I'm wondering what the right way is to package Qt plugins in Guix.
Specifically, I'd like to use Lightly: https://github.com/Luwx/Lightly
While I've managed to build it (see my package definition at the end
of this email), I can't seem to get Qt applications to actually use
Lightly as a style plugin.
For example, nheko (which is packaged in (gnu packages messaging)):
$ QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=lightly nheko
QApplication: invalid style override 'lightly' passed, ignoring it.
Available styles: Windows, Fusion
If I `cat $(which nheko)', it turns out to be a shell script
containing a line like the following:
...which does not contain a path to Lightly, even though it is
installed in the same Guix profile as nheko.
What do I need to do to make installed Qt applications like nheko
"see" the Lightly Qt plugin?
P.S.: Here's my full package definition for Lightly:
(commit (string-append "v" version))))
(file-name (git-file-name name version))
(sha256 (base32 "0qkjzgjplgwczhk6959iah4ilvazpprv7yb809jy75kkp1jw8mwk"))))
(build-system qt-build-system) ; cmake-build-system should be fine too
(list extra-cmake-modules qtbase-5 qtdeclarative-5 qtx11extras
kconfigwidgets kcoreaddons kdecoration kguiaddons
ki18n kiconthemes kwindowsystem
kde-frameworkintegration ; optional; Required to use KStyle convenience functionalities in style
kcmutils ; optional; Required for lightly-settings5 application to build
kwayland ; optional
pkg-config)) ; optional

to be visually modern and minimalistic.")
