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:
#start up the panel (required for graphical logout options)
#start up the WM (does it have one?)
#Now start the main desktop session

deforaos.desktop XDG session registration
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?
Yes it stills relevant (shame on me).
