I had a problem with an i3wm keybinding which called a bash script which called a command (Rofi) installed with Guix.
I uninstalled rofi with Guix, installed it again with apt and it worked fine: :

my locale:

    export LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
    export LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
    export LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
    export LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
    export LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
    export LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
    export LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
    export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"

I uninstalled rofi with: `$ guix package -r rofi` then installed it using `$ sudo apt install rofi` and it's working just fine...

Apprently, installing with guix (`$ guix package -i rofi`) messes with `export LC_ALL=...` and the likes...

Thank you.

If any of you have an idea of why this happened, I would be happy to know since I'm trying to manage my packages with Guix
and hope that it will be of great help in the future.

Thank you.
