I did read section 2.6.1 but i could not understand the implications of the 
stated info.

I used the guix install script to install the guix package manager onto 
trisquel, which is an ubuntu based distro.

i have been putting my environment variables in .profile and am not familiar 
with using systemd. would you provide more specific info for what exactly to do 
in steps as far as adding this guix locale support properly into my systemd 

this might be a good feature to add to future versions of the guix package 
manager installer script.

Thank you for your assistance :)
