(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Once you've installed PC-BSD, you'll 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:

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

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 as they may or may not appear 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 category at Freshports.
