INDI DBUS Error: Service Unknown

I have a Starlight Xpress all sky camera which is running with a python script right now on a windows computer. So, at the moment I am using ASCOM protocol in python to control the camera. However, INDI Dbus scripting seems like a good way to have it run on my stellarmate. I started with the example script indibus.py and it should run without errors when I dont change anything, right? However when I run it this error shows:
runfile('/home/stellarmate/Downloads/indidbus.py', wdir='/home/stellarmate/Downloads')
/home/stellarmate/Downloads/indidbus.py:12: DeprecationWarning: Importing dbus.glib to use the GLib main loop with dbus-python is deprecated.
Instead, use this sequence:
    from dbus.mainloop.glib import DBusGMainLoop
  from dbus import glib

DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.kde.kstars was not provided by any .service files

Is there anything I still have to change in the example script or anything else I do wrong possibly?

Thanks in advance for your time and help,

DBus is used when KStars is already running, I presume it was not running with this driver when you executed the script above?
