FWIW I have the following in my ~/.bash_profile.  If you search the
email list archives for these environment variables, you'll find some

# Enable GTK+2 and GTK+3 programs to simultaneously use the right
# immodules cache file.  This is a Guix-specific work-around.

If it still doesn't work for you, I'll be happy to help troubleshoot.
I set this up years ago, and the one thing I remember is that it was a
