Can you explain what steps you've tried and where things
started to break (commands + output)?

On the other hand, installing Gnome should be no problem
since v10 where a simple "pkg install" session should be
sufficient. The configuration instructions from the
Handbook should still apply.

To be honest, it's some time ago that I tried Gnome. My
current preference for the "almost full-blown desktop
experience" has been LXDE. It installs nicely via pkg,
and only few configuration settings have to be made,
mostly in relation to X (HAL, dbus etc.).
