Hi Julien!

Yes, I did see this before, but it is not a self-contained tutorial. For

states how a manifest file should look like. Looks like Scheme code,
that's fine. But no `use-modules` or anything? Is this correct? And then
what is the file name? I named it `manifest.scm`. Is this correct?

* Quote: "We can create a manifest specification per profile and install
them this way: […]" – A few questions come up immediately:

1. Is this literally, what I type into a terminal emulator?

2. Or does this go into my `.profile`?

3. Does `.guix-extra-profiles` already need to exist?

4. Did I do something wrong with my Guix installation, if it does not
exist yet?

5. Do I need to input those 4 lines every time to create an environment?

All these things need clarification and make me unsure about whether I
am doing anything correctly.

Silly me forgot to mention, that I installed Guix package manager on a
foreign distro (Trisquel 8), not using it in a Guix distro.

I'll try to go with best guesses and see how it goes. Thanks so far!
