package less:
$ less --helphead: cannot open ‘@/less/help/file/@’ for reading: No such file ordirectoryError: no lexer for alias '@/less/help/file/@' found
then it does show the help.
I am on foreign distro, but environment is Guix packaging based.
Further, if less is used as pager in postgresql:
\d imapaccountsless: error while loading shared libraries: libtinfo.so.5: cannot openshared object file: No such file or directory
I can see that less which is important package, in Debian, depends onfollowing:
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14), libtinfo5, debianutils (>= 1.8)
But I cannot find libtinfo in GuixSD. This should be included.

I tried in a pristine environment like this:
guix environment --container --ad-hoc less -- /bin/sh -c 'TERM=xterm less --help'
This works well for me. Could you check on your system?
If this works, it probably means that something from the host system isinterfering.
Does ‘which less’ point to Guix’s less?
Thanks,Ludo’.

Hello,
Thank you.
I have tried that command, I cannot see anything.
Yes, my less is from GuixSD. I guess something was interferring fromalien system.
