This is a quick guide to install GNOME in FreeBSD 8.0.

Create a minimal install of FreeBSD, see this post.

As of 5/21/2010, this will install GNOME 2.26.3

As a root user add the following packages.
pkg_add -r xorg pkg_add -r gnome2
Edit /etc/rc.conf and add the following if not there yet.
gdm_enable="YES" gnome_enable="YES" dbus_enable="YES"

That's it...reboot the machine and enjoy!!!
