Hi,
I'm using GuixSD v0.10.0 with GNOME. I've noticed that in GNOME, underthe "Sharing" settings, nothing of interest is displayed. There is onlya single text field, titled "Computer Name," which is blank. This seemswrong.
Is this expected?

I am not using Gnome but since 2016, a lot of new things appeared aboutGnome in the Guix land. Therefore, what is the status of this bugreport?

Hi simon,
The Sharing dialog now consists of two buttons, which at least changesome settings, along with the text field, that is still blank. Thatbeing said, I am far from able to assert, that this functions asintended; apparently, there should be more settings[1], and those thatwe do have don't seem to work either.
The currently available settings depend on gnome-user-share(1) andrygel(2). (1) should be accessible via dav://$HOSTNAME, where $HOSTNAME is thehost name you've configured in /etc/config.scm plus ".local" in mostcases. It seems to rely on apache or httpd; either way, starting itmanually doesn't work and changing the settings doesn't seem to doanything. Attempting to connect to this server (that isn't spawned)yields an "invalid argument" error.(2) can be started manually, but is not started automatically throughthe settings dialog. It seems like rygel actively listens to changeson $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/rygel.conf, however, which is where GNOME storesthose settings. In other words it would be possible to circumvent thisissue through a shepherd user service. To access the media, a UPnP-capable media player such as VLC or deviceis required. I fear we don't ship anything like that with our gnome-desktop-service.
On a related note, the tracker service, which is required by GNOMEMusic and optional for rygel seems to be missing and manually startingit while having tracker enabled in (2) leads to a trap instruction.
