How to install GNOME in FreeBSD and start GNOME

To install the GNOME package from the network, simply type:

 # pkg_add -r gnome2

To build GNOME from source, use the ports tree:

 # cd /usr/ports/x11/gnome2
 # make install clean

Once GNOME is installed, the X server must be told to start GNOME instead of a default window manager.

Enabled by adding gdm_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf.

Once rebooted, GNOME will start automatically.

GNOME may also be started from the command-line by properly configuring a file named .xinitrc.

 #% echo "/usr/local/bin/gnome-session" > ~/.xinitrc

And then start GNOME using the command below.
