Description

This test case tests whether the menu layout in a standard Fedora installation meets basic standards of navigability and polish.


How to test

  1. Perform a standard installation of the Fedora version (or pre-release) you wish to test, from the DVD image
  2. Examine each menu entry in each level of the default system menu layout, and ensure each application has an icon, at a resolution high enough not to appear pixelated, and consistent in appearance with other icons
  3. Check there is no Other menu at the top level of the system menu layout
  4. Check for cases where applications appear twice in the system menu layout
  5. Launch each application that appears in the system menu layout in turn, and try some very basic usage of it (such as opening a file appropriate to the application, or performing a basic operation). Also check for a Help menu with a working About entry

Expected Results

  1. Each entry on the default system menu layout should have an appropriate icon
  2. No Other menu should be present at the top level of the system menu layout
  3. Applications should not unintentionally appear in the system menu layout twice. Some appear twice intentionally, so check all cases with the desktop team before filing bugs
  4. Each application in the default system menu layout should launch without crashing and withstand basic usage. Bugs should be filed in any case where this does not happen
