The linter should be telling you something about the source file not
containing the package name. I'd take a look at the file-name bit in
other package sources that also use git-fetch.

The cache directory bit is a hint, as that's often within the users home
directory. The build environment uses a non-existent home directory, but
you can change that. Quite a few packages have (setenv "HOME" "/tmp")
for the tests. Adding that looks like:

(arguments
(list
#:phases
#~(modify-phases %standard-phases
(add-before 'check 'fix-home-directory
(lambda _
;; Tests fail with: Fontconfig error: No writable cache
;; directories
(setenv "HOME" "/tmp"))))))

If you do that though, the tests still fail, seems like there's a
missing font?

It avoids propagation of lilv and patches synthpod_ui to look for other
executables in a known location.

We should probably also wrap the scripts to set PATH to where “grep”,
“coreutils”, “sed”, and “gawk” are found, but I wasn’t able to add (gnu
packages gawk) to the imports of (gnu packages music).

Unfortunately, the program crashes because it can’t find the LV2 files
for Synthpod itself:

These probably should be looked up in $out/lib/synthpod/lv2 instead of

This is not the only package requiring such basic programs like "sed",
"grep" etc but not wrapped or listed in inputs. The other such package that
I am aware of is ardour, which also requires these programs. I tried
running ardour in a guix shell with --emulate-fhs, then found that ardour
could not start because these programs were not found in the PATH. So I am
not sure if it is required to add these programs to inputs or to wrap them.

I fixed it partially. The binaries are confusing. `synthpod_ui` seems like
not to be run manually. The way that I found to run the ui is
`synthpod_alsa -g` or `synthpod_jack -g`.

Strangely, with the attatched new v3 patch, the program starts only if
installed to guix profile (or maybe something else like guix home, not
tested). Just by building, the program searches for "manifest.ttl" file
in the current working directory and fails to start.

To me this means that we should also fix ardour, not that we should
ignore the problem in other packages :)
