Wine on OSX: org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

It’s very common when running Wine apps on Max OSX to see the following error (usually the first line of the wine output):

Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: 
  launchd did not provide a socket path, 
  verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!

The fix for this is very simple. From terminal, run:

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist

[enter your password:]

and then:

launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

Simple, and yet oddly not well documented. Hence, posting it here. Hope it helps.
