Dear Danny,

thanks! That lead me on the right track. In fact it's just

> sudo -E guix ...

without the Varibale name. "-E" passes the whole environment to
sudo. Now the package works (at least on my system) and the Logitech
presenter can be used under EXWM+xcompmgr under guix-system - Great! I
would be willing to provide the package description and maintain it if
that's helpful. Have to find out about the necessary steps then...
