What's difficult? I just installed and tested thunar successfully in the i3 window manager, no additional action on my part was needed. That is because dbus was already installed and provisioned for use with browsers and other GUI tools.
  • The dbus messagebus system service script was already running, having previously issued # rcctl enable messagebus after dbus was installed.
  • Per the dbus pkg-readme, I already had the user launch script provisioned in my .xinitrc file:
    if [ -x /usr/local/bin/dbus-launch -a -z "${DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS}" ]; then
            eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session`
