Emacs, distro with guix as package manager and guix.d

The documentation claims that emacs installed by guix "knows" where the site 
packages, including the guix.d installed packages are found. But, this seems 
not to be the case, at least for one of my setups.

I have multiple profiles, one of them reserved for emacs. Among the packages in 
that profile, there is only a single one in site-lisp/guix.d . This is the 
*ess* package. This is also a single package that does not load properly.

The EMACSLOADPATH variable contains .../share/emacs/site-lisp and 
.../share/emacs/26.3/lisp paths, where ... is the profile path. I do not see 
any mention of guix.d there, but then, maybe it is not supposed to be there.

On another computer, also with hybrid distro, I have exactly the same profile 
setup, but ess works. The EMACSLOADPATH seems to have been built up in an 
analogous fashion, again no mention of guix.d.

Does anyone have any hints as to why ess might not get properly loaded, or what 
should I look for? The only difference I can currently think of is that in the 
former case (the setup that does not work), I start emacs from the command 
line, and in the latter as a deamon, so there might be something wrong with the 



PS Great talks last Sunday ;-). Sorry I did not say hello to more of you, but 
had to catch the train back home.
