Hello Guix!

I've just noticed that the accessibility buttons at the top right of the
screen, e.g. "High Contrast" don't stick in the enable position, and do
seem to do anything. Both in 40.1 and the 42.0 I'm about to update to.

Thanks,

Maxim

Hi Maxim,

I think the issue is that the accessibility bus is not, uh, accessible.
In particular, the following line appears in GDM's greeter log:

(gnome-shell:767): dbind-WARNING **: 20:29:48.718: AT-SPI: Error
retrieving accessibility bus address:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was
not provided by any .service files

Note that the service itself is provided by at-spi2-core. Perhaps we
should wire things up in gdm-service-type?

Cheers
