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 AppCafe®.
The following desktops, when installed, will appear in the list of available desktops when a user logs in:
The rest of this chapter provides an overview of each of these desktops.
For the desktops that support desktop icons, three PC-BSD® icons will appear on the desktop:
AppCafe®: graphical utility used to install, uninstall, and upgrade software. See the section on AppCafe® for more details.
PC-BSD® Control Panel: contains applications for administering the computer. See the section on Control Panel for more details.
Even more desktops are available for installation from AppCafe®, if "Raw Packages" is checked in "Browser View". These can be browsed in the "X11 - Window Managers" category. Note that if the desktop is not listed above, it will not automatically be added to the login manager.
