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®.

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

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:

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.
