Hi Peter and Guillaume,

thanks for the help.

I've tried to use the Guix shell to have a complete environment for Kicad but for some reason it does not work (at least for me)

So here are the steps to reproduce:

$ guix shell kicad kicad-footprints kicad-symbols -- kicad

I start I new project and when I get the dialog about the components I wish to use in the project it all starts to go wrong.

The path to the symbols and footprints is also attached.

I may be running into a similar problem.

I modified the kicad package to set the KICAD7_3RD_PARTY environment variable as a native search path.

The environment variable is set properly according to the env shell command, but kicad reports the path as a concatenation of the default value and the environment variable.

If there is not a problem with guix concatentating environment variables somehow, then I assume there may be a bug in the kicad source code regarding environment variables.

I reported the issue to the kicad developers, but have not heard any response yet.
