Hello everyone, looking forward to Guix content

Hi everyone,
Happy to be part of System Crafters and hope to see more video about Guix for beginners but videos that go deeper than the ones already on the Youtube channel. I appreciate it, System Crafters! :wink:


I’m looking forward to it too! I’m thinking about a series about Guix Home and putting together a Sway desktop configuration.


Sounds like a great idea. I use guix as my productive system on most of my machines.
The last non-guix box hosts my gitlab. Guix-forge will replace this in the near future.

I am using Guix as a home user for about a year now and I dig into it from time to time but I feel like I still miss some foundational knowledge about the system, how to configure different things and unfortunately, the manual is not that beginner friendly…

Guix Home is an area that sorely needs more content, but the good news is that I’ve got a head start on that by giving talks on Guix Home at a couple different events.

Here’s the more recent one from FOSDEM 2023:


Yeah guix home isn’t always easy to get started with. I’ve had to look at some of the code a couple of times to understand how certain things work. It’s also a relatively new feature of Guix, so I’m sure it still needs a lot of attention in a few areas.

Is there anything specific that’s bugging you? Or is it more a general “I like it, but I’m not sure what I’m getting out of it” issue? I’m sure this forum would be a great place to ask for help with specific issues :slight_smile:
