I have the same output in terminal. When opening in Gui Gespeaker attempts to open, and flashes for a few second on the task bar, and then closes.

Thanks for reporting.

I found a corresponding bug report in Debian, so I have attached a bug watch. In the meantime python-dbus can be installed manually as a workaround.

Based on the duplicate report, this is at least affecting Ubuntu 17.10, but based on the report date for this one, it seems to have been present for a while. When reporting bugs in the future please use apport by using 'ubuntu-bug' and the name of the package affected. This adds additional debug information and version numbers which makes it easier to see which releases are affected or not. You can learn more about this functionality at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReportingBugs.
