    How do I set the GNOME 3 login screen (aka GDM greeter) keyboard language to German?

    Hello! I consider myself an absolute beginner as far as FreeBSD and GNOME 3 is concerned; still - during the last few days - I managed to get FreeBSD 12.1 (amd64) up and running in a 32-bit VirtualBox on Windows 10 32-bit. I even managed to install GNOME 3 (3.28.4) on top of the basic FreeBSD...

    GDM login theme

    Hi. I'm trying to change the gdm theme so it can look a bit more decent. Found this theme at gnome-look.org but I can't seem to figure out what to do next. There's an old post in these forums showing how to change it, but it's nine years old already and none of the suggested methods work. I...

    Oh no! Something has gone wrong (GNOME3)

    I installed GNOME3 last week (from ports) and used it successfully all week. Worked great. Unfortunately, I went away for the weekend and turned off my desktop. I must have changed something the last time I used my machine because now, after I enter my login in GDM, I get a white screen that...
