freebsd xorg cinnamon

Hi,

I tried to install freebsd and I have two interrogations :

the first one, my installation is done, is how to get the cinnamon working well?
I followed several howto, xorg starts, but it crashes on Failed to execute login command
I dont know how to solve it...

thank you!

ps:: on the second one, is there an howto to install freebsd next to a windows/linux installation with just a 20gb extended partition?

Probably something that got lost in translation but I feel I might be waterboarded next. I assume you have two questions.

Only one you should follow: https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/handbook/x11/#x-install

Please enter cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | nc termbin.com 9999 and post the URL here. So we can have a look at your configuration logs.

Ok, your Xorg configuration looks correct. It appears to load the correct things. Where exactly are you getting the error?
 
If you just start the Xorg server via startx (as a user). Do you see your desktop?
if not, can you post your .xinitrc file?
