Comment (by rbarnes):

 Just wanted to note that I am trying to figure out how to use GRASS for
 the first time today. And I want to use it from the command line.

 I am getting:

 ERROR: Unable to start GRASS. You can:
  - Launch GRASS with '-gui' switch (`grass70 -gui`)
  - Create manually GISRC file (/home/my_user/.grass7/rc)
  - Launch GRASS with path to the location/mapset as an argument (`grass70

 and, from this text, have absolutely no idea what to do. Searching the
 internet based on these phrases has brought me here.

 Creating an empty rc file yields nothing. Trying to point GRASS at a
 directory results in it telling me that said directory (seemingly no
 matter what it is) is an invalid GRASS location.
