Today I downloaded from pkg MATE ; is a desktop environment composed of free and open-source software that runs on Linux and BSD operating systems. I followed the chapter 5.7.2. as it described for Kde:

MATE requires /proc to be mounted. Add this line to /etc/fstab to mount this file system automatically during system startup:
proc /proc procfs rw 0 0

MATE uses D-Bus for a message bus and hardware abstraction. These applications are automatically installed as dependencies of MATE. Enable them in /etc/rc.conf so they will be started when the system boots:

A possible replacement is SDDM. To install it, type:
# pkg install x11/sddm

Add this line to /etc/rc.conf:


and everything went well !
