<g_bor>I have a question: I am under the impression, that on guixsd the only dotfiles touched by guix are under the guix profile. Is that correct, or is there any other file in the user home that is possibly modified?
<g_bor>I also have an I guess trivial question, but what way do you configure the keyboard layout for the graphical login screen? My keyboard layout on console, and inside the graphical environment is ok, but on the login screen I'm having problems.
<roptat>g_bor: you can't configure the keyboard layout for the login screen
<roptat>and guix doesn't touch any dotfile except for .config/guix and .guix-profile
<rekado>g_bor: you can change the keyboard layout for slim, but it requires changing X server settings.
<g_bor>rekado: ok, thanks for that. I will have a look at that.
<g_bor>I've also seen that several people here are using stow to manage user configuration. I'm thinking about if there is a good way to incorporate this to a GuixSD configuration? My typical use case goes like this: I have my user configuration stored somewhere in a git repository. I clone that, and then run stow on the clone, so populating my home. I was thinking about incorporating this into something like: under users have an optional stow-origin
<g_bor>filed, like we have origin for a package definition. We could reuse the download possibilites from there.
<g_bor>I've recently received a mail that my talk on the Hungarian Free Software Conference had been accepted. This will be on 12. May. I will send the slides, as soon as I have the information about the duration of the talk.
<thomassgn>Would like a way to add manifest to profile, but haven't figured out how.
<pkill9>i would assume by piping list of package to xargs or something
<thomassgn>Would be really good for choosing what kind of packages to update/install and so on. one manifest for simple utilities that I want everywhere, one for libreoffice and other similar heavy-weighters and so on
<axd-v>hey everyone, does anyone happen to use a vpn on their systems without the gtk frontend. I still am using the default choice of NetworkManager, however I use a window manager sans environment thus don't have the gnome plumbing preinstalled to use their applet. I installed the package `network-manager-openvpn` but fail to see how to make use of it using nmcli.
<axd-v>caffe`: I can only figure out how to add new connections or edit existing ones using nmtui, don't see any other functionality exposed through it.
<bavier`>pkill9: it is, you can override the slim-service's default theme settings
<bavier`>I don't know that there are any examples of this anywhere
<axd-v>caffe`: actually, I'm taking a closer look at nmtui right now and there are some options when I try to add something manually. Would `Ip tunnel` or `vlan` be taken to mean vpn in their use? Doubt it, but not sure.
<caffe`>okay, i wasn't sure if vpn settings would appear there or not. I haven't installed that package
<axd-v>I tried running `nmcli connection import type openvpn file file.ovpn` after finding this line online, however I get `Error: failed to load VPN plugin: unknown VPN plugin "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openvpn".` back after running it.
<axd-v>caffe`: is there some other way people utilize VPNs on guixsd? I'm open to changing from networkmanager to something like connman as an alternative or others. I haven't really grokked the shephard for system services yet so haven't tried messing around with these daemons yet, but still plan to.
<caffe`>I don't know, I personally don't utilize them myself. Suggesting nmtui was just sort of a shot in the dark.
<pkill9>anyone know what package 'libgcc_s.so.1' belong to? i tried gcc and gcc-toolchain but they don't create it it seems
