QA:Testcase gnome-shell extensions gnome org
This test case aims at extensions.gnome.org extension management made available in your favourite browser by Gnome Shell Integration plugin.
- Boot into a GNOME 3 session with GNOME Shell
- Have several extensions installed as in previous case.
How to test
- Check that the Gnome Shell Integration plugin is loaded in the browser of your choice. This can be done by typing about:plugins in most browsers - Firefox as well as web-kit based ones.
- Using this browser go to https://extensions.gnome.org/
- Follow the Installed extensions menu link to see the list of extensions you currently have installed on your system.
- Try enabling/disabling various extensions for some time.
- Go back to the main page and browse through available extensions
- View several detail pages of extensions that had installed before as well as the others.
- Try to disable previously installed (not using web interface) extension.
- Choose a number of new extensions and install/enable them using the switch button and by accepting in the pop-up dialog.
- Disable some out of these newly installed extensions.
- Coming to the extensions.gnome.org website, it should load and no red warning box should appear.
- With step three, you should see all your currently installed extensions and whether they are loaded. This list should be coherent with the content of gnome-tweak-tool Extensions tab.
- Just as when doing so with gnome-tweak-tool, as you keep enabling and disabling extensions they should load / unload accordingly. If the extension switch doesn't come to on when you try, this may be because of incompatible/faulty extension as well as the management system. If you are unsure of what is the case, please, check up with us on IRC before filling a bug. However even if particular extension is faulty, gnome-shell should in no case crash. Please note that some extensions won't visibly alter gnome-shell when you enable them unless some conditions have been met (Media player indicator needs some media playing etc.).
- With step five, verify that button (on/off) on individual extension's pages represents their current state, both for extensions you've installed/enabled online and those you've installed and enabled before.
- All newly installed extensions should install and get enabled properly. Please keep the limitations of results point two here as well.
- All extensions disabled on their individual pages should unload, yet not uninstall.
