(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Once you've installed PC-BSD, you'll want to become familiar with your desktop environment. This section discusses the following desktops which can be selected during the installation of PC-BSD.

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

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

Konqueror2.png PC-BSD Website: provides a shortcut to pcbsd.org.

Jail.png Ports Jail: used by advanced users to install FreeBSD ports or packages. See the section on Using Ports Jail for more details.

Software.png Software Manager: used to install, uninstall, and upgrade PBIs. See the section on Using Software Manager for more details.

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 category at Freshports.
