How to speed-up and improve the GroupWise linux client appearance

When you want to improve the GroupWise linux client appearance, make a launcher icon and enter the following command:

/opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise -ui=gtk 

And now the java-look has been replaced by a (slightly better looking) GTK look!

This tip will speed up the GroupWise Linux Client by switching it over to GTK. Give it a shot and see what you think.

1. From the SLED10 console do the following:

SU {enter admin password}
cd /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin
vi groupwise

2. Modify this:

/opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin "$@" 

so that it says this:

/opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin -ui=gtk "$@"

3. Save changes and exit.

GroupWise will now run from the menus in GTK mode.
