Hello!

> Hope it will help, cheers,

Thank you Nicolas. I haven't had much time recently. Took a brief look
at your config. Seems pretty sophisticated for a noob like me :P

I'll check it out soon!

Importing and building NPM packages 2 months ago

From Demis Balbach to ~abcdw/rde-discuss

Hello,

in the last couple of days I've dug into the possibilities of packaging
NPM packages in Guix. The situation itself is pretty dire, the node eco
system Guix has to offer by default is basically not existing with only
a handful of packages packaged in Guix.

A couple of days ago however I stumbled across this post on the Guix ML:
https://www.mail-archive.com/guix-devel@gnu.org/msg48964.html

This was a WIP npm importer for Guix which made it possible to
recursively import and build (with a "dummy" build-system that just
executes 'npm install') a package and all of its dependencies.

Hello,

when trying to execute swappy via $mod+alt+print, nothing happens. If I
try to launch `sway-swappy-clipboard` manually, I get this error:

Let me know if I need to provide anything else.

Error while reconfigure: No code for module 3 months ago

From Demis Balbach to ~abcdw/rde-discuss

Hello,

I've recently rewritten my config in an attempt to simpliy it,
unfortunately, I'm currently unable to reconfigure my system. You can
find the code here:
https://github.com/minikN/guix/tree/baeda17afc78be0a24bf769ed95e6c641df2d5fd

Normally, I should be able to run `make hr` in the root of the repo. It
errors out with `no code for module (config geekcave)`. So I run this
command to find the error in geekcave.scm:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
GUILE_LOAD_PATH=./:../rde guix build -f geekcave.scm

Re: [BUG] browse-url not working in emacsclient 3 months ago

From Demis Balbach to ~abcdw/rde-devel

Hello. What am I doing wrong if this still isn't working?
Using notmuch for email.. I click on a link, nothing happens.
I mark the link then do `M-x browse-url`, nothing happens.

I set chromium to default browser using xdg-settings. If I type
`xdg-open http://google.de` Chromium opens.

[BUG] feature-emacs breaks existing Ubuntu GNOME sessions 3 months ago

From Demis Balbach to ~abcdw/rde-devel

Hello,

after enabling feature-emacs, I can't login properly using the default
GNOME sessions. I get this error:

(for some reason I'm not allowed to add attachments to this mail, so
here is a link)
https://i.imgur.com/1BUknN1.jpeg

This is only a warning, but I think GNOME is not happy with it. I can
click "OK" and get logged in, but parts of the GUI get not loaded
properly like icons. I think it may stop initializing the environment
after the error gets thrown, not sure.

Hello,

`mbsync` has open feature requests dating back to 2012 O_O .. Well, we
have to at least try. I created the feature requests:

- mbsync: https://sourceforge.net/p/isync/feature-requests/17/

[BUG] feature-zsh breaks gnome wayland session 4 months ago

From Demis Balbach to ~abcdw/rde-devel

Hello,

On foreign distros (tested on Ubuntu 20.04) feature-zsh breaks already
existing wayland sessions (like "Ubuntu for Wayland").

More specifically, setting zsh as the default shell (#:default-shell?
#t) breaks it. It simply sets the `$SHELL` env var to zsh store path,
but on Ubuntu valid shells must be listed in `/etc/shells` (I don't know
about other distros tbh) and because it's not listed there, something
somewhere in the gnome wayland sessions breaks and sends the user right
back to GDM login screen after logging in.

This is problematic because we can't append to `/etc/shells` on foreign
distros because we have no permission to.
