Shutdown option missing after logging out and back in [SOLVED]

Not sure if this has anything to do with the machine being a laptop or not... I'll post it here, anyways: I'm using GhostBSD 10.3 MATE. If I log in the first time after a fresh boot using Slim, everything is fine. There's the option to power down the machine in the MATE menu. However if I log out an...

Installation report (X11/ZFS problems inside)

Hi again! I've finally found the time to convert my laptop to GhostBSD (leaving TrueOS due to various issues). Since I faced some problems with it as well, I've decided to write this installation report. I had played with the pre-alphas a bit in VMs but for my main box I opted for Enoch. 1st install...

Flash plugin

In section 4.3 (see http://wiki.ghostbsd.org/index.php?title=FAQ#Does_GhostBSD_Support_Adobe_Flash_plugin.3F ) the FAQs mention the flash plugin . I've done a quick search with OctoPkg but couldn't really find what this would refer to. I haven't really used Flash in quite some time (and probably nev...

Status of Compat Linux

The FAQs mention Linux Compatibility in section 4.2 (see http://wiki.ghostbsd.org/index.php?title=FAQ#Can_I_use_Linux_software_on_my_GhostBSD_system.3F ). As I'm updating the FAQs a bit, I wonder what the status of this currently is in GhostBSD 10.3. According to the FAQ, that it's enabled by defaul...

Re: (Manual?) installation with GELI

@ASX: Thanks for the welcome! @angelescuo: Of the supported DEs I prefer MATE. If you tell me how to import the right package list I'll give it a try (I've already set a spare machine aside for playing with GhostBSD). No packages? No problem. I like building ports for the control that this gives to ...

Taking care of the wiki

The wiki asks people to help expanding GhostBSD documentation and so I'm currently trying to clean things up, correct little grammar mistakes, add more links and a bit of material, etc. (the FAQ was still claiming that the current version of GhostBSD was 4.0!!). However I'm not (yet) very knowledgab...

(Manual?) installation with GELI

I would very much like to use GhostBSD on my workstation at work. I work for a company that allows free choice of the Linux distro to use; I asked about *BSD and since we have FreeBSD servers, too, I was told that *BSD would also be fine. There is just one requirement that GhostBSD does not seem to ...

Planning to switch to GhostBSD

Hi everybody! I'm new to GhostBSD. After about a decade of using Linux for the desktop I've switched most of my machines over to FreeBSD and OpenBSD. I custom built my systems and generally prefer either an extremely light-weight desktop (the FLTK based EDE) or MATE for a full-blown DE. I've tested ...
