A GroupWise tip!

Not my ususal area, but it's something I use in my SLED10 configuration and wanted to pass on. This tip will speed up the GroupWise Linux Client by switching it over to GTK. Give it a shot and see what you think.


From the SLED10 console do the following:

SU {enter admin password}

cd /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin

vi groupwise


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

so that it says

add -ui=gtk to the end before the start of the " at the end of the /opt/novell/groupwise/client/bin/groupwise-bin -ui=gtk "$@"

exit from the file

Groupwise will now run from the menus in GTK mode.

Normal disclaimers here: I can't support this, but it works fine for my workstation

  • Good tip Lawrence. I also reference this tip as well as an updated look at the new version of the Linux client in my blog. One thing about switching over to the GTK L&F, it's not GTK2 so its still not quite what people want. In Bonsai, the next version of GroupWise, we will probably make GTK the default L&F and it will be GTK2. If we don't make GTK the default, we will certainly leave in the switch.
