Moving to FreeBSD desktop

Again, my desktop somehow stop working, so I reinstall with FreeBSD and kde4.

This is what I have to do

Ports

x system

/usr/port/x11/xorg
/usr/port/x11/kde4

after that edit rc.conf and add

dbus_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES"
kdm4_enable="YES"
linux_enable="YES"

reboot to kde4 and install these ports

/usr/ports/sysutils/fusefs-ntfs
git
mercurial
smb4k

Fix Firefox

Firefox is ugly in the Default FreeBSD ports. This is what I have to do.

ports

gtk-qt4-engineqt
qtcurve-gtk2

after that, go to start menu –> system setting –> gtk style and fonts –> choose qtcurve as widget

I got these from http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?t=17786

Flash Plugins

Vim

Initially, I cannot get gvim to work. See these

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=ports/180417
http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=40610

It works when I compiled the port with “make -DWITH_OPTIONS install clean”

KeePass

Have to install mono and /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/libgdiplus
