Totally works now.  I was using the fish shell...and I don't believe
the fish shell is a POSIX compatible shell.  :) Works fine in bash.

Also thanks for the tips in my initial config!

And I really like the home-keyboard-service-type,
home-files-service-type, and home-state-service-type!  I've got a lot of
git repos.  It takes me forever to clone those.  Do you know if
home-state-service type will help me to automate something like

Git repo "programming" goes here:  /home/joshua/prog/

and git repo "cheatsheets" goes here: /home/joshua/prog/cheatsheets/

and git repo "guix-config" goes here: /home/joshua/prog/gnu/guix/guix-config/

and git repo "guix-src" goes here: /home/joshua/prog/gnu/guix/guix-src/

and git repo "guile" goes here: /home/joshua/prog/guile/

and git repr "" goes here: /home/joshua/prog/guile/

I don't that you are curious, but if you are my git repos are on

Thanks!  And thanks so much for working on this!  And thanks to Ludo for
testing it!
