I found the following after an Internet search:

https://blog.frederic2ec.tk/20180925/installer-une-freebsd-112-avec-mate

https://jacekkowalczyk.wordpress.com/2018/11/23/how-to-install-and-configure-freebsd-11-2/

I installed my system directly onto the hard drive, so I didn't use
VirtualBox.  In addition, it appears that bash was installed already.

Others than that, my installation was much the same as those two
examples.  I didn't add anything for things like a printer.

I still don't get the full default Mate desktop as there are no icons
for the computer, my home directory, or, for that matter, Trash.  i
remain baffled.
