Dear Alex,

Thank you for your answer and the nice emacs-guix interface.

After the reinstall from MELPA, it appears to me that the guix popup
works as expected. :-)

Note that the popup does work properly with emacs-guix, since the
letter p is binded twice (processes and package).
I guess that the next release (available in MELPA) will fix this.

Hum? I am too newbie to have an opinion. :-)

A random idea.
What Guix needs to expose to emacs-guix?
And these missing guile modules should be packed to e.g. guix-minimal.
What do you think?

Thank you again.

All the best,
