When you install GNOME on PC-BSD®, it installs both GNOME2 and GNOME3. GNOME2 will appear in the login menu as "GNOME Classic" and GNOME3 will be listed in the login menu as "GNOME".

NOTE: GNOME3 requires 3D acceleration. If your video driver does not support this, you should use GNOME2 instead.

GNOME3[1] is a popular desktop environment that provides many built-in utilities. Figure 6.5a shows a screenshot of GNOME3 on a PC-BSD® 10.0.2 system. To access the icons shown in this screen, click “Activities” then the 9-dot icon at the bottom of the left-hand panel. Alternately, if you know the name of an application to open, click "Activities" and type the application's name into the search bar.

If you are new to GNOME3, take some time to discover which applications best suit your needs. Some of the applications which are provided by GNOME3 include:

  • Evolution[6]: email client with address book and calendar.

Figure 6.5b shows a screenshot of GNOME2 on a PC-BSD® 10.0.2 system with the "Applications" menu open.
