Can't make the date?
If you come to this page before or after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test, file any bugs you find at Bugzilla, and add your results to the results section. If this page is more than a month old when you arrive here, please check the current schedule and see if a similar but more recent Test Day is planned or has already happened.

[edit] What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on KDE Plasma Workspace 4.11 new features and general stability. Including Plasma Desktop, KDE Applications and KDE Platform.

[edit] Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

[edit] Prerequisite for Test Day

  • Use live image linked below to boot Fedora 20 + KDE 4.11 and if you want, install it on your computer.

Also helpful, if you have or can get them:

  • Additional displays (monitors, TVs...) for testing KScreen (multihead) setup
  • Wi-Fi/Bluetooth enabled networking devices
  • Printer
  • Graphics adapters, virtual machines, or driver configurations not capable of compositing

[edit] Live image

Verification
Please check the SHA256SUM is correct before booting!

You may download a non-destructive Fedora 20 + KDE 4.11.3 live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Using the live image is the easiest way to participate in testing for most people, but alternatively you can:

[edit] Upgrade your Fedora 19 to Fedora 20

You can install Fedora 19 on test partition or in virtual machine and upgrade it to Fedora 20.

setenforce 0
yum --releasever=20 distro-sync --nogpgcheck --disableplugin=presto
yum groupupdate @kde-desktop
reboot


[edit] Perform testing

Boot latest Fedora 20 into KDE 4.11 Plasma Workspaces.

Please perform as many of the test cases listed here as you have the time and the resources to complete, and fill out your results on the same page. The results will later be transferred back to this page for the record.

[edit] KDE Applications Extras

Note.png
This is a list of applications which doesn't have written test cases. Feel free to test them on your own and have some fun while exploring new features!
  • KDE Partition Manager
  • Kontact
  • KMail
  • Juk
  • Kstars
  • Marble
  • KDE Games

[edit] Unplanned testing

As well as running the formal test cases, you can help simply by running KDE 4 Plasma Workspaces and reporting any problems you come across in the course of your typical usage of desktop, even if this does not match up with any of the test cases. If you are unsure to what any discovered problem relates, please check in #fedora-test-day before you file a bug.

[edit] Test Results

If you have problems with any of the tests, try and report a bug. Bugs clearly related to KDE Plasma Workspaces and it's rendering should be reported to KDE Bugzilla. Bugs that are clearly issues in Fedora KDE integration should be reported to Fedora Bugzilla. If you are unsure, please report into Fedora Bugzilla or ask on #fedora-test-day or #fedora-qa. You will need an account to report bugs, but creating one is easy, and we will help you do this if you ask in IRC.

If you are not sure of the appropriate component), please check in IRC before filing, there are many possibilities. If you are unsure about exactly how to file the report or what other information to include, just ask on IRC and we will help you.

  1. Running from a Live image.

    Installed widgets don't show up in the menu - though I expect that has to do with the live image. This on a bare metal installation or VM would qualify this better.
