Dear all,

I use SDDM with (display-server "wayland"), and Sway as my main 
window manager.

My current configuration files are here:
- system configuration: 
  https://gitlab.com/wehlutyk/guix-config/-/blob/master/config.scm
- main profile: 
  https://gitlab.com/wehlutyk/guix-config/-/blob/master/sl-manifest.scm
- dot files: https://gitlab.com/wehlutyk/dotfiles

I've been struggling to get the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS variable 
to be set by SDDM, as it does not seem to set it by default. The 
current script that SDDM runs before starting Sway is 
https://github.com/sddm/sddm/blob/master/data/scripts/wayland-session 
, and I haven't found any other setup step which might be a source 
for enviroment variables inside Sway.

(Somehow environment variables set in 
`.config/environment.d/*.conf` also get set, but I don't know how 
or where that happens.)

In the default configuration, DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS is 
therefore not set inside Sway, which leads to a number of problems 
(e.g. nautilus can't read the Trash system).

One can set the value of DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS produced by 
`dbus-launch --sh-syntax` in `.profile` ( 
https://gitlab.com/wehlutyk/dotfiles/-/blob/master/.profile#L9 ), 
which is then sourced by `wayland-session` if the shell is bash. 
In my case my shell is fish, and the way `wayland-session` calls 
fish doesn't make it export the variables exported by `.profile`. 
For that a small patch to `wayland-session` works, which I ended 
up using: 
https://gitlab.com/wehlutyk/guix-config/-/commit/5105ab1bea7f8233de5dffc053f794ae69822acd

With the two changes above (setting DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS in 
.profile, and patching wayland-session), apps can connect to dbus 
inside Sway. But this seems extremely hacky. Is there maybe a 
better way to make sure SDDM+Sway(+fish) is set up properly as a 
desktop enviroment? Is it time to make a 
`sway-desktop-service-type`?

Happy hacking,
Sébastien

I'm all game for the above.  ^  I've been working on that for a while
now.  I've work coding on said problem on my video channel here:

https://video.hardlimit.com/my-library/video-playlists/06baf279-76ea-406a-a24d-2fcfefecbf35

I'll tag the below code.  It's the basic define-record-type* that people
may find useful in generating the sway config file.

I'm taking a break from writing the sway service, because I couldn't
figure out how to get the darn service to start.  So now I'm working on
and endlessh service.  (I actually posted a patch here:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-patches/2021-03/msg00672.html)

Here is my current sway-service.scm code:
