-**Walkthrough of Xfce 4.6 Installation via Custom DVD/IMG Installer**
+### Short Walkthrough of Enlightenment Installation and Configuration
 
-There is a new [Xfce based DVD/IMG installer](http://island.quantumachine.net/~swildner/LiveDVD/x86_64/) which is built by [one of](http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2012-07/msg00123.html) the [DragonFly BSD team members](http://www.dragonflybsd.org/team/). As far as I can tell it is functionally identical to the official GUI installer except that it includes the Xfce 4.6 desktop environment rather than the FVWM window manager. Please help test it out so that we can hopefully get it included in the next stable release!
+This walkthrough describes how I install and configure the Enlightenment desktop environment on DragonFly BSD. You should customize your installation as you see fit. This walkthrough is being run on DragonFly BSD as installed and configured in "Long Walkthrough of DragonFly BSD Installation and Configuration" by Varialus.
 
-1. Download and extract the [Xfce installer](http://island.quantumachine.net/~swildner/LiveDVD/).
-2. If the version of the installer is less than or equal to 20120826-2055, then installing onto a uniprocessor computer may not work.
-3. If installng onto a VirtualBox virtual machine, the recommended operating system type is FreeBSD (64 bit).
-4. If installing onto a VirtualBox virtual machine, set the hardware clock to UTC time.
-5. After starting the computer but before it finishes booting, you will be greeted with the following boot menu.
+Enlightenment currently has a great balance of stability, features, and performance compared to other desktop environments on DragonFly BSD. I plan on using Enlightenment for personal use until MATE on DragonFly BSD has improved significantly. When currently installed and configured as described in this walkthrough, Enlightenment works but has the following issues.
+
+* DPorts has Enlightenment E17 0.17.5 but Enlightenment E18 0.18.8 is the current stable release. I prefer that the Enlightenment version not be updated until the current stable release works at least as well as the version currently in DPorts.
+* The splash screen significantly slows down the desktop from being displayed. This walkthrough disables the splash screen but the user has to wait for it during the first login.
+* The Enlightenment initial graphical configuration of keyboard layouts doesn't include the Dvorak keyboard layout.
+* The System > Restart and System > Power Off menu options don't work unless the Composite module is unloaded.
+
+I hope this walkthrough will make it easier for developers to properly fix these issues.
+
+1. From DPorts install the following packages and their dependencies.
+
+    * xorg
+    * xdm
+    * enlightenment
+    * e17-modules.
+
+2. Add the following line to /etc/rc.conf and save the change to disk.
+
+        dbus_enable="YES"
+
+3. Skim through /etc/ttys to find the following line.
+
+        ttyv8   "/usr/local/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   off secure
+
+    Then edit the previous line to match the following line and save the change to disk.
+
+        ttyv8   "/usr/local/bin/xdm -nodaemon"  xterm   on  secure
+
+4. Skim through /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0 to find the following line.
+
+        xconsole -geometry 480x130-0-0 -daemon -verbose -fn fixed -exitOnFail
+
+    Then edit the previous line to match the following line and save the change to disk.
+
+        #xconsole -geometry 480x130-0-0 -daemon -verbose -fn fixed -exitOnFail
+
+5. If you use the Dvorak keyboard layout instead of the QWERTY keyboard layout, add the following line to /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0 and save the change to disk.
+
+        setxkbmap dvorak
+
+6. Skim through /usr/local/lib/X11/xdm/xdm-config to find the following line.
+
+        DisplayManager*authorize:       true
+
+    Then edit the previous line to match the following line and save the change to disk.
+
+        DisplayManager*authorize:       false
+
+7. If it doesn't already exist, create the file /home/user/.xsession then add the following line to it and save the change to disk.
+
+        exec enlightenment_start
+
+8. Set the SUID bit with execute permission on /usr/local/lib/enlightenment/utils/enlightenment_sys by running the following command. "WARNING: this program might be vulnerable so do not set suid bit if do not trust all users of this machine."
+
+        sudo chmod u+s /usr/local/lib/enlightenment/utils/enlightenment_sys
+
+9. Restart DragonFly BSD and log in as user.
+
+10. The Enlightenment initial graphical configuration will be displayed. Select the following options.
+
+* Language: English
+* Keyboard: English (US)
+* Profile: Computer (Standard Enlightenment)
+* Sizing: 1.2 Title
+* Window Focus: Click
+* Updates: Enable update checking
+* Taskbar: Enable Taskbar
+
+11. The Enlightenment desktop will be displayed but only after a significant delay from the splash screen. This step disables the splash screen so you'll only have to wait for it this one time. After the desktop is finally displayed, click on the left side of the desktop and select Settings > All > Look > Startup, then disable the option "Show Splash Screen on Login" and click OK.
+
+12. If you use the Dvorak keyboard layout instead of the QWERTY keyboard layout, click on the left side of the desktop and select Settings > All > Input > Keyboard, then click Add > English (US) (us) > Variant > dvorak (English (Dvorak)) > OK > us (default, basic) > Remove > OK.
+
+13. Click on the left side of the screen and select either System > Reboot or System > Power Off. If DragonFly BSD does not reboot or power off, then click on the left side of the desktop and select Settings > Modules, click Look > Composite > Unload > Close.
+
+### Long Walkthrough of MATE Installation and Configuration
+
+This walkthrough describes how I install and configure the MATE desktop environment on DragonFly BSD. You should customize your installation as you see fit. This walkthrough is being run on DragonFly BSD as installed and configured in "Long Walkthrough of DragonFly BSD Installation and Configuration" by Varialus.
+
+MATE is my favorite desktop environment. When currently installed and configured as described in this walkthrough, MATE works but has the following issues.
+
+* DPorts has MATE 1.6.1 but MATE 1.8 is the current stable release. 
+* DPorts currently does not include the MATE meta package.
+* Enabling hald prevents applications from launching via the MATE menu.
+* Many non-fatal errors are logged in the /home/user and /var/log directories.
+* The console-kit-daem command in the CLI program top has high CPU utilization.
+* One of the post installation messages mentions devstat, but devstat is not in DPorts.
+
+I hope this walkthrough will make it easier for developers to properly fix these issues.

-## Tidbits
-* In the default shell, **tcsh**, ctrl-d is equivalent to tab-tab in **bash**, both of which display possible auto completions. If the list of possible auto completions has changed, running the command rehash will update it. Typing part of a previous command and then pressing the up key is equivalent to pressing ctrl-r and then typing part of a previous command, both of which search previously run commands.
-* **pkgin** is roughly equivalent to **apt-get**. They are both fairly straightforward command line package management utilities. Regular programs installed via pkgin are generally located in /usr/pkg/bin.
-* Like Debian, DragonFly BSD is configured by default to use su by default rather sudo, which is the default in Ubuntu. Running su changes the user you are logged in within a single shell instance whereas sudo lets you run a single command as another user. Both programs default to changing the user to root user. To enable your regular user to use su to become root, as root run nano /etc/groups and then change the line wheel:*:0:root to wheel:*:root,yourusername except of course replace rourusername with your user name. Running su - will change the shell environment variables to that of the user to which you're changing.
-* The console text editor vi is supposedly great, but if you're not familiar with it and some command you run opens some system file with it, it can be quite alarming. Don't panic! To exit without saving changes type :q! and then press enter.
-* The command line program man, short for manual, is very handy for finding out information about programs, system files and more. One way to navigate man pages is by using your arrow keys. You can exit out of a manual page by pressing the letter q on your keyboard. To learn more about the man command, run the command man man which will show you the manual page for the man command.
-* When your computer contacts another computer over the Internet, it converts server's name, such as example.com, to numbered address. The server's name is called a domain name and the numbered address is called an IP address, short for Internet protocol address. To find out which domain name goes with which IP address, you computer usually contacts a special server called a DNS server, DNS being an abbreviation of domain name system. DNS generally works pretty well automatically, but when it causes a problem, it can be very frustrating. As of DragonFly BSD 3.0.3, there's a non-critical DNS configuration setting that the DragonFly BSD installer doesn't set. The file /etc/hosts is a text file that can override DNS name-address bindings. The IP addresses 127.0.0.1 and ::1 always point to one's own computer, so your computer's domain name should always point to these two addresses. This is the setting that currently doesn't get set automatically. You can see or set your host name within the file /etc/rc.conf on a line by itself in the following format.

+31. The following menu will be displayed.
 
-* In DragonFly BSD the command *shutdown -p now* will shutdown and turn off your computer. Using the -h switch instead of -p will shutdown and halt the computer but not turn it off. In Debian and probably other Linux distributions, the command *shutdown -h now* will shutdown and turn off your computer. The -p switch isn't available, but there may be a way to shutdown and halt without turning off your computer.
-* **Hammer** is hands down the best file system currently in existence. It has block level deduplication, it is supported out of the box by operating system with great underpinnings, and it runs great on regular hardware.
-* **DragonFly BSD** is an awesome operating system for many reasons other than that it's the only OS with Hammer, but Hammer is why I'm making the switch. DragonFly's default GUI configuration is a bit rough around the edges for everyday use. But it's nothing that a little ironing can't fix.
-* **[Xfce](http://xfce.org/)** is a lightweight yet feature rich desktop environment. It has maintains an excellent balance between [innovation and compatibility](http://lwn.net/Articles/430598/).
-* **[Dissonance](https://bitbucket.org/varialus/dissonance)** is my fork of Apache Harmony, which is a clean room implementation of Java with a permissive license. Sun and now Oracle refuse to license the TCK, a tool used to validate Java compatibility, for use with Harmony. As a result of the dissonance caused by this refusal to cooperate with the community, Apache retired Harmony and resigned from the Java Community Process Executive Committee. I would have preferred for Apache and the community to have instead just written their own TCK, but I don't know what effects the dissonance had on their organization and it was their decision to make, so I can't blame them. It's unfortunate that such a great project has been effectively abandoned, and so it it is with that in mind that I call on the community to support Dissonance; make your own TCK and make it so much better so as to make passing Oracle's TCK effectively meaningless.
-* **[Jython](http://www.jython.org/)** is Python written in Java. It's not included in DragonFly BSD by default, but it's a great tool and I use it.
-* **ee** is roughly equivalent to **nano**. They are both easy to use command line text editors. The exit option will ask you whether you want to save. You can get to the exit confirmation by pressing Ctrl-[ and selecting 'a) leave editor'.
-* If NetworkManager Applet is installed, use it to override an unreliable DNS server rather than editing /etc/resolv.conf directly. Observed in NetworkManager 0.8.1 on Debian Squeeze. (This seems to not always work, particularly the first time you connect and perhaps after idling for a certain amount of time. I haven't narrowed down the exact cause.)

-## Issues
-* Varialus should ensure that these issues are properly logged. Yes, I know that they should be properly logged and I intend to eventually get them all logged. In the mean time hopefully my notes will help someone still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions.
-* The installer should offer the Xfce desktop environment as a supported option. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2. See workaround below.
-* The installer should set the keyboard layout before any typing is required. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
-* The installer should set the keyboard layout for the GUI. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2. See workaround below.
-* The installer should set the keyboard layout for the encryption password prompt. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
-* The installer should configure the keyboard within the GUI to be able to use the caps lock key. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2. See workaround below.
-* When encrypting the swap partition, the installer should configure the boot loader to generate a random key each time the system is booted so that the password doesn't have to be typed twice when the system is booted. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
-* When configuring the system from the installer, if the system just finished installing with encryption, the hard drive should stay unlocked so that the user doesn't have to type in his password again. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
-* When configuring the system from the installer, if the system is encrypted but was not just barely installed, the user should only have to type in his password once, not twice. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
-* When creating a user password in the installer, the password should not be written to a plain text installation log. Observed in DragonFly BSD 3.0.2.
-* When installing from a USB device onto a USB device, the installer should ensure that installed media is named such that when booted without the USB installer, the installed device name doesn't change. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
-* When installing onto a 3TB+ hard drive, the default partition table should be able to handle that size. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2. Fixed and tested in snapshot on 8/14/2012. See workaround below.
-* After selecting to install using all of a 3TB+ hard drive that already has an MS-DOS/MBR partition table on it, the installer should overwrite the partition table with an adequate partition table such as GPT. Observed in snapshot on 8/14/2012.
-* The default shell provided by the installer should list valid auto completion options after typing a partial command and then pressing tab two or more times. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
-* ->Excepting the bullet point, this syntax should center text in this wiki.<- Observed on 8/25/2012.
-* The following errors should not occur when quitting from the GUI.
+32. Highlight < Configure this System > and press enter.

+
+## Tidbits
+* Shell/Console/Command-Line-Prompt: In the default shell, **tcsh**, ctrl-d is equivalent to tab-tab in **bash**, both of which display possible auto completions. If the list of possible auto completions has changed, running the command rehash will update it. Typing part of a previous command and then pressing the up key is equivalent to pressing ctrl-r and then typing part of a previous command, both of which search previously run commands.
+* Package-Management: **pkg**, also known as pkgng, is roughly equivalent to **apt-get**. They are both fairly straightforward command line package management utilities.
+* Text-Editor: **ee** is roughly equivalent to **nano**. They are both easy to use command line text editors. The exit option will ask you whether you want to save. You can get to the exit confirmation by pressing Ctrl-[ or Esc and selecting 'a) leave editor'. The console text editor vi is supposedly great, but if you're not familiar with it and some command you run opens some system file with it, it can be quite alarming. Don't panic! To exit without saving changes type ':q!' without quotes and then press enter.
+* Manual: The command line program man, short for manual, is very handy for finding out information about programs, system files and more. One way to navigate man pages is by using your arrow keys. You can exit out of a manual page by pressing the letter q on your keyboard. To learn more about the man command, run the command man man which will show you the manual page for the man command.
+* Power-Down: sIn DragonFly BSD the command *shutdown -p now* will shutdown and turn off your computer. Using the -h switch instead of -p will shutdown and halt the computer but not turn it off. In Debian and probably other Linux distributions, the command *shutdown -h now* will shutdown and turn off your computer. The -p switch isn't available, but there may be a way to shutdown and halt without turning off your computer.
+* Find File: **grep** is great for finding text in a file and **find** is great for finding a file by name.
+* Process Management: Some good commands are top, ps, pkill and kill. There are no doubt others.
+* File-System: **Hammer** is hands down the best file system currently in existence. It has block level deduplication, it is supported out of the box by an operating system with great underpinnings, and it runs great on regular hardware.
+* Operating System: **DragonFly BSD** is an awesome operating system for many reasons other than that it's the only OS with Hammer, but Hammer is why I'm making the switch. DragonFly's default GUI configuration is a bit rough around the edges for everyday use. But it's nothing that a little ironing can't fix.
+
+## Issues
+* Disclaimer: I know that I should ensure that these issues are properly logged, but until that happens, hopefully these notes will be of some use to somebody.
+* Installer Supported Desktops: The installer should offer various desktop environment as supported options. Observed in DragonFly 3.8.1. I'm working on various walkthroughs as a workaround.
+* Early Keyboard Selection: The installer should set the keyboard layout before any typing is required. Observed in DragonFly 3.8.1.
+* Encryption Keyboard Selection: The installer should set the keyboard layout for the encryption password prompt. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
+* Random Key for Encrypted Swap: When encrypting the swap partition, the installer should configure the boot loader to generate a random key each time the system is booted so that the password doesn't have to be typed twice when the system is booted. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
+* Stay Decrypted for  Configuration: When configuring the system from the installer, if the system just finished installing with encryption, the hard drive should stay unlocked so that the user doesn't have to type in his password again. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
+* No Confirmation for Decryption: When configuring the system from the installer, if the system is encrypted but was not just barely installed, the user should only have to type in his password once, not twice. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
+* Plain Text Password in Install Log: When creating a user password in the installer, the password should not be written to a plain text installation log. Observed in DragonFly BSD 3.8.1. An adequate warning is given.
+* USB Installation Media Named Uniquely: When installing from a USB device onto a USB device, the installer should ensure that installed media is named such that when booted without the USB installer, the installed device name doesn't change. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2.
+* 3TB+ HD Install: When installing onto a 3TB+ hard drive, the default partition table should be able to handle that size. Observed in DragonFly 3.0.2. Fixed and tested in snapshot on 8/14/2012. See workaround below.
+* Overwrite 3TB+ Partition Table: After selecting to install using all of a 3TB+ hard drive that already has an MS-DOS/MBR partition table on it, the installer should overwrite the partition table with an adequate partition table such as GPT. Observed in snapshot on 8/14/2012.
+* Wiki Centered Text: ->Excepting the bullet point, this syntax should center text in this wiki.<- Observed on 8/25/2012.
+* XOrg Quit Errors: The following errors should not occur when quitting from the GUI.
+
+        waiting for X server to shut down xterm: fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) or KillClient on X server ":0.0"
+        xterm:  fatal IO error 35 (Resource temporarily unavailable) or KillClient on X server "0.0"
+        failed to unset mtrr: Device not configured
+        
+        
+        xauth: (argv):1:  bad display name "myhostname.mysubdomain.mytld:0" in "remove" command
+
+    Observed in DragonFly BSD 3.0.2 64-bit on VirtualBox 4.1.20 in Debian Squeeze.
+
+## Workarounds
+**Install Non-GUI on 3TB+ Hard Drive**
+
+*WARNING:* This workaround includes instructions which will delete all data from a hard drive.
+
+Delete the partition table from the hard drive. There are various tools with which to do this, one particularly easy to use tool is the [GParted Live CD/USB](http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php).
+
+Install from a [snapshot version of DragonFly](http://avalon.dragonflybsd.org/snapshots/). Be aware that snapshot versions are less thoroughly tested than stable releases.
+
+Tested in snapshot on 8/14/2012.

-            - ee /etc/rc.conf (as root)
-            - Add the following lines

-            - The notes at the URL above mention adding lines to xorg.conf for mouse integration, but I didn't see an xorg.conf in /etc/X11 or in /etc so I skipped this step for now.
-            - The notes also mentioned creating a file for HAL users or copying it, but I didn't see a file at /usr/local/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/90-vboxguest.fdi so I am skipping this step for the moment.
-            - Restart.
-            - I just noticed that the lines had already been added to /etc/rc.conf, so I removed the extra ones that I had added.
-            - Changed to terminal without X server. Host+F2 in VirtualBox, Ctrl-Alt-F2 on hardware.
