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
