<elais>Has anyone experienced problems trying to set the correct time zone in gnome?
<elais>The gui ignores my settings and I'm wondering if there was a config file that sets the timezone separately from config.scm
<rekado>elais: I’m not very familiar with this, but I wonder if that’s because a writeable settings backend is missing at runtime.
<rekado>GNOME applications will fall back to a dummy settings backend when a writable backend cannot be started via D-Bus.
<rekado>this might be an instance of this behaviour.
<rekado>to diagnose this it might be useful to see what the application prints when it is run in a terminal.
<rekado>when I try to change the time or timezone I see this in the terminal: Could not set system timezone: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.timedate1 was not provided by any .service files
<rekado>looks like we need to add a package providing org.freedesktop.timedate1 and install it in a location that is searched for .service files.
<nckx>sneek: later tell noobly: Depends on whether your system is UEFI (target "/boot/efi") or not (target "/dev/sda") [this will overwrite your Gentoo GRUB and not detect other operating systems!] or (target #f) for no bootable GRUB (you can ‘configfile $guix_partition/boot/grub/grub.cfg’ from Gentoo's GRUB).
<rekado>of course I’d like to have an importer as well, but that’s much less important to me.
<jlicht>rekado: ah that clarifies a lot. That seems like a very boring job though...
<nellastro>hello everybody! Has anyone ever managed to extract an AppImage on GuixSD? It should unpack itself by invoking ./appimage --extract-image, but clearly the executable assumes the FHS so when I run the above command i get bash: ./appimage: no such file or directory. Any ideas? I thought to do this inside a FHS compliant container (that has /bin/sh an
<nellastro>d/or /bin/bash), but I have no clue about how to do that in GuixSD. Is this even feasable? Thanks a lot
<quiliro>minall: but it would be great to search the mailing list and report there what you did too...you did not report your success on you last mailing list post. please do...it will serve other users
<detran>hello, I'm trying to install guix in a qemu vm, and I've followed the manual to get it running. However, I don't understand how to launch the graphical installer. It wasn't present in the boot menu
