@potato_lisper I’m still looking for an example how to use Guix containers instead of docker. It doesn’t seem to be so simple as it sounds… but would be great to get rid of docker and use the same semantics for Guix and hosted services.

Tempting though camera seems to be the weakest part of this phone shop.fairphone.com/en/

@abcdw would that be better?

(simple-service 'extra-env-vars-service
`(("XDG_DATA_DIRS" . "$XDG_DATA_DIRS:$HOME/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share")))

@drh I’m not in the market for a new laptop but if I were I think I would be very tempted to checkout framework frame.work/ at this price point

@abcdw I was able to add this to the default profile:
(plain-file "bash-profile" "export XDG_DATA_DIRS=$XDG_DATA_DIRS:$HOME/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share")))

Which seems to work and the export is added to the generated .bash_profile
Is there a better way of doing this? 10x!

@abcdw hi there… making my first steps with Guix, was wondering if you could direct me to an explanation on how to get flatpak setup correctly. Specifically, where should I add its own shared directories to XDG_DATA_DIRS in a setup controlled by Guix home, so GNOME could find the app starters provided by flatpak when installing an app… thanks

Got my brand new , Guix installed following System Crafters’ guide. A little bit tricky, but everything is working just fine.

@iska the guide might not be I to date. Ie guix environment -> Guix shell etc. I’ve just installed GuixSD on anew one … must say it’s a bit awkward to go back in versions of gnome and having to build Firefox from scratch, but there are many other advantages of course.

@jdrm Estoy planeando pedir el minipc one también. Usaré exclusivamente Ethernet, así que no hay problema. ¿Qué distro usas? Estoy más preocupado por la tarjeta gráfica y el apoyo de los conductores ...

I love that doesn’t mess up , and it’s very polished.

We tried to communicate w/ #GitHub re: #Copilot; they have outright refused to answer community questions on Copilot & took it for-profit. Copilot ignores copyleft requirements; so it's time to #GiveUpGitHub GiveUpGitHub.org

Yep. It's right about time.


Personally, I already have started using @codeberg .
I'm hosting my latest pet project there and I'm going to move others out from GitHub and Gitlab as soon as I'll have the time to do it.

@atyh “I think Donald Trump is gross.” Trump is not “gross”. He is clear and present danger to the USA, and the world. Combined with violent Christian fundamentalism and conspiracy zealots from the right, lack of education and general ignorance about history, it’s a nightmare that came true.
