Re: unbound variable in attempt to install cinnamon-desktop

This is written in the manual


Because the GNOME, Xfce and MATE desktop services pull in so many packages, the default %desktop-services variable doesn’t include any of them by default. To add GNOME, Xfce or MATE, just cons them onto %desktop-services in the services field of your operating-system:

(use-modules (gnu))
(use-service-modules desktop)
  ;; cons* adds items to the list given as its last argument.
  (services (cons* (service gnome-desktop-service-type)
                   (service xfce-desktop-service)

These desktop environments will then be available as options in the graphical login window.

but my config.scm looks differently concerning MATE desktop.

      (list (service mate-desktop-service-type)
            (service enlightenment-desktop-service-type)
            (service cinnamon-desktop-service-type)
                        (service cups-service-type
                                        (web-interface? #t)
(extensions (list cups-filters hplip)))) >
                        (service openssh-service-type)
            (service tor-service-type)
               (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))
            (service libvirt-service-type
                      (unix-sock-group "libvirt")
                      (tls-port "16555")))
            (service virtlog-service-type
                      (max-clients 1000))))

       (modify-services %desktop-services
                config => (guix-configuration
                  (inherit config)
(extra-options (list "--gc-keep-derivations=yes" "--gc-keep-outputs=yes>
         (sane-service-type _ => sane-backends))))

that’s why I simply added one line for the cinnamon-desktop
hoping it will work.
But it doesn’t work.

Kind regards

You need to include the module implementing the Cinnamon desktop /service/.
It does not appear to be defined anywhere in GUIX.

Did you add a channel with a Cinnamon service
or just assumed it exists in GUIX?
