Of course it helps to read the relevant documentation :o)
I just indicated this method which I've been using for all the years on
Linux. I began on Slackware, where there is (almost) no configuration
helper, so you have to read the docs. There's no way around it. And when
I switched to other distros (like CentOS), I simply kept the habit of
configuring things by hand.
IIRC, I spent much time with the FreeBSD documentation about the
graphical server. It's really well done, explaining everything step by
step. But then, it's not something you can learn quickly in a matter of
minutes. It takes some time, but it's worth it.
