Guix protip!

Sometimes you have packages that you don't use very often. You don't need them upgraded and installed every time you upgrade your system or user packages.

You can do:

guix environment --ad-hoc package -- program-to-launch

For example, I just did:

guix environment --ad-hoc krita -- krita

If you start to use a program more often, then you can decide to add it to your user/system profile!


That's currently the case with me and Krita... and maybe it'll become something I feel justified in having always around (I'd like that, actually... need more time to get comfortable in it)
