i tried startx, it was the first thing i thought of, didnt think of initx though..

#gnome-session
#startxfce4
openbox
Now just execute 'startx'.
im not new to linux, but im not overly experienced either, i still require some sort of DE to navigate and create files n such; though i can do some through console - granted im used to the OS enough to know what folders and subfolders are called.

By default FreeBSD has ee editor. To create and edit ~/.xinitrc:
Code:
touch ~/.xinitrc
ee ~/.xinitrc
To save the changes, just press Esc and select 'save'. You will have a DE/WM only if you installed one. For example, to isntall xfce execute:
Code:
cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4
make install clean
Inside ~./xinitrc insert the line 'startxfce4'
