Hi Gary,

thank you very much for sharing your Emacs manifest.

I tried to do what you said.

I created a manifest for Emacs only.

After doing it, Guix asked me to set the PATH.

I did it and after that this Emacs Manifest changed my general profile.
It became my general profile.
I couldn’t use my other programmes any more.
So I had to do a rollback.

I don’t know what I did wrong.

AFAIK to create a manifest is not yet a profile.
I have to create a manifest and then to create a profile with it.
Am I right?

If so, after creating a manifest, which commands do I have to use to make it a separate profile?

Probably to generate a manifest and make it a separate profile goes together, but I don’t know how to do it.

Kind regards

I do manage all of my Emacs packages with Guix. I list `emacs` and all
of its packages in a manifest file (emacs.scm). It looks like this with
my custom packages elided:

(use-modules ((gnu packages) #:select (specifications->manifest)))

  (list "emacs"

I actually split up all the user packages on my system into manifests
and isntall each one into its own profile, which I then activate on
startup. However, that's not really necessary for this example. You can
install the manifest packages above into your user profile with this

guix package -m emacs.scm
