Hi Nikos,

my apologies for the long delay.  You may have better luck on; is usually for bugs which can be
reproduced by others.

I don’t know what the problem is, but I suspect that trisquel is unhappy
with environment variables that Guix has set.  Guix defines variables
based on the contents of your profile at ~/.guix-profile/etc/profile.
In your shell initialization you probably load them; e.g. with this
snippet in ~/.bash_profile:

    source $GUIX_PROFILE/etc/profile

When you comment this Guix will not set any variables, so it has no way
of affecting your environment at all.  Can you log in after removing
these lines?  (You can evaluate these lines after logging in.)

If so, we should try to figure out which of these variables is
responsible.  Could you please show the contents of that etc/profile
file?  A common suspect is one of the XDG_* variables.

Hope that helps!
