"Our official desktop is [[MATE]], which means that the leading developer of GhostBSD does not officially support XFCE. Community releases are maintained by the community and for the community. GhostBSD project will provide help to build and to host the community release. If anyone wants to have a particular desktop supported, it is up to the community. Sure I will help where I can, answer questions and guide new community members that contribute to community release."

==Fonts in QT5 applications under other desktop environments==
+
==Community Build==
If you should use QT5 applications you will discover that the fonts here look not the same as in the rest of the apps. There is a way out, just install qt5ct:
+
  
<code>pkg install qt5ct</code>
+
===[[File:KhostBSD.png|35px|link=]] KhostBSD===
  
or go to your [[Software Station]], set a hook and install the package.
+
For GhostBSD with KDE = KhostBSD you can find: [https://github.com/khostbsd/ KhostBSD]
  
After installing, you still cannot use the qt5 font settings, because you get an error message, that the environment variable of '''QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME''' is not set. You can do that in ''.xinitrc'' or ''.xprofile'' file in your users home directory by adding the line:
+
The KhostBSD.iso you can get: ftp://219.121.16.20/pub/KhostBSD/KhostBSD.20.01.iso
  
<code>export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct</code>
+
If you some issues ask Vic Thacker on Telegram.
  
After logging out and in again you are able to set the fonts in QT5 environment.
