<gnutec>Install guix with gnome (XFCE had only 10MB) is a good idea. Comes with Browser, PDF reader, Image view e many other basic app. I just need install emacs, transmission, gnumeric, abiword and VLC (to open MP4, MKV and others).
<leoprikler>instead of vlc, you can also add some gst-plugins and totem will eat those formats as well :)
<peanutbutterandc>Hey there, I have been getting these build failures for a custom package and I would really appreciate some help in reviewing them. I am new to guix and packaging in general
<peanutbutterandc>nckx, The wikipedia page seems a bit too complex for me. Could you please explain it to me in simple terms?
<nckx>I only mentioned it since you talked about propagation above. It *would* have been possible that Font::TTF didn't contain a single use of IO::String, but that it was use'ing another module that needed it. *Had* that been the case, the error message would probably have been the same, but the fix different: instead of adding IO::String to Font::TTF's inputs, you'd add it to <that module>'s.
<nckx>I hope that makes sense, I'm tired and about to go to bed.
<peanutbutterandc>nckx, I will try to re-read and make sense of it. Thank you very much. Good Night (from GMT+5:45)
<nckx>Actually, why do you think that ‘[IO::String] is defined as a (propagated input) in the chordpro package definition’ would solve ‘Can't locate IO/String.pm in @INC’ for the perl-font-ttf package?
<peanutbutterandc>nckx, I don't really know. I'm using the simpleton assumption that all interpreted libraries go under propagated input. And perhaps I chose the wrong package to declare the propagated inputs in. This is my first attempt at this, really. I'm still a huge n00b.
<nckx>peanutbutterandc: Oh, no, propagation doesn't mean ‘interpreted’ at all (although there's a certain correlation).
<peanutbutterandc>nckx, Yes, it seems I have a lot to learn... I will try to figure things out from here based on the information you have given me. I'd hate to keep you awake for now. Perhaps if I haven't figured this out later, I could ask you again.
<thomassgn>trying to run sway, got error: "[backend/drm/atomic.c:57] LVDS-1: Atomic commit failed (modeset): permission denied" Anyone familiar with this?
<ison[m]>thomassgn: I just know one way sway differs from i3 is it includes display and input properties in the config file. So maybe you just need to configure them. Does running "swaymsg -t get_outputs" list LVDS-1?
