GNOME3[1] is a popular desktop environment that provides many built-in utilities. Figure 6.9a shows a screenshot of GNOME3 on a PC-BSD® 10.0 system with the "Applications" menu open.

Each category in the "Applications" menu contains many applications and the "Settings" and "System" categories contain many utilities for configuring your system. 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:

  • Epiphany[3]: web browser found in Internet → Epiphany Web Browser.
  • Brasero[4]: CD/DVD burning software found in Multimedia → Brasero Disk Burner.
  • Totem[5]: movie player found in Multimedia → Videos.
  • Evolution[6]: email client with address book and calendar. Found in Office → Evolution Mail and Calendar.
  • Nautilus[7]: file manager found in Utilities → Files.
NOTE: Some games, such as Lights Off, Quadrapassel, and Swell Foop, require 3D acceleration. If your video driver does not support this, you will not be able to launch those games.

You can find additional themes and wallpapers at gnome-look.org[8].
