Hi Zelphir, Christophe,

Some time ago I created this:

Thanks for sharing!

Not directly related, but I just want to point out that you shouldn't ‘need’ any of it just to make Guix go.

Editing ~/.profile isn't a routine thing on a routine Guix installation, although for some reason some people believe otherwise. I'm not sure why. Adding magic incantations to it can cause hard-to-diagnose bugs, even long after the fact. 's Why it triggers me so; forgive me :-)

If Guix or its packages don't work without them, and you're not customising things like Zelphir, please pop in and tell us. Only add things to ~/.profile that are somehow ‘personal’, and that you understand.

Kind regards,
