Transitioning From Oracle® Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.3

Exit Print View

Updated: December 2018

Desktop Features

The default desktop is the Oracle Solaris Desktop, which includes GNOME 2.30 from the GNOME Foundation, the Firefox Web browser, Thunderbird email client, and the Lightning calendar manager from the Mozilla Foundation.

Note -  The login manager has changed from CDE to the GNOME Desktop Manager (GDM). If you are transitioning from Oracle Solaris 10 to an Oracle Solaris 11 release, and you previously customized your CDE login, review your display management configuration. You might need to make some changes to the GDM configuration to ensure it works as expected. See Troubleshooting Desktop Transition Issues.
