I managed to launch the app by mixing the command above with some parts of the 
command used in another message about the same subject 
( So this 

guix shell -C -E "^DISPLAY$" -E "^XAUTHORITY$" --expose="$XAUTHORITY" 
--share=/tmp/.X11-unix/ --share=$HOME/.Xauthority

But I'm just typing things without much consideration and hoping for the best 
:) For example, the application now starts but it has no icons. So I guess I'll 
go find some information about all the fundamental variables and resources 
required by GTK apps to run.
