failed to execute child process "dbus-launch"

I want to prevent dbus-message from autostart on login and remove dbus-x11 and dbus-user-session.
Dbus-X11 has removed and everything is okey. But i couldn't delete dbus-user-session because of unmet dependencies:

root@lucky:~# apt purge dbus-user-session

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 glib-networking : Depends: gsettings-desktop-schemas but it is not going to be installed
 libgtk-3-common : Depends: dconf-gsettings-backend but it is not going to be installed or
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
apt --fix-broken install couldn't solve this problem

Then i delete dbus-user-session by dpkg --purge --force-depends

After that i can't start my graphic desktop . I see only terminal

"Unable to get connection to the message bus session

Failed to execute child process "dbus-launch" (No such file or directory)

What happened? Is there a way to return my normal xfce desktop?

Thank you!
