You can install GNOME by yourself. And try to use search button for next time.

Here you can read about installing GNOME on "clean" FreeBSD. Everything in PC-BSD will be the same.

beware that things such as pbi won't work with gnome since they rely on kde components

(not sure if it is still the case)

It's just a matter of weather or not they'd run while GNOME is in use. They don't for Blackbox (kdesu crashes).

If you plan on installing Gnome look at this page.

If you plan on installing Gnome over plain FreeBSD see this too.

If he installs Gnome over existing PC-BSD, KDE components will still be here. But I can't imagine a system that loads Qt, Gtk, and Gnome at the same time. This is insane... :x

Hey if a major software company can get away with including the MS-DOS edit program in a 32-Bit OS how crazy could that be :-)

I found that it is kinda hard to install gnome on PC-BSD, for some reason something always went wrong. For all those that wanna use Gnome it is actually 100% easier to use a fresh install of FreeBsd.

I got Gnome running in about 30 minutes or less on a fresh install... actually it.s extremely easy todo.
