<kmicu>On the other hand not all code is copyrightable. There isn’t much creativity in recipes.
<nckx>kmicu: Depends on the package.
<kmicu>(And this is why importers work almost in an automatic way.)
<kmicu>nckx: It would be difficult to prove in court that packaging some complex software required substantial creativity.
<nckx>Now that I can believe.

<lfam>Do we have a package that can edit PDFs?
<lfam>Ah, evince :)
<apteryx>lfam: I use xournal
<apteryx>(for those PDF which are not forms but image-like -- for forms Evince work better)
<apteryx>lfam: for a more graphic oriented hack, you could also rasterize the PDF by importing it in Gimp.
<apteryx>there's also Inkscape... lots of choice :)
<lfam>I'm gonna be filling out some forms — thanks for the detailed info :)
<lsl88>hi! I'm facing this issue. Even I have set the export in my .bashrc, from time to time, when I run for instance guix package - i PACKAGE, my bash shows this output substitute: guix package -i glibc-utf8-locales
<lsl88>substitute: export GUIX_LOCPATH="$HOME/.guix-profile/lib/locale" and then goes on executing
<lsl88>if I run but if I run guix package - I, then the package I chose was installed. I don't know why this happens. And the output of guix package -I shows both glibc-locales and glibc-utf8-locales
<ng0>you have to source the .guix-profile/etc/profile or do something equivalent compatible with your shell
<ng0>or just automate this one export which is mentioned:
<ng0>export GUIX_LOCPATH="$HOME/.guix-profile/lib/locale"
<ng0>this is within the file i pointed to
<bananad>Hello, I found that guix's default skeletons put "source /etc/profile" into .zlogin, but according to .zlogin is sourced after .zshrc and should not be used for alias definitions, options, environment variable settings, etc. Especially "as a general rule, it should not change the shell environment at all". I think it's better to source /etc/profile from .zprofile.

<atw>Thanks to everyone who worked on packaging the new icecat!
<partj>how does one go about setting up fuse on guixsd? the fuse group doesn't exist by default, so i'm not really sure of what i should do
<Laalf>how would i add a file in an /etc/ subfolder?
<roptat>Laalf: you can add files as usual
<roptat>what are you trying to do?
<Laalf>roptat: i am trying to create the file /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf
<roptat>I don't know if libvirt will try to read it...
<Laalf>roptat: it should by default
<roptat>we have a service that should allow you to write your own configuration
<Laalf>roptat: how would that be called?
<roptat>ah, here:
<roptat>libvirt-service-type then
<partj>anyone know anything about fuse? still trying to set it up for sshfs
<roptat>and don't forget virtlog-service-type
<roptat>partj: sorry, no idea :/
<roptat>is fuse a daemon or something else?
<Laalf>roptat: that does not allow me to create that file as far as i am concerned
<partj>fuse is a kernel module that lets you mount fses in userspace
<partj>the thing is the kernel module itself is already here, but it's still not letting me use it
<roptat>Laalf: ah, so you can try adding the file manually or you can use extra-special-file (I think)
<roptat>partj: in the file-system section of the manual, I see %fuse-control-file-system, but I'm not sure if that'll help you
<roptat>I think you should add it to your (file-systems ...) list
<Laalf>roptat: extra-special-file shouldnt work because /etc/libvirt alredy exists, right?
<roptat>Laalf: I don't know
<marusich>Hello, Guix!
<atw>hey marusich!
<pkill9>so does guix now store ~/.config/guix/current-* in /var/guix/profiles/per-user/$USER/current-guix ?
