus.ServiceErrir getting authority: error initializing authority: error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: timeout was reached (g-io-error-quark, 24)
>failed to start dbus.service: connection tined out
Well, apparently it's a known bug that occurs when you purge policykit-1, restart systemd and install a service.
fix should be to install policykit first, reboot, then everything else.
Luckily i have paragon extfs in windows partition so i can recover my stuff.
