Default App Cafe
Hi,

When i go to App Cafe, and click the Installed tab, i don't see any software installed. Under Ubuntu/Mint i was using Synaptic to add/remove software. Is there anything under PC-BSD which looks the same as Synaptic? IF not, how can i remove software i don't like/use and install software?

MAny thanks!

AppCafé will show you software it has installed, so you need to install software from appcafe in order to see it listed in the installed software. That is one way of installing software in PCBSD, the other ways are the FreeBSD ones: packages (commands pkg_add, pkd_delete, pkd_info and ports.

It doesn't. For instance, i want to remove LXterminal since i prefer the gnome terminal. Nowhere to be found in Appcafe.

Isn't there anything similar to synaptic available for PC-BSD?

Oh, you want to remove system packages then, such as LXDE since
lxterminal is apart of it. You can do so via Control Panel -> System
Manager -> System Packages

No. I want to remove indivudual programs/applications such as LXterminal or applications i don't wanna use.

LXterminal sounds like an application of Lxde, but i see it under XFCE and Gnome too.

If you want to do it on an individual pkg-by-pkg basis, then you need to
use pkg_info & pkg_delete from the command-line. From there you can
remove lxterminal and others. But be warned, if you remove the wrong
thing it is possible to break your desktop

I installed PC-BSD again in VirtualBox and checked the Appcafe again under the section Installed Applications.
And again, all the installed applications aren't visible, see screenshot.

I'm running PC-BSD with KDE. Let's say i want to remove Dragon videoplayer. It is not visible in Appcafe. How do i remove it then??? By means of using that pkd-delete command??

Yes, if you want to remove specific parts of the desktops, you will need to use "pkg_delete". You can find the pkg name with "pkg_info | grep lxterminal", or use "pkg_delete lxterminal-\*"

Ok, i'll try that! Why is it that Linux has synaptic which shows every installed and available package and an operating system like PC-BSD doesn't have such tool?? To me as Linux user, this looks very weird and strange.

Synaptic and Appcafe are really different. The fact is AppCafe exploits PBI, that is the new PCBSD package format, while base stuff is installed using FreeBSD package format (pkg_* commands). There are some packge GUI frontends, like this based on GTK+, that could allow you to see all FreeBSD-style packages.
