Disabling bitmap fonts in X

To disable bitmap fonts in X create symbolic link to ../conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf in /usr/local/etc/fonts/conf.d
# cd /usr/local/etc/fonts/conf.d
# ln -s ../conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf

FreeBSD 11, X and UEFI

If X doesn't start with message similar to "Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs" and you are booting your system using UEFI you should install package drm-kmod, and make sure to load appropriate module before starting X (for example i915kms.ko), but beware that after installing package modules with same names will be present in both /boot/kernel and /boot/modules, so it is necessary to give full path to module to load (for example kldload /boot/modules/i915kms.ko).

When application is not listed in preferred applications in MATE

Reason for this is application .desktop file missing MimeType specification. For example for me mplayer and thunderbird are not listed as choices for video and mail respectively. To fix this edit application's .desktop file (in /usr/local/share/applications directory, or in ~/.local/share/applications) and run update-desktop-database afterwards (with -v to show its warnings).
