Hello! I wish to remove network-manager-applet extension from
profile-service-type 
which is in the list of extensions of
xfce-desktop-service-type [1] and [2]

And also I want to see the result.

I try it unsuccessfully like this:

$ guile
> (use-modules (gnu) (gnu services) (gnu services desktop) (srfi srfi-1))
> xfce-desktop-service-type
$1 = #<service-type xfce-desktop 7f6c0a4b1000>
> (remove (lambda (service) (eq? (service-kind service) profile-service-type)) xfce-desktop-service-type)
ice-9/boot-9.scm:1669:16: In procedure raise-exception:
In procedure remove: Wrong type argument in position 2: #<service-type xfce-desktop 7f6c0a4b1000>

Entering a new prompt. Type `,bt' for a backtrace or `,q' to continue.
Also I cannot remove service from %desktop-services asI usually do in config.scm:
> (remove (lambda (service) (member (service-kind service) (list network-manager-service-type bluetooth-service))) %desktop-services)
;;; <stdin>:19:57: warning: possibly unbound variable `network-manager-service-type'
ice-9/boot-9.scm:1669:16: In procedure raise-exception:
error: network-manager-service-type: unbound variable
Can you show me how ot interact with guile ? And how to remove service extensionsand also 
how to look at xfce-desktop-service-type contents?

 (remove (lambda (service) (eq? (service-kind service) profile-service-type)) %desktop-services)

"works for me."  Though you get a HUGE output.  I didn't check the
output to make sure it was removed.  Also just removing all
profile-service-type(s) might be a REALLY BAD idea.  I wouldn't know
exactly why it would be bad, but it might remove lots of system services.

So the problem with it not knowing that 'network-manager-service-type'
is a variable is because you have not included the file that specifies
that network-manager-service-type is a variable.  So how do we discover
what file has network-manager-service-type defined as a variable?

$ guix system search network-manager
name: network-manager
location: gnu/services/networking.scm:1120:4
extends: shepherd-root dbus polkit account activate session-environment profile
shepherdnames: networking
description: Run NetworkManager (https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/NetworkManager), a network management daemon that aims to
+ simplify wired and wireless networking.
relevance: 15

You can see that it's located in gnu/services/networking.scm.  Where is
bluetooth defined?

$ guix system search bluetooth
name: bluetooth
location: gnu/services/desktop.scm:467:2
extends: dbus udev etc shepherd-root
shepherdnames: bluetooth
description: Run the `bluetoothd' daemon, which manages all the Bluetooth devices and provides a number of D-Bus interfaces.
relevance: 19

Ahh.  gnu/services/desktop.scm.

so

$ guile
scheme@(guile-user) > ,use(gnu services networking)
scheme@(guile-user) > ,use(gnu services desktop)
scheme@(guile-user) > (remove (lambda (service) (member (service-kind service) (list network-manager-service-type bluetooth-service))) %desktop-services)

Best of luck!

Hello, Joshua!
I see your code is elegant and represents solution of a task:
remove 'network-manager-service-type' from %desktop-services variable

I've already got this solution here in Guix-help and I use it 
in every config.scm example placed to my git:
https://gitgud.io/znavko/guix-configs

Now I faced to another interestng task:
1. I use %desktop-services that declares 'network-manager-applet' 
as extension of 'profile-service-type' here [1]
2. I use 'xfce-desktop-service-type' that has 'profile-service-type'
as an extension [2]
3. I cannot just simply remove 'profile-service-type' because it is 
really important [3]
4. I need to remove 'network-manager-applet' from the extensions list
in 'profile-service-type' declared here [4]

You gave me and idea to work with variables.
I could just redefine some variable, for example copy 
desctop.scm to my local machine and include it to my config
and code it without those lines that include 'network-manager-applet'.
But I see this approach is not elegant, as Russians say 'a dog-nail'.

I seek elegant academical solution, as programmers say 'linux-way'.

I alwasy ask here and got solutions, but here I started to read
Lisp manual, then I will read Scheme manual, then Guile manual
and then Guix manual and Guix repository to discover that only 
funcion-antidote for this peace of code [4]:

(define %desktop-services
  ;; List of services typically useful for a "desktop" use case.
  (cons*
...
      (simple-service 'network-manager-applet
          profile-service-type
          (list network-manager-applet))))


Do you know some Guix function for remove extension?
If you have a snippet for remove extension from service it
will be very exact I want.

I don't really know of the elegant way to do what you want.  :(  I
currently am running nm-applet, but sway doesn't officially support it.
I don't know how to elegantly remove it from my config either.  :(

Best of luck!
