 > Thanks. But I'm not sure how someone new to GRASS is supposed to know
 the foregoing. Perhaps by searching they will find this info here.

 Sure, the idea is to improve the message. Now (r68795) it reads:

 ERROR: Unable to start GRASS GIS. You have the choice to:
  - Launch the GRASS GIS interface with the '-gui' switch (`grass73 -gui`)
  - Launch GRASS GIS directly with path to the location/mapset as an
 argument (`grass73 /path/to/location/mapset`)
  - Create manually the GISRC file (/home/user/.grass7/rc)
 See also: https://grass.osgeo.org/grass73/manuals/helptext.html

 (manual page URL added).

 Any missing text from comment:16 should be added to that manual page.

 If this modified error message is ok, I'll backport it. Otherwise please
 suggest rephrasing.
