       g.gui  - Launches a GRASS graphical user interface (GUI) session.
       Optionally updates default user interface settings.


       general, GUI, user interface


       g.gui --help
       g.gui   [-fdn]   [ui=string]    [workspace=name.gxw]    [--help]   [--verbose]   [--quiet]

           Start GUI in the foreground
           By default the GUI starts in the background and control is immediately returned to the
           caller. When GUI runs in foregreound, it blocks the command line

           Update default user interface settings

           Do not launch GUI after updating the default user interface settings

           Print usage summary

           Verbose module output

           Quiet module output

           Force launching GUI dialog

           User interface
           Options: wxpython, text, gtext
           Default: wxpython
           wxpython: wxPython based GUI (wxGUI)
           text: command line interface only
           gtext: command line interface with GUI startup screen

           Name of workspace file to load on start-up
           This is valid only for wxGUI (wxpython)


       The  g.gui module allows user to start the Graphical User Interface (GUI) from the command
       line prompt or to change the default User Interface (UI) settings.

       GRASS GIS 7 comes with both a wxPython-based GUI aka wxGUI (ui=wxpython) and command  line
       text-based UI (ui=text).


       If  the -d update flag is given or the GRASS_GUI environmental variable is unset, then the
       GRASS internal variable GUI is permanently changed and the selected ui will be used as the
       default UI from then on.

       All  GRASS  internal variables (see g.gisenv) are stored in the user’s home directory in a
       hidden   file   called   $HOME/.grass7/rc   on   Unix-based    operating    systems    and
       %APPDATA%\GRASS7\rc  on  MS  Windows. Note that these GRASS internal variables are not the
       shell environment variables and the rc file is not a classic UNIX  run  command  file,  it
       just contains persistent GRASS variables.

       The  old gis.m and d.m Tcl/Tk-based GUIs known from GRASS GIS 6 have been dropped in GRASS
       GIS 7.


       Set default user interface setting to command line, text-based UI:
       g.gui -d ui=text

       Set default user interface setting to the graphical user interface (GUI)  and  launch  the
       g.gui -d ui=wxpython

       Set default user interface setting to the graphical user interface (GUI) but do not launch
       the GUI:
       g.gui -dn ui=wxpython
