<Telior>hi guix! I'm trying to fix my stumpwm, the faq says I need to modify my .xinitrc or my .xsession, but I don't seem to have either one. The faq also says if I don't use neither of those files I should make the modification "upstream of stumpwm". What should I do?
<iyzsong>okay, then I guess 'GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS' not work for the problem, btw what's the problem?
<bandali>Telior, if it's on guix, we already have a package definition for pdf-tools in the (gnu packages emacs-xyz) module, as emacs-pdf-tools
<Telior>bandali, thx, i'll try adding that and rebuilding right away :D
<Telior>iyzsong, scrolling up and down on next browser stutters a lot
<Telior>I read the following on the faq: My mouse wheel doesn't work with gtk3 applications Add the following toyour .xinitrc: sh export GDK_CORE_DEVICE_EVENTS=1 If you don't use a .xsession or a .xinitrc, then you must set this somewhere upstream ofstumpwm.
<Telior>bandali, so I should just add (gnu packages emacs-xyz) to the (use-modules) bit on my config.scm, right?
<guix-vits>morrigan__: Strange! Aren't `guix system reconfigure` require the .scm file as an argument?
<apteryx>it is normal that when an offoad machine is offline, 'guix system reconfigure' just hangs after it times out?
<guix-vits>morrigan__: If you use the sudoedit, to changes were saved the file should be closed first.
<morrigan__>guix-vits: They do take the scm file as an argument, and I had only lightly edited it from the fresh install. No xsession was included in the file after a fresh install, so my first reconfigure seems to have broken it.
<atw>when I upgraded my system to guix 1.0.1-13.50299ad, I have some odd behavior when I boot, the most obvious of which is that the display manager doesn't start. Have others observed something similar? I can work around by booting into an older system generation
<atw>actually, I think the version of guix I have in the "good" generation is the same as the one I have in the "bad" generation
<atw>yeah, forget the guix version, pretty sure that's invariant here
<atw>anyway, some of the other symptoms are that the console stays in that low resolution, if you know what I mean? There are some other error messages but I haven't found a good way to capture them yet
<guix-vits>atw: morrigan__ had some issues with VM today ("haha the update broke openbox")
<atw>I'll have to ask them more...for me, sddm doesn't start, dunno if theirs is a similar issue
<atw>mm I don't think so. And sorry for the scant details, I haven't figured a good way to capture what's printed to the console before I log in, and rebooting to reproduce this takes time. I will follow up when I can capture more info, just wanted to throw this out there in case others have seen it
<raghavgururajan>atw No worries. "session c1 removed" might appear at last stage. Just before when display usually start.

<leoprikler>atw I'm pretty sure I experience the same bug. I think it might have to do with the upgrade to mesa 19.3
<leoprikler>I also experience troubles with my network card with the newest kernel.
<leoprikler>I hate how these two components can break anything and not even tell you about it in a meaningful way.
<nicolas-guix>Just installed guix last night. Things worked fine at first but whenever I install anything as a user, it messes up my locale and gnome in general. If I delete .guix-profile, everything is good, but as soon as I do `guix install ...`, if I restart gnome all the locales are broken. Anyone seen anything similar before?
<nicolas-guix>To clarify, by broken locales I mean `localectl list-locales` comes up empty.
<leoprikler>perhaps try installing glibc-locales in your user profile
<nicolas-guix>Yeah, I've done that since it was mentioned in the reference manual
<janneke>wait...doesn't "guix system reconfigure" need qemu-minimal for something?
<PotentialUser-56>hey, after i did "guix pull" and then "guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm" and rebooted, ntpd won't let me boot :/ it gives me TIME_ERROR 0x41 even though the time on my system is right. maybe someone here can help?
<nun>Hey, I'm currently trying to add a new window manager to my system, after only installing xfce through the tui installer. According to the documentation, I have to do it system-wide, for gdm to recognize the .desktop file, but when I try to add it to my config, gdm simply doesn't start after reconfiguring and rebooting. My network interfaces also seem to be gone when I do this.
<janneke>PotentialUser-56: i have no idea; what does "won't let me boot" mean, exactly?
<bandali>bricewge, interesting. for me, when the ehternet stops working, i can plug in my usb wifi dongle and that works just fine. hmm...
<bandali>i'll definitely peek at dmesg and the system log the next time this happens and see if i can find anything useful there
<bricewge>wigust: It was copyright-limit default value that was the issue. Setting it to nil fixed it.
<abralek>I finally packaged davmail and friends. There are a lot of dependencies, so I have prepared openjfx patches (8)
<abralek>Openjfx goes first) I would like to get some feedback/review.
<frafra>is it possible to install guix as non-root user? I tried with fakechroot + busybox but I get a "Permission denied" when I try to source etc/profile (2.1 binary installation, step 3); if I avoid fakechroot I get a lot of symbolic links; is there a better way to do that?
<abralek>Shell I just send all 8 patches to guix-devel?
<sirgazil>One thing I noticed is that the keyboard layout specified in my Guix system configuration file doesn't have any effect in sway.
<sirgazil>Now I'm looking for a way to fix that and use Capslock as an additional Ctrl.
<malaclyps>I'm trying to install a software package in git that has a guix.scm -- I've tried `guix build --install-from-file ./guix.scm` but there are two packages defined in the guix.scm, so it is returning a list of packages, not a single one to install. How do I specifiy just one of the packages?
<NieDzejkob>emsyr: You shouldn't be putting packages like that in your system config
<guix-vits>malaclyps: if you append package's name to `guix build ...`?
<NieDzejkob>If you want to specify them in a file, look up "manifests"
<emsyr>It's not in my config.scm but I need for certain websites where icecat is not compatible with.
<leoprikler>It shouldn't be built if there's no reference to it in your config.scm
<leoprikler>If you install it locally in your profile and guix upgrade fails, you can do --do-not-upgrade=ungoogled-chromium
<emsyr>leoprikler that sounds like what I need. Thanks!
<malaclyps>hmm, I tried `guix package --install-from-file=guix.scm guile-gi` and `uix package --install-from-file=guix.scm -e guile-gi` but neither worked (it's from https://github.com/spk121/guile-gi ). I feel a little foolish because I swore I got this working previously.
<leoprikler>`guix package -f guix.scm` should work just fine.
<malaclyps>leoprikler, it gives me a "guix package: error: cannot install non-package object: (#<package guile-gi@git /home/danny/tmp/guile-gi/guix.scm:57 7f5b71bc6960> #<package guile-next-gi@git /home/danny/tmp/guile-gi/guix.scm:106 7f5b801366e0>)" error unfortunately
<emsyr>leoprikler unfortunately --do-not-upgrade is not an option for guix system ...
<spk121>malaclyps: if you're installing from the guile-gi github, we've just been messing with that bit of code
<emsyr>NieDzejkob you dug it up correctly. I took a look at my config.scm and I found it forgotten from a previous try to install it. I had it in my profile too.
<emsyr>NieDzejkob system update was completed successfully. Thanks!
<nckx>sneek: later tell moewe Guix time-machine is awesome, but please keep reporting broken packages! Godot should build just fine now; a dependency (wslay) was building unreliably and had failed on CI.
