This tool is a simple wrapper that help running Linux binaries on Guix because otherwise you can't easily execute a binary that doesn't come from the system itself.
This is inspired by the steam-run wrapper available on NixOS, which is not related to Steam because it's used to run any Linux binary.
You need to have to following packages installed to make it work:
gcc-objc++:lib gtk+ but this may depend on what you are running.
Then to use it, it's as easy as:
I tried a few programs to see if it was working fine.
