Hey !

I am facing annoying issue with software installed with on foreign distro ( 20.04 here)

Does anyone knows how to fix this ? (screenshots of and )

@jeko

This happened to me before, but I don't remember how I got things working right.

It could be a locale issue (If you have glibc-utf8-locales installed, is GUIX_LOCPATH set? Maybe even try *unsetting* it if it is.)
Do you have any fonts installed via Guix? Maybe Guix doesn't honour system fonts properly.

@MutoShack Unsetting GUIX_LOCPATH didn't change anything.
I have only one font installed via Guix with nototools package.

@jeko

Man, that's all I got for now. Sorry.

@ me if your situation changes and I'll let you know if I can remember anything!

@MutoShack Haha thank you for your help anyway.
I will do it, it's not an option 💪

@jeko

I've seen this before but I DON'T REMEMBER WHICH PACKAGE YOU SHOULD INSTALL

(sorry for capital letters, it just slipped)

@AbbieNormal @ekaitz_zarraga
@MutoShack

I found the package ! I followed the link provided by @civodul in your thread, AbbieNormal, to the Guix documentation and I installed these three fonts : gs-fonts, font-dejavu, and font-gnu-freefont-ttf (dunno which is the one I do need...)
Emacs is shiny again.
Thank all of you very much for your help. ❤️

@jeko Guix should use stuff from Guix so installing some GTK themes and fonts should fix the issue with missing icons/glyphs.

Generally stuff on the intersection between Guix and non‑Guix is complicated and complex (aka desktop) apps are common offenders.

There are solutions to the issue but they have unpleasant trade‑offs.
