So I'm afraid it still doesn't work. Though with the following there are at
least no errors.

Here is the top section of the .scm file.



(use-modules (gnu))
(use-package-modules nfs emacs-xyz)
(use-service-modules desktop networking ssh xorg mail docker)


    (file-append nfs-utils "/sbin/mount.nfs")

 (locale "en_GB.utf8")
 (host-name "parton")
 (timezone "Europe/London")

 (keyboard-layout (keyboard-layout "gb" "extd"))

      (bootloader grub-efi-bootloader)
      (target "/boot/efi")
      (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))

.... cont.
