Created attachment 159733 [details] Icon file for the desktop entry The DeforaOS ports/packages do not appear to have an XDG session entry or a single script/binary for starting up the desktop. This prevents it from being accessible from a graphical login manager for end-users. I am not sure if this should be added to the x11/deforaos-desktop (meta package), or the x11/deforaos-browser port (since that one actually installs the "desktop" binary). I am attaching a couple possible files to fix this issue: 1) A "startdeforaos" script for launching all the necessary pieces of the DE (to be placed in /usr/local/bin). Note: This script only starts the desktop/panel at the moment - it seem like DeforaOS still needs a window manager? 2) An icon for the DE: "deforaos.png" (to be placed in /usr/local/share/pixmaps) 3) An XDG session entry: deforaos.desktop (to be placed in /usr/local/share/xsessions) Just in case the text files do not get attached properly - here are the contents of the plain text files: [file /usr/local/bin/startdeforaos] #!/bin/sh #start up the panel (required for graphical logout options) panel & #start up the WM (does it have one?) #Now start the main desktop session desktop [/file] [file /usr/local/share/xsessions/deforaos.desktop] [Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 TryExec=startdeforaos Exec=startdeforaos Icon=/usr/local/share/pixmaps/deforaos.png Name=DeforaOS Comment=A lightweight desktop environment [/file]

I'm still working one (my laptop was not able to boot FreeBSD since 10.1, I had to found another one).

Is this still relevant?
Comment 6 Olivier Cochard 2018-01-13 15:00:08 UTC
Yes it stills relevant (shame on me).
