But the daemon runs as root, so setting NM_VPN_PLUGIN_DIR requires

not sufficient?

As you say, we do set NM_VPN_PLUGIN_DIR for our networkmanager
I was trying to have networkmanager vpn plugins simply work for Guix
System, which does not follow FHS. As such, there is no `/usr/lib` to
speak of, or any of the other default locations networkmanager looks

Put another way, do you know of a way to pass vpn plugin locations to
at runtime?


Hm. /usr/lib/NetworkManager/VPN is relevant to all the VPN plugins in
your system.

So, even if you don't use /usr/lib, then all plugins still need to
agree on one location where to place their .name files? Or how is this
supposed to work on Guix?

At that point, can you not patch NetworkManager source to look at the
right place? Possibly we could add a configure option to make that
