That warning should not be a problem.

If you end up having locale issues while using the software that you've
installed with Guix, you'll need to point the environment variable
GUIX_LOCPATH at a locale package installed by Guix [0], as shown in
2.6 Application Setup [1].

So, I set that variable in the file that configures my login shell (not
my interactive shell). For Bash [2], this could be ~/.profile. For Zsh,
this could be ~/.zprofile [3].

And, since you are configuring login shells, it won't take effect until
you open a new login shell, as with `bash -l` or by logging out and back

I hope that helps!

By the way, it's also a good idea to source the file
~/.guix-profile/etc/profile in your login shell. It sets some useful

I don't know whether or not you could use the locales provided by your
host distro.
