Gnome and PBI

I am a Gnome user. I have had issues with the following but others may not have.

I installed PC-BSD to check it out and then installed gnome through the ports system. But I cannot install any PBIs from within Gnome nor can I create any PBIs from Gnome. Are are any plans/work going on to create a GTK front-end to the PBI creation utility and also facilitate the PBI installation from within Gnome?

Thanks.

PC-BSD tools are QT not KDE, so are accessible via GNOME, atm PC-BSD tools do not support commandline flagging, so atm it would require re-writing the QT apps to work with GTK+, there are plans for flag support in commandline use so writing a frontend utilising those flags should be pretty rudimentary once they are implemented.

As for GNOME, I am working on a GNOME version of PC-BSD, which will address menu issues and such.
