Description

It would be nice if the wxGUI could dump a friendly little message to the console telling the user how to restart it. I for one keep forgetting the right command name ...

This would require people to read information first, then use the software, then recall what they memorized. Not very likely in many scenarios ;-) At least in my case, wxPython also dumps a lot of error/warning messages on the console, pretty much right after startup, so I never really get to see this helpful note.

Replying to benducke:

I think current message

Start the GUI with:                      g.gui [____]

is sufficient.

I'd be inclined to close this as 'wontfix'
