Hello,

Is there anything related to file and directory permissions to be set on foreign distrubution for guix home to work?

I know that feature is still pretty young and some parts are still in dev, yet I have tried it on my fedora 34 system and got the following error, which could be related to permission and file ownership:

Some system related information:

hint: Consider installing the `glibc-locales' package and defining `GUIX_LOCPATH', along these lines:

guix install glibc-locales
export GUIX_LOCPATH="$HOME/.guix-profile/lib/locale"

See the "Application Setup" section in the manual, for more info.

This should be a file-like object, e.g. plain-file same as in the test-config.

No special permissions are needed for guix home to work. I'm using it on
a foregin distro and it works (still have some minor papercuts but
unrelated to this).

I think this is an issue due to the api changed for the
home-bash-service-type and the docs hasn't been updated. See this email
thread [0]. Try changing:

(bash-profile (list "export HISTFILE=$HOME/.bash_history"))

to

(bash-profile (list (plain-file "bash_profile" "export HISTFILE=$HOME/.bash_history")))

I hope that helps.

The documentation says otherwise. according to it, it can be a list of strings or gexps for setting environment variables.

Yes it was.  But now it's already fixed in ff20d392.

My documentation still seems to be out of date after running guix pull and guix system reconfigure. I opened the doc with info guix. Am I missing a step?
