That is precisely what I did, as you can see in the big configuration I
sent in the first email. However, I’m worried new users would be
disappointed if tramp does not work out of the box for guix system

OK, I understand that the path order on emacs-side is not the same as
that of the server side, so a malicious actor could try to fit
malicious programs in places that would be ignored by the system, but
picked by emacs.

If you want to avoid extra work on the server, the proposed solutions
don’t work, so uname -sr should return something useful, or better yet,
getconf should work. I think I get it.

I’ll see if something can be done on guix side.

Best regards,
