If any of you wants a FULL functional FreeBSD desktop and server, You
can use My build.
it is a 1810 packages based on Mate http://mate-desktop.org
and is used for both server and desktop/notebooks... several companies
and people uses it

All you have to do is go or create a directory named /etc/pkg
inside, put only ONE ONE file named=matedesktop.conf
with the following information:
------------------------cut------------------------
DIST64: {
  url: http://dist64.k1.com.br/${ABI},
  enabled: yes
}
-----------------------cut-------------------------
this must be THE ONLY ONE FILE IN THE directory
than....  the command:   pkg install -y mate
installs about 1GB of the desktop fully usable....
if you do not have the "pkg" command, you can fetch on from => 
do not forget to create a NON ROOT ACCOUNT with known password and
directory
within the group wheel,  and webcamd with the command= pw useradd user
-m -g wheel -G webcamd  -h 0
Enable the desktop with the command:
sysrc gnome_enable=YES

edit the file: /usr/local/etc/gdm/custom.conf
change the line 88 to===>  #0=inactive


Test if your X is working....  using   xinit
than....

Reboot,  log into your new created user. customize the desktop...

If you have any needs, I can build anoter packages on demand...

remember:  ROOT USERS (uid=0) DO NOT LOG INTO the graphical interface..

You can choose the language to use in the login screen,
the keyboard and language is configure in the System -> preferences->
keyboard


Some screenshots... => http://www.k1.com.br/screenshots/index.html

After install, and working, you can always update it with the command:
pkg upgrade -y using the ROOT ACCOUNT

The repositories are binary updated every week.

Enjoy...
