We cannot (and don’t want to) let Guix packages modify the user’s home
directory.  On my system XDG_DATA_DIRS contains

On my system too. 2 times. Like this


these are the last 3 values
Is this not enough to let Gnome
find the cursors?

It's not. I just tried again. It crashes

(The “adwaita-icon-theme” package is installed in my system profile.)

The first time I had not that installed in my profile. And the crash was immediate.

With that installed, it stumbles, it crashes at the second attempt
