Thanks for your help. I have done this but still having problems. I can
now run guix as root and install correctly.

However, if I setup for a normal user as in the manual:

cd /usr/local/bin
ln -s /var/guix/profiles/per-user/root/current-guix/bin/guix

I still cannot make it work for that normal user. I made sure
/usr/local/bin is in PATH. But the guix command is simply not found.

Thanks for any help.
