DESCRIPTIONThis program allows user to start a selected graphical user interface (GUI) from the command line prompt. Currently three different GUIs are supported: tcltk - Current Tcl/Tk based GUI aka the gis.m GIS Manager oldtcltk - Old Tcl/Tk based GUI aka the d.m Display Manager wxpython - New wxPython based GUI aka wxGUI If the -u update flag is given or the g.gisenv GRASS_GUI variable is missing, then the GRASS_GUI variable is permanently changed and the selected GUI will be used as the default UI from then on.
NOTESValid values for GRASS_GUI are text, tcltk, oldtcltk, and wxpython. g.gisenv variables are stored in the user's home directory in a hidden file called ".grassrc6". They are not shell environment variables and the "rc" file is not a classic UNIX run command file, it just contains persistent GRASS variables and is not executed.
