1. Idea: guile-cups-notifier (Was: Re: Improving GUI printing in GuixSD: (python-)system-config-printer, worth adding?) (score: 38)

So if system-config-printer is an ugly python hack based on pycups, can we do better in guile? (pycups is 95,9% written in C) https://github.com/molefrog/cupsidity Is an alternative to pycups written

Hi, Danny Milosavljevic transcribed 15K bytes: I agree to some extent. From a daily usage perspective, it is not nice. Especially looking at it from where I originally started, slackware and slackwar

Hi, so bug#26941 (which is only tangentially related) has made me think about a long-standing usability wart of Guix: The verbosity of Guix messages is really off-putting for regular users. Ideally,

Hello, Danny Milosavljevic <address@hidden> skribis: It should work (for local builds at least). Perhaps you also need --no-grafts? Or maybe there’s a bug. Sure, just look for in in /var/log/guix/d

Is it possible to have `guix package' NOT build from source? I really hate it when big packages like icecat, epiphany, or libreoffice start building on my machine. It takes about a day for each one

I agree that Guix is too verbose by default. It would be sufficient if Guix told the user that it is building from source for some reason. Upon failure it can print the location of the build log. --
