Hi,
I have installed guix v1.1.0 as a guest OS using virt-manager. In the
misc. services section of the manual
suggested to enable the spice-vdagent service. So, with help on irc chat
I added the two lines in my config.scm
(use-service modules ... spice)
(spice-vdagent-service) in the services list.

On rebooting with the newly configurated build, I'm able to use the
clipboard feature of spice, but the display does not scale on resizing
the window (I have checked the option - Autoresize VM with the window in
virt-manager).

Relevant Log:
localhost shepherd[1]: Service spice-vdagentd has been started.
localhost spice-vdagentd: GetSeats failed: The name
org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit was not provided by any .service files
localhost spice-vdagentd: (console-kit) seat: (null)
localhost spice-vdagentd: no session info, max 1 session agent allowed

Which desktop environment were you using? If it was Xfce, it's a known
bug [0], and there's not much we can do about. It should work fine out
of the box for GNOME.

Thank you,
