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

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

NOTES
       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  con-
       tains persistent	GRASS variables.

EXAMPLES
       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 GUI:
       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
