(Sorry for the inconvenience)

The Desktop selection screen, shown in Figure 3.3a, allows you to select the system components and window managers to install with PC-BSD. After installation, you can still install or uninstall additional components using Control Panel ➜ System Manager ➜ System Packages.

Use the arrow buttons to browse through the primary window managers. Each selection contains a short description. You can also select to install a FreeBSD server instead of a PC-BSD desktop.

If you click the Customize button, you can choose from additional components using the screen shown in Figure 3.3b.

The following components are available for installation. If you right-click a component and select View Packages, a pop-up menu will list the packages that are installed with that component.

  • Base-I18N: input methods (ibus), fonts, and codecs to support Japanese, Korean, and Chinese users.
  • Desktops: includes the following supported desktops: GNOME2, KDE4, LXDE, and XFCE4. If you expand the + next to a desktop, you can select which components to install with that desktop. You can select as many desktops and components as you wish to install.
  • Development: software utilities suited for developers. These include the valgrind debugging tool, QT development tools, CMake, GNU make, Subversion, and git.
  • Hardware-Drivers: if you expand the + you can select which drivers to install: HPLIP (for HP printers), Handheld (for syncing with WinCE devices), and NVIDIA video.
  • Services: if you expand the + you can select from the following: the MySQL and PostgreSQL database servers, the Samba file server, and the Apache and lighthttpd web servers with PHP.

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

If you check the box of a component that has a + next to it, it will automatically select all of its sub-components. You can click the + to expand and uncheck any sub-components that you do not wish to install.

Once you have made your selection, click the Next button to proceed to the next screen.
