The advice has been to remove _one_ of the Linux installations
(the one that doesn't work).

The suggested approaches and the documentation hasn't been
followed; instead, strange assumptions and misdecisions have
been made. The presented outputs and system reactions do not
allow a proper recognition of what actually happened.

This hardly leads to a functional operating system installation.
And if it did, it's pure luck. :-)

For X to work, you need to install X first.

FreeBSD does not have "loadkeys" or "iwconfig". For setting up
your keyboard, run the command "bsdinstall" and select your
keyboard, which I already suggested. Networking can also be
configured with "bsdinstall", the command line tool for this
task is "ifconfig" (see "man ifconfig" for details).

The single user mode is only used for emergencies. FreeBSD
usually operates in multi-user mode (which is the default boot
mode, and this is fully correct).

The missing Umlauts are a problem I encountered as well.
Even though the Y and Z are in the correct place, and the
punctiation keys as well as the "shifted numbers" and even
the Alt Gr codes for brackets and braces work as intended,
Umlauts do not work. I think this is due to the new concole
subsystem (vt instead of sc) and the incorporation of UTF-8.

But don't bother with that stuff. Install X. Keyboard and
Umlauts and Eszett will work within X without a problem
once you've selected the correct keyboard layout for X.

So your next steps should involve installing and configuring
X (which it does automatically), install a window manager
to your personal preferences, and 

Here is the relevant documentation:








Also review my previous messages in which I explained how to
use ~/.xinitrc in order to configure your window manager.
There are also suggestions of window managers you could try.
I suggest you test KDE or Xfce first if you feel you need a
full-featured desktop environment.
