Gnome is my default desktop enviroment, i.e. when i login and type 'startx' gnome starts. I am using Gnome2 on a FreeBSD 4.9 p.s. or would you suggest that i convert to KDE?
  5. Hi, I have recently installed FreeBSD (i know it's unix but....) version 4.9 i386. Considering that this is the first time i have ever used Linux/Unix Based OS i am doing quite well with setting up the XServer and the Gnome Desktop. My question is this...
