Hi, I'm newbie in freeBSD.
I installed FreeBSD 11.2 and XFCE but I take some step missing.
When I logged in on xfce screen it show "Failed to execute login command." and reload xfce login screen again.
I try to used "pkg delete" in safe mode but not work. How can I do to remove it?

Thank you.

You need to be root. I've never used "safe mode" but if it works similar to single user mode you also need to double check if things might be set to read-only.

Or press control-alt-f1 to switch to the first console while leaving the GUI running in the background.

Though you may not want to do that when you're removing parts of said GUI of course ;)
