Maybe you could make the guix daemon socket only available to root. For
this see the parameter --listen=endpoint of guix daemon
https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Invoking-guix_002ddaemon.html

I never did something like that, so I can't be sure it will work. I
still hope it helps you.

Hi,

Is there any way to disable the use of the Guix package manager for
users other than root on a Guix System? I'm interested in creating a
public server (in the manner of tilde.club), and the limitations of such
a thing push me to not allow every user to install whatever they
want. I'd like to have only the packages specified in the system config
available for everyone.

Cheers,
Sergiu

Thank you so much for your advice! Setting the permissions for the
daemon socket such that only root can read and write to it has solved my
problem.

Cheers,
Sergiu
