<lfam>There are usually tons of grafts. By definition, grafts are only used when many packages are affected
<j3kyl_>hey, guix packages are in the PATH, still Debian Dmenu cant "see" those packages, but terminal emulators can...
<j3kyl_>hey, next-gtk-webkit is list in website packages, but guix package -s cant find it...
<j3kyl_>just installed guix with that guix-install.sh script
***catonano_ is now known as catonano
<reepca-laptop>have we got an input method for hanyu pinyin? I see in ubuntu it's called ibus-m17n, but it seems we've only got m17n-lib.
<brendyyn>ive been meaning to package more fcitx stuff'
<apteryx>lfam: I see! Maybe the new UI made me more aware of them.
<lfam>Yes, previously they were reported as "regular" builds
<apteryx>OK, got my OpenBoardView package to run and load GTK libraries dynamically... It now crashes on a dbus error: ** (openboardview:2958): WARNING **: 23:51:30.265: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files
<brendyyn>which is probably part of the reason i use fcitx
<rekado>brendyyn: I meant that the other way around: GNOME will have better integration with ibus (and using other input methods might become more difficult). You can still use ibus without GNOME, of course.
<reepca-laptop>rekado: aye, I use ibus-libpinyin as well, which is good for pinyin->characters, but not so great for pinyin->pinyin-with-tone-marks
<lsl88>g_bor: yes I thought that ubuntu was fine because of showing the commands in the console, but yes, I was going to add that even I use the console maximized, gnome still shows the panel. but we are not going to screencast, so I guess it is OK. as rekado says.
<lsl88>does someone know how to copy/paste text in a tty? I have been looking for it on the internet and did not find it, unless using tmux, byobu
<rekado>in a tty I don’t know of a convenient way. There’s gpm for mouse selection support on the tty, but I think it’s a bit inconvenient.
<rekado>I think it would be better to do this in a graphical terminal (where font rendering is better anyway).
<lsl88>rekado: I know, but the point is that I cannot manage to open tty's in qemu, while installing guixSD, which is quite strange, or maybe there is a way of setting it that I don't know. It is not terrible, they are just a few commands that I have already kind of remember without looking at the documentation. But I was asking just in case, since I did not know that shitf+pgup for instance allowed me to scroll
<lsl88>rekado: I have already seen that site, but it doesn't work. I cannot test it since when I run the vm, I already have the GUI. And the mouse turns crazy. it starts moving all over the window. My machine is a Lenovo thinkpad, and the f* work with the fn control key
<lsl88>rekado: maybe I could create another VM just to test those solutions and see if any of them work. But for instance, for bare metal installation on my retroPC, the mouse worked for copypasting commands in tty2.
<rekado>lsl88: I just tried it and the sendkey method works fine for me.
<rekado>i.e. first hit Ctrl-Alt-2 to switch to the qemu console
<rekado>and then type “sendkey ctrl-alt-f2” on the prompt
<lsl88>rekado: it has the flag. Could that be because I did not uninstall vBox? Of course I am not running both Hypervisors at the same time. And I promise to use a GuixSD T-shirt over my clothes in Brussels and I am telling everybody about guix. I am still running guix over another VM just because even Ubuntu breaks out of nothing, I like trying commands and I am still learning and I don't want to break my machine if I make a mistake. I don't m
<lsl88>nd uninstalling vBox and running another foreign distro for going on playing with guix. WDYT? I can imagine your answer ;)
<rekado>I don’t think it’s because vBox is installed.
<rekado>I’m afraid I don’t have enough experience with Ubuntu to figure out why the virtual extensions won’t work.
<lsl88>rekado: OK, I will search for that on the internet. I don't like Ubuntu for the freedom stuff and for other reasons. I would never recommend it for a server, for instance. But I need it for other stuff.
<joshuaBPMan>Hello, I'm a little confused. Why does the package emacs-matrix-client specify propogated inputs like "a, dash, f", but not "email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, f@.03.2"?
<joshuaBPMan>Isn't the point of guix that you explicitly specify dependencies versions?
<roelj>joshuaBPMan: If you mean the package definition, then the "a", "dash", and "f" point to Scheme variables (which are a specific version for a given git commit of Guix).
<emacsen>Hi. I'm a guix noob, and trying to get it going. I'm on a Ubuntu system and I used the install script. My installation keeps complaining about locale, even after I run the locale installation and env variable commands as it asks me to
<g_bor>emacsen: most probabl you need those command to be executed from the root profile also, and then restart the daemon.
<lsl88>emacsen: hi! I faced that issue before and happlily solved it :) i am guix pulling over my qemu machine now, so my RAM is hating me. I have to go now but later I share in paste debian how I solved :)
