Install Xorg

# pkg install xorg

I use nVidia video cards. This is the only way for painless FreeBSD desktop experience. If you use other video, install its driver now. Otherwise read on.

nVIDIA driver

# pkg install nvidia-driver nvidia-settings
# kldload linux
# kldload nvidia-modeset

Add to /boot/loader.conf:

linux_load="YES"
nvidia-modeset_load="YES"

Add to /etc/rc.conf:

dbus_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES"

Run it:

# service dbus start
# service hald start
