echo 'exec $1' > ~/.xinitrc does not apply to the live system only wjen it is installed. There is gtk engine missing for the current theme and the wallpaper are not setup.

I did forgot that there is no one maintaining xfce.

For ZFS I'll have to investigate might be problem to build the cfg file. If you run gbi in the installer you might get a pyton code error.

I successfully installed GhostBSD 11 alpha . Slim was the default theme, not the GhostBSD theme. I tried to install with the default UFS and grub but I got an error when booting about "grub rescue". I tried to fix it using info from an ubuntu forum but it didn't work. I installed using UFS and the BSD boot loader. Also the reboot window didn't come up after install, I had to reboot the normal way.

If I can help with xfce4 or anything else let me know.

If you are interested to contribute on the development side of the project I will help you get up to it, for some port of it you do not need to code only how to configure files and create or update ports. Will you be interested?

Yes, I would be interested. I like GhostBSD and I want to help. It's my favourite OS. Could you help me out with some online documentation that I could study so I can help you better?

The install I did seems to be running fine. However:
There is no wi-fi the networkmgr is not running and there is no icon on the task bar
/etc/rc.conf shows nothing about the network, also cupsd_enable="YES" was in the wrong place, placed right next to webcamd_enable="YES"
Other than that everything seems OK.

On the plus side the i915kms module is being loaded automatically

Thanks for your work, ericbsd.

I did fix the ZFS problem the issue was an if instead of an elif.

I don't think there is updated documentation but if you have GitHub account you could start to clone ghostbsd-build and star building XFCE your self and catch more problem before the next release.

I am at work right now also and I have headache since yesterday. I will try to help as I can.

Also I forgot to commit one of the most important fix the one that create .xinitrc.
