Is the order of the desktop/window environments given as they are listed on the interface?  If XFCE is meant to be seperate from the 'unsupported/expert' section, perhaps it should be mentioned above that.

Since fluxbox is included (even with v8.2) I am curious where it is actually mentioned. If it is not indicated anywhere, someone might get the impression that it is not an option- even though it is already installed by default.

Post install changes

  • What would be the process of adding or changing window managers/environments?
  • Is there an automated or GUI method outside of the initial install?
  • Are other window managers/environments added via PBI or Ports or just the installer?

There should be a place in the wiki to address this situation. It is possible that someone with limited understanding could choose only one window manager and then decide later to add another or switch from one to another. In 8.2 it is an involved process and depending upon what is chosen, it can cause conflicts or instability. In 9.0 the installer offers further options during install and multiple selections can be made.

Listing of Desktop/window environments

Is the order of the desktop/window environments given as they are listed on the interface? If XFCE is meant to be seperate from the 'unsupported/expert' section, perhaps it should be mentioned above that.

Fluxbox

Since fluxbox is included (even with v8.2) I am curious where it is actually mentioned. If it is not indicated anywhere, someone might get the impression that it is not an option- even though it is already installed by default.
