Hi,
Currently gnome-tweak-tool and gnome-control-center doesn't have gnome-shellas input (in gnome.scm package definition). This results in issues when somenew package with gsettings schemas is installed.
without access to gnome-shell schemas, gnome-tweak-tool won't ever work, soit is mandatory. And for the case of gnome-control-center, the keyboard panelsegfaults if gnome-shell schema isn't present. But since gnome-shell may notbe used by all g-c-c user, it may not be good to have a hard dependency ongnome-shell, but if installed, the schemas of gnome-shell should too be addedas input (is it possible to do so?)
How to reproduce (hopefully gnome-shell is being used):0. Install gnome-control-center and gnome-tweak-tool.1. install some gnome application (eg: guix package -i gnome-calculator) It doesn't matter if you have already installed the package2. run gnome-tweak-tool or run gnome-control-center and click Keyboard

I suppose the problem doesn’t manifest when using‘gnome-desktop-service’, because XDG_DATA_DIRS & co. are set such thatthe gnome-shell schemas are found.
I would think that’s enough in practice, no? I doubt these are usedoutside of a pure GNOME setting.
Also, gnome-shell depends on gnome-control-center, sognome-control-center cannot depend on gnome-shell.
Thanks,Ludo’.
