Dear Timothy,

Thank you for the hint. Unfortunately “~/.config/openbox/menu.xml” does not 
exists and "find ~/.config -name openbox” does not yield any result.

Also my ~/.guix-profile/bin is very unpopulated. Also at command line prompt I 
don’t have emacs. Shouldn’d this be installed by the install process?

W.r.t. how I “installed” lxde (just by guix install lxde). Do I need to 
reconfigure every time I install something?
