Dear Guixters !

Hope you are well and safe.

On my fresh Guix System, I created a profile using a manifest (mostly
to install Emacs and Qemu).
Then I tried to activate the profile during startup through .profile
file… and nothing happend. My exported variables are not even part of
the environment.
I tried to activate it through the .bashrc then I was able to launch
apps using command line but Gnome doesn't see them.

How should I activate my custom profile ?

$ cat .profile
GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES=$HOME/.guix-extra-profiles
export GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES
GUIX_PROFILE="${GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES}/jeko"
. "$GUIX_PROFILE/etc/profile"
XDG_DATA_DIRS="${XDG_DATA_DIRS}:${GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES}/jeko/share"

$ guix package --search-paths -p "$HOME/.guix-extra-profiles/jeko"
export PATH="/home/jeko/.guix-extra-profiles/jeko/bin:/home/jeko/.guix-
extra-profiles/jeko/sbin"
export EMACSLOADPATH="/home/jeko/.guix-extra-
profiles/jeko/share/emacs/site-lisp:/home/jeko/.guix-extra-
profiles/jeko/share/emacs/27.1/lisp"
export INFOPATH="/home/jeko/.guix-extra-profiles/jeko/share/info"
export GUILE_LOAD_PATH="/home/jeko/.guix-extra-
profiles/jeko/share/guile/site/3.0"
export GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH="/home/jeko/.guix-extra-
profiles/jeko/lib/guile/3.0/site-ccache:/home/jeko/.guix-extra-
profiles/jeko/share/guile/site/3.0"
export MANPATH="/home/jeko/.guix-extra-profiles/jeko/share/man"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/home/jeko/.guix-extra-
profiles/jeko/lib/pkgconfig"

$ cat guix-jeko-manifests/jeko-manifest.scm 
(specifications->manifest
 '(
   ;; Blog

Hi Jérémy!

> export GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES
> GUIX_PROFILE="${GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES}/jeko"

Are you sure it's ${GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES}/jeko and not ${GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES}/jeko/jeko?

> . "$GUIX_PROFILE/etc/profile"
> XDG_DATA_DIRS="${XDG_DATA_DIRS}:${GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES}/jeko/share"

Can you try the above GUIX_PROFILE setting and sourcing in a shell and
see if `env' shows any change?

Cheers!

Hello Pierre !

I am sure it's ${GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES}/jeko

$ ls $HOME/.guix-extra-profiles/jeko
bin/  etc/  include/  lib/  libexec/  manifest  sbin  share/  var

I can source my .profile from command line, giving me access to
GUIX_EXTRA_PROFILES for example. But Gnome won't update XDG_DATA_DIRS
that way. I don't understand why it does not source it at login.

Jérémy

But are you sure you are exporting XDG_DATA_DIRS?

For what it's worth, I export that variable for GNOME to find the applications I install with Flatpak, and it works. I don't use .profile though, I use .bash_profile for that and to start the shepherd for user-level services when I log in to the desktop.
