Ah, ok. No, it's not installed on my machine (I managed to avoid
dbus up to now). But since you are doing bluetooth stuff, you are
going to need dbus. And dbus-x11 is just the infrastructure to
get the dbus user session started at the X11 login (other DEs
like Gnome and KDE have other methods). So yes, dbus-x11 does
make sense for you.

I don't see the explicit dependency at the moment, but you
can ask with

  aptitude why dbus-x11

I don't think so: all of bluez is deeply dependent on dbus.

I *guess* you might get away without dbus-x11, but then you'd
have to start your dbus user session yourself (and somehow pass
the relevant tidbits to all relevant environments, so the
applications can "find" the dbus session). But I'm far from an
expert here, since I've been avoiding that for years ;-)

Not directly, as far as I can see... perhaps indirectly. Perhaps
"aptitude why" sheds some light on that.

I'm just an exported flowerpot from much farther south, and then,

Nice. The "heat wave of +5°C" sounds most attractive :-)

Oh, yes, it should be there: /proc/cmdline

Yes, you might want to fix that first before decorating your
kernel command line further.

I see.

No idea. Perhaps hundred years?
