M-x guix-all-services

Display all available services.

M-x guix-default-services

Display services from %base-services (see Base Services in The GNU Guix Reference Manual) or %desktop-services (see Desktop Services in The GNU Guix Reference Manual). You will be prompted in the minibuffer for the variable name (completions available).

M-x guix-services-by-name

Display service(s) with the specified name.

M-x guix-services-by-regexp
