Hi,
A few days ago I mentioned an issue with a Scribus installed on a foreign distribution using Guix (https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-guix/2019-04/msg00249.html).I'm experiencing the same problem with Scribus and the GIMP in a GNU system installed in a real machine using the ISO installer (https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/guix/guix-system-install-1.0.0.x86_64-linux.iso.xz).
Scribus (these are from my Guix on foreign distro experience, but the problem in the GNU system is the same):

GIMP (these are taken from the GNU system):

The windows are clipped (extend beyond the screen limits), you can't resize them, and the icons look like zoomed-in bitmaps. The icon problem is minor, but the other problems make it really hard to use the applications as intended.

I cannot reproduce these issues using Guix System on commitaa7cdc57dc28673dedfc6ec210974aaa0099a419. The gimp and scribus programsdo not appear to render icons incorrectly, their windows are resizable,and their windows are not clipped.
Can you reproduce the issue in a VM? You can try with the "guix systemvm" command; you might need to slightly customize your OS config file.If you aren't sure how to do that, just let me know, and I'll try tohelp.

Thanks, Chris. I would need precise instruction on how to create a VM with the same characteristics you used, including an example config. My system config was pretty much created by the graphical installer.
By the way, every time I run GIMP from a terminal, I see these warning and error:
##########$ LANG=en_US.utf-8 gimp

And every time I run Scribus from a terminal, I see this:

Also, running:
$ strace -f -o gimp.out gimp $ strace -f -o scribus.out scribus
I see many lines containing messages of things that seem to fail. For instance, "No existe el fichero o el directorio", "Argumento inválido", among other messages (in English these would be something like "No such file or directory" and "Invalid argument", respectively).

What is the output of "guix describe"? This will tell me the exactversion you're using, so I can reproduce your environment moreaccurately.
Can you share with me your operating system configuration file? If youaren't comfortable sharing it publicly, you can email it privately tome. I can then help you come up with a version of the file that mightwork in a VM, so we can try to reproduce the issue.

I see similar messages when I launch gimp. I don't know what they mean,but I wouldn't be too concerned about them for now. Let's maybe returnto them after we've reproduced the issue in a VM, first.

I see the exact same error message, so I'm not sure it's a problem.
In short, I think if we can reproduce the issue in a VM, it will be mucheasier to debug.

After a Guix System reconfigure and upgrading packages, Scribus 1.5.5 and Pencil2D 0.6.4 work alright now (these are Qt-based applications). However, the problem persists in the GIMP 2.10.14.

I don't know what fixed the issue for Qt-based applications.

Today I found out that the issue may be related to GNOME only, because the GIMP in sway works normally but the problem persists when in GNOME.
