It compiles kernel too, while I just want to add LXDE.
The manual contains lot of guix features but just a few words about `guix 
system reconfigure`. I think there could be options for speed up this process, 
such as just add service without compilation of that you had before.
`guix pull ` takes not much time with my "clean" config. I cannot use (packages 
(cons* lxde)) and other additions to config.scm until I know how configure DE 
without recompile everything. I would better try install manually.
I understand now that developer has described all guix features one by one, but 
has not presented it by system approach. Luckily I have found this . But where find powerful
