> First Use

The live environment you get when booted from the ISO image is a little sparse, by design. You can check that Tribblix will boot on your system, and check that it can see the devices that you expect (run format to see what disks are detected, and /usr/sbin/dladm show-phys to list network interfaces). And then do an install, adding the overlays you find interesting. A reasonable starting point would be to add develop xfce and possibly xfce-extras, or just install the kitchen-sink. You can add additional software overlays later using zap.

Log in as jack, and you can get a very ancient desktop (twm) using startx.

To get Xfce, run startxfce4. (If you create a new account, you may find that you have trouble saving Xfce settings; if that's the case simply copy the .config directory from /jack and this should set everything up.)

For other desktops, there's a setxsession command that allows you to choose which desktop to run. Without arguments, it will just list which desktop environments/window managers it knows about, and whether they're installed. Just choose one, for example:

setxsession wmaker

and then run startx to get it running.
