This is a bug that needs to be treated separately.  Clearly Nautilus
should be able to play videos.

There’s Pidgin, but maybe it’s not really part of GNOME.

I agree, but again, I think GNOME provides everything for these tasks.
Also, at this point, the target audience of GuixSD is not “users that
cannot learn to install”—if someone managed to install GuixSD, surely
they’ll find out how to install LibreOffice.

Sounds like a bug.  Could you report all the details to
address@hidden: how to reproduce, what you expected, and what you got?

Thank you!
