[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 755 bytes --]

In a "headless" vm-image (sysi29.scm, attached), "font-dejavu" installed
by manifest (attached) into the "empty" default profile ...

'guix package -m manifest'

... appears in the emacs 'M-x menu-set-font' choice box. But it doesn't
appear with the same manifest installed in the "foo" profile ...

'guix package -p foo -m manifest'

... and run this way ...

source foo/etc/profile

emacs $@ --eval="(let ((guix-env \"foo\")) (when (and guix-env (require
(quote guix-emacs) nil t)) (guix-emacs-autoload-packages guix-env)))"

IIUC it shouldn't make a difference, but I also tried 'fc-cache -f'
before emacs to no effect.

Am I missing something?

TIA - George

To make fonts available from a non-standard profile I added the
following line into my "~/config/fontconfig/fonts.conf":

  <dir>~/path-to-my-profile/share/fonts</dir>

Thank you Alex!

On the chance it might be useful to someone else, this ...

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file to configure system font access -->
<fontconfig>
<dir>~/path-to-my-profile/share/fonts</dir>
</fontconfig>

... in "~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf" worked for me ;-)

Given that this works, ISTM this can be fixed by placing ...

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file to configure system font access -->
<fontconfig>
<dir>share/fonts</dir>
</fontconfig>

... in "/etc/fonts/fonts.conf".

WDYT? - George

Assuming you run Emacs in that foo profile and don't see the font,
that's probably because XDG_DATA_DIRS is unset in that other profile.
glib is one of the package setting that variable.

I'm merging this bug with 22138, which would fix the root cause.

Thanks,

Maxim

Will this be fixed by #50358?  If so, could you close this when that is
merged?

The above statement turned out to be untrue at the time; fontconfig used
to not honor XDG_DATA_DIRS.  That's now the case with the newest
fontconfig release, if XDG_DATA_DIRS is set (which probably won't -- due
to 22138), Emacs should be able to discover fonts in a different profile
than the user or system profiles.
