Dear Pierre,

Thank you for your answer.

Hum? ok even if I am not sure to understand.
>From my understanding, emacs-guix just eases the install of the
non-elisp packages, e.g., guile.
If I install the non-elisp requirements with Guix then emacs-guix from
MELPA, it should work the same, isn't it?
The ELisp code of emacs-guix installed with Guix lives in /gnu/store
and the one of emacs-guix from MELPA lives in your personnal

However, it is a bad idea to mix ELisp from Guix and from MELPA. I agree.

The command `M-x guix-package-by-name` works; with the two ways of installation.
However, the popup interface does not; with the error
"guix-popup-format-profile: Symbol’s value as variable is void:

With this popup interface, the sequence `M-x guix p n' is roughly
speaking a shortcut for `M-x guix-packages-by-name'.

Thank you in adavance for any tips.

All the best,
