<apteryx>wednesday: the patch-source-shebangs in (guix build gnu-build-system) should have taken care of it, as long as python is part of the inputs. Have you tried by simply adding python and not doing anything else?
<maddo>groff is actually much more straightforward than LaTeX, man pages are pretty clear actually
<maddo>dunno what you need to do for school tho so can't help much there
<marusich>However, I won't lie: if you just need a rudimentary document, LibreOffice is hard to beat. It's intuitive and easy to do most things in LibreOffice, so if you don't have specific requirements for a document, it's a good bet.
<maddo>It's a matter of habit I think. To be perfectly honest I never really managed to like office in any of its implementations
<maddo>I'm not on my main pc tho so I can't link it to you yet
<marusich>I have used mom in the past to write a software design document that incorporated pic diagrams into the document; it was built with a simple Makefile, and it was pretty nice to be able to check it all into source control as readable, editable text files. However, in the end my team wanted Markdown, and I'm sad to say I had to relent :(
<maddo>remind me tonight (it's 10 am right now in my tz)
<ATuin>i'm a bit confused with "pre-inst-env" script. is it just setting env variables right? the store is the same as when using my normal daemon?
<ATuin>i have run ".configure" and "make". Do I need to run make again if i modified a scm inside gnu/packages?
<ATuin>i want to create an emacs package inside emacs-xyz.scm to learn how to work with it
<nckx>ATuin: Yes, pre-inst-env (‘pre-installation environment’) just makes sure that the guix you built from git finds all the dependencies without being installed.
<nckx>You don't need to run make to apply the changes, but Guile will print a warning and run slightly slower for each uncompiled modified file. So if you (or ‘git pull’) have modified many files you'll want to run make again just to get rid of the warnings and improve performance.
<reepca-laptop>Hm, trying to build openra but it can't seem to find some executable called "csc" so it thinks mono isn't installed, even though it is... I'm not familiar with C# land, any idea what's up there?
