<Tirifto>I'm running Guix on Parabola and it's been working well so far, ever since the setup was done properly! But I find that I need to start the installed applications via the command line; would there be a known way to make them integrate with GNOME (or just any desktop environment in general), so that they show up in menus, get recognised by file managers, etc.?
<Tirifto>Nope, it doesn't tell me to export any paths. The last things I see upon installing a package are a series of ‘building…’ packages, and ‘pakoj 9 en profilo’, which literally translates to ‘packages 9 in profile’.
<Tirifto>vagrantc: I see. So basically there exists a path where the necessary files are at, and GNOME uses a list of paths where it looks for those kinds of files, so I would need to add the appropriate path to that list?
<Tirifto>Blackbeard[m]: It did tell me to add some paths early on, but those were guix-specific, rather than package specific, so they don't show up anymore.
<Tirifto>(Actually I think one package may have requested a path specific to itself… and in that case I've probably added it.)
<kmicu>Tirifto: Without Parabola and GNOME I cannot locate the issue so we need to wait for someone else to help. As a workaround you could write your own myapp.desktop with entry like ‘Exec=/home/tirifto/.guix-profile/myapp/binary’.
<Tirifto>kmicu: Thanks for trying! I might give that workaround a try later.
<kmicu>Or as a bigger workaround switch to Guix System and we can fix and investigate the whole day xD
<Tirifto>I think I'll pass on that for a couple more years. xP
<Tirifto>Though I might give that a try earlier on my secondary computer…
<katco>bavier: hey thanks for the help yesterday. sorry i didn't answer your questions; i had an unexpected dns problem crop up
<Tirifto>Then again, I don't want to mess it up trying to install Guix System, because I rely on my secondary computer at times when I mess up my primary computer, which, in turn, might be easier to deal with were it running Guix System…
<katco>bavier: so to answer your question, debian does package llgpl packages
<atw>Slightly OT, but I'm trying to debug an X11 problem in Guix: setting GDK_SYNCHRONIZE and running a program in gdb seems to freeze all of X. Am I doing it right? I'm following an error message from gtk ("To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment variable ...")
