How do you load your profile? "guix package --search-paths" or '.

In my ~/.bash_profile, there is '. "$GUIX_PROFILE/etc/profile"' and I
do not have any issue on a foreign distro.

Please could list which packages do you use which ae not (yet) packaged in Guix?
And you could give a try with "guix import elpa -r".  It should work
with MELPA too.

Please could you report which packages do not work properly for you?

My personal experience about mixing Emacs packages from Guix and from
package.el is really poor; it always breaks on one way or another.
Therefore, I switched to all Emacs packages from Guix.

All the best,
