RE: Confused about setting up MATE desktop


Have fam and dbus installed for rc.conf :

echo dbus=YES >> /etc/rc.conf
echo famd=YES >> /etc/rc.conf
echo rpcbind=YES >> /etc/rc.conf
echo ipv6addrctl_policy=ipv4_prefer >> /etc/rc.conf
echo ipv6addrctl=YES >> /etc/rc.conf

Scripts to copy : 

cp /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/famd /etc/rc.d/
cp /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/dbus /etc/rc.d/

I'm building MATE from pkgsrc 2021Q2 in a VirtualBox machine (amd64) and so far so good. However, I realize that I'm probably missing a lot of steps and I'm not having great luck finding out what all I need to build, enable or add to rc.conf. Dbus is an obvious one, but after that I have no idea.

Can anyone fill me in on what configuration steps I need to take after building and installing meta-pkgs/mate?

Additionally, I'm not able to find a mixer app or applet to adjust the sound volume from the desktop (or even cli) -it looks like one's not included? What should I build and install ?
