comment Running a .desktop file in the terminal
gtk-launch firefox.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/ launches firefox viewing the directory ~/.local/share/applications/ for me. Seems if you were correct, firefox should not have been passed the directory of the .desktop file as an argument. In fact the directory passed to gtk-launch is not supposed to be used to locate the dir containing the .desktop file (and is not, in fact)

comment How do I find out which repository a package comes from?
Do apt-cache {showpkg,policy} actually show where an installed package was installed from, or just where it would be installed from at the time it is queried?

comment What program starts dbus-daemon?
Pithikos: per my comment on your answer, those commands don't help if the process has already been reparented to init, as was the case here

comment What program starts dbus-daemon?
Processes whose parent has exited are reparented to init by the kernel. So children of init are in fact not normally directly started by that process. In this case, dbus-daemon is not -- see dobey's answer

comment What program starts dbus-daemon?
Hi schkovich. That comment was to help out dobey, who seemed unsure whether my "how could I have answered this for myself" was a further two questions rather than, as it was, an invitation/reminder to "teach a man to fish". If you take a look at the original question, you'll see what it's about in more detail: explicitly session, not system. By the way, thanks for your answer: I was happy to upvote it as useful info, even if not directly answering my question.

Looks like one of dobey's edits changed the answer to answer the question: thanks dobey! (either that or I misread it the first time -- though don't think I did that). Here is the file with the code that runs dbus-launch: /etc/X11/Xsession.d/75dbus_dbus-launch (and I assume some X code is responsible for running that code, which is in turn run by lightdm or gdm)
