Once you have finished setting up your system, you will be presented with the login screen seen in Figure 4.8a:

Figure 4.8a: PC-BSD® Login Screen

Login1.jpeg

The Username that you created in the Create a User Screen will be listed (in this example, it is dru).

NOTE: while the GDM login manager will let you do it, logging in as the root user is STRONGLY DISCOURAGED. If you do login as root, you run the risk of overflowing the / filesystem and will be required to type in the full path of binaries. Instead, login as the user account that you created and input the administrative password whenever a task requires it. If you are working from the command line, you can use the pc-su or sudo commands which will prompt for the administrative password before performing a task that requires root permissions. PC-BSD® will have its own login manager in version 9.2 which will prevent users from logging in as the root user.

If you click the "Universal Access" button in the task bar (round icon with a stick figure), you can set the accessibility options shown in Figure 4.8b:

If you installed PC-BSD® on a laptop, the taskbar will also show the current battery charge level when you hover your mouse over the power icon. The taskbar includes a clock followed by a "Shutdown Options" icon. If you click that icon, you can choose to restart or shutdown the system.

If you highlight the username, some more options will be added to the left side of the taskbar as shown in Figure 4.8c:

These options allow you to select your language, keyboard layout, and desktop to use for the login session. Once you have made your selections, input the password associated with the selected user and press enter.

NOTE: if you just get the login prompt after typing the password, the password was incorrect. Double-check that caps lock is not on and try typing the password again.

If you wish to add or delete any desktops, use the "System Packages" tab of System Manager.

If you wish to enable auto-login, see the section on GDM Configuration.

Welcome & Getting Started

The first time you log in, the PC-BSD® "Getting Started" screen will load as seen in Figure 4.8d.

If you click the "Next" button, you can read an overview of the utilities that are used to configure your network connection, install applications, configure your system, make a backup, and keep the system updated, as well as how to get involved with the PC-BSD® community. Check the box “Don't show this greeting on next startup” if you do not want to see this screen the next time you log in. To re-open the screen after checking that box, type pc-welcome.
