I just tested stopping dbus (via systemd), this kills lightdm as well.
To run without dbus you would need a session manager that does not
require it to be running in order to run itself. On my system lightdm
did restart, but with networking disabled.

use dbus to talk to each other, for instance Compiz and Cairo-dock can
use it to interact with each other.  Before disabling it you would
need to ensure your entire DE is not using dbus, something like IceWM
invoked directly from Startx (running X as an ordinary user) should
work well for this. In fact, this sort of thing is a good reason for
having more than one DE installed.

I do know that restarting dbus in a systemd/lightdm setup also
restarts the whole X session, in fact this was a workaround for some
session restart issues I had when I first switched to MATE.

PS: At the moment I'm not running Ubuntu Studio, I'm at an openbox
session on Arch.

$ pidof dbus-daemon

I guess I don't really understand dbus. 5 instances are running. Is
