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.

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.

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