    Other Trinity Desktop Environment on FreeBSD

    Trinity, also known as TDE, is a desktop environment for Unix-derived and Unix-like operating systems. It is a continuation of KDE 3.5 much like MATE is to GNOME 2. TDE contains a substantial amount of KDE applications that lost features or were cut entirely in the Plasma era, such as aRts...

    How to change mouse scrolling acceleration parameters?

    I can not change the mouse scrolling parameters. I have a Logitech G502 mouse and when I scroll through long websites or PDFs, the scroll delays like 3-5 secs to actually start moving up/down. I would like the scrolling to take place instantly like how it should. The Logitech G502 mouse has a...

    Miscellaneous issues with KDE Plasma

    I have been running KDE Plasma for my main workstation PC for a few months now and I have to say I am quite happy with how things are working. I am even slowly beginning to become independent from using my MacBook and Windows installation on another drive of my workstation and feeling great...

    Installing KDE apps without KDE-specific services

    Its from my understanding that KDE applications can, at the source, be installed much like xfce applications where they dont have a hard dependence on the desktop environment they're from. Installing something like x11-fm/krusader2 however pulls in quite a lot of kde frameworks specific things...

    After refactored drm-kmod + gpu-firmware-kmod, cursor is now invisible!

    Hello, I've already posted here about this problem, but I thought I'd make another post in a different category since I don't think it's a problem with peripherals; rather, it is a problem with the refactored drm-kmod-and-friends ports. I hope that's allright! ☺️ I am on a laptop, specifically...

    Solved Xorg/KDE Doesn't Load After Clean Install

    I reinstalled FreeBSD and KDE today because of an issue I was having with my clock. Everything seemed to work after installing FreeBSD and Xorg.

    KDE and dbus_enable

    I had just did a fresh installation of FreeBSD 13 and xorg+KDE. I deliberately left out "dbus_enable="YES" in the /etc/rc.conf (after finding out that it isn't really necessary as some users don't have it enabled). After rebooting the machine, I got a blank (black) screen with only a moving...

    Xfce Does Xfce requires less or simpler hardware drivers (compared to KDE)?

    I'm using KDE with the drm-kmod graphics driver and just experienced a hang issue. I'm just wondering if I switch over to Xfce, would it work without this drm-kmod driver? My gut feeling is it would require the same hardware drivers. But however, I remember that many years ago things were much...

    Xorg and KDE does not work on FreeBSD 13, but GhostBSD works. So, what are the relevant config files?

    I'm trying to get KDE up and running on FreeBSD 13 on a laptop PC. I could not even configure Xorg to run and it seems like the hardware cannot be recognized. So, I downloaded GhostBSD (both the default MATE and Xfce versions) and it works out of the box. I am now trying to figure out what...
