FreeBSD desktop installer
This script helps you set up a desktop system on top of FreeBSD 10/11. It will install PKG, X, a Desktop Environment of your choice, some optional Desktop software and set up a ‘wheel/video’ user.
$ mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt $ /mnt/installDesktop.sh
You can launch the script with additional parmeters:
-x skips the Xorg installation
-u skips freebsd-update
GNOME seems to work (and look) best - recommended desktop
KDE untested, because KDE4 is so old now
CINNAMON produces only a black screen… help?
Code::Blocks install is currently borked in 11.1 (startup crash), so you probably need to manually install it from ports
No graphics driver installation, this has to be done manually.
2018-01-11: added -x -u parameters, fixes for KDE/VLC, new network check, Xorg installed by default, echo -y removed, added freebsd-update
2018-01-02: Initial release
