(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Once you have installed PC-BSD®, you will want to become familiar with your desktop environment. This section discusses the desktops which can be selected during the installation of PC-BSD® or installed afterwards using System Manager.

NOTE: Fluxbox is always installed and available in the login menu of a PC-BSD® system.

These desktops are fully supported, meaning that all of the PC-BSD® utilities are integrated into the desktop environment:

By default, three PC-BSD® icons will appear on these desktops:

Appcafelogo1.png AppCafe®: graphical utility used to install, uninstall, and upgrade software. See the section on Using AppCafe® for more details.

Controlpanellogo.png PC-BSD® Control Panel: contains applications for administering the computer. See the section on Control Panel for more details.

Acrobat.png PC-BSD® Handbook: a PDF version of the PC-BSD® 9.1 Users Handbook (this document).

The following desktops are called "unsupported" in the PC-BSD® installer as they are meant for more advanced users who are comfortable working at the command line. The PC-BSD® utilities will work in these environments, but the user may need to start some utilities manually from the command line if they do not appear as an icon on the desktop or in the desktop's application menu:

Advanced users can also install other desktops using the FreeBSD ports and packages collection. You can browse the 180+ available desktops in the x11-wm[1] category at Freshports.

The rest of this section provides an overview of each of the desktops that can be installed with PC-BSD®.
