The PC-BSD Display Manager (PCDM) is a new, BSD-licensed graphical login utility. In PC-BSD® 9.2, it will replace the GDM login utility. It will be added to a future rolling release to allow testing before the release of PC-BSD® 9.2.

Features

PCDM provides the following features:

  • provides PAM session/authentication using the login PAM module
  • supports remote login with XDMCP (needs additional testing)
  • provides an easy-to-use desktop environment selector
  • provides language and locale selectors during login
  • includes a keyboard layout selector
  • includes a virtual Keyboard (using xvkbd)
  • can be used to shutdown or restart the computer

Getting PCDM

If you would like to help test PCDM before it is available in a rolling release, you can build it on your current 9.x PC-BSD® system using the following instructions.
