Give the install guide at www.a1poweruser.com a try.
What you call add-ons is what FreeBSD calls the port/package
A very simple command of pkg_add -r flash will download and install
And just like the other operating systems, you are on your own to
and use the add-on software you just installed.

Subject: Is there a how-to super-page for FreeBSD?
There are several websites people have put together for Ubuntu that
every little step for configuring Ubuntu, is there such a page for
For example, tonight I installed Firefox, and wanted to install
Flash, Realplayer, and Java. I was able to find Acrobat and Flash
Google (the solution was at bsdforums.org). Realplayer and Java I
need to find.
Here is an example of a really useful Ubuntu page:
The "Add-On Applications" is especially useful for people who have
an install, and want their machine to be a "desktop" machine.
It just seems like the only way to find out things for FreeBSD is to
the lists, or Google a list archive. It would be really great if
a "super-page" that had all the common add-ons. I use Fluxbox
GNOME or KDE, so I prefer generic solutions.
I've been keeping notes as I play with FreeBSD, and will eventually
such a page if no one beats me to it. I'm still a FreeBSD nooby
it might take me a while. There are some people here that bascially
how to do everything with FreeBSD, I guess I'm hoping they will put
something together (or maybe help me).
