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.

What to test?

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on integration of Qt applications in Fedora Workstation (Gnome Shell).

Who's available

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

Prerequisite for Test Day

    • Any Fedora Workstation 24 image (nightly build / alpha / beta / rc / final) with "dnf -y update" run
    • Installed packages (in most recent F24 versions should be installed by default):
      • adwaita-qt4
      • adwaita-qt5
      • qgnomeplatform
    • Set QGnomePlatform to be used by setting QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME to 'qgnomeplatform' (e.g. export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME='qgnomeplatform')
      • Note, that exporting this property affects only current terminal session, but you can also put the command above to your .bashrc file to set it globally
      • In Gnome 3.20 this step shouldn't be required as this property should be already set by gnome-session

How to test?

  • Test of theme adoption:
    • Make sure you run Fedora Workstation (GNOME) and have all required packages installed
    • Install any Qt4 app (e.g. Kmail) and any Qt5 app (e.g. Kcalc)
    • Run the application and observe the look
    • The look and feel should be similar to GTK apps with Adwaita theme. The frameworks are different with different UI elements, so the look and feel will never be the same, but should be fairly similar
  • Test of font config:
    • Make sure you run Fedora Workstation (GNOME) and have all required packages installed
    • Install GNOME Tweak Tool 2. Install any Qt4 app (e.g. Kmail) and any Qt5 app (e.g. Kcalc)
    • Make changes in font settings (font family, size) and check if the font actually changes in Qt4 and Qt5 apps (you may need to restart the apps for the changes to take effect)
    • The expected result is that Qt4 and Qt5 apps reflect changes in GNOME font settings
  • Test of scaling:
    • Make sure you run Fedora Workstation (GNOME) and have all required packages installed
    • Install GNOME Tweak Tool
    • Install any Qt4 app (e.g. Kmail) and any Qt5 app (e.g. Kcalc)
    • Go to the Windows section in GNOME Tweak Tool and change window scaling to 2
    • Windows of Qt apps should also be scaled by 2

Update your machine

If you're running Fedora XX, make sure you have all the current updates for it installed, using the update manager. If you want to try Rawhide, see the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide. Or:

Live image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive Rawhide live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD. Live images can be found here.

Test Cases

Provide a list of test areas or test cases that you'd like contributors to execute. For other examples, see Category:Test_Cases.

Test Results

Construct a table or list to allow testers to post results. Each column should be a test case or configuration, and each row should consist of test results. Include some instructions on how to report bugs, and any special instructions. Here's an example, from a Palimpsest test day:

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla usually for the component udisks, or gnome-disk-utility for bugs in the Palimpsest graphical front end itself. 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. Once you have completed the tests, add your results to the Results table below, following the example results from the first line as a template. The first column should be your name with a link to your User page in the Wiki if you have one. For each test case, use the result template to enter your result, as shown in the example result line.
