This tests Settings in GNOME, which allows you to configure your GNOME preferences and behavior.

How to test

  1. In GNOME, start Settings from the top right system menu or by searching for it in the Overview.
  2. If you have a wifi, go to Wi-Fi and connect to a wifi network. Then make it forget the connection and connect again (it should ask for the password again). Test whether toggling wifi on and off and Airplane mode on and off works as expected.
  3. If you have a cable network connection, go to Network and test whether toggling cable network on and off works as expected.
  4. If you have a Bluetooth device, like a mouse or headphones, go to Bluetooth and try to connect it. Test whether it works as expected.
  5. Go to Appearance and change the desktop wallpaper. Pick some provided one. Then click "Add Picture" and select your own picture. Also test that switching between Light and Dark theme has the expected effect.
  6. Go to Privacy -> Screen and configure Blank Screen Delay. Test whether your system is blanked and locked after the specified delay.
  7. Go to Sound and test whether you can control sound volume, output device, and microphone as well, if you have one.
    • There's a nice Sound Recorder application (gnome-sound-recorder package) - which you can install and use to test your microphone.
  8. If you have multiple displays, go to Displays and try to enable and disable individual displays, and configure their layout.
  9. Go to Mouse & Touchpad and adjust mouse sensitivity. If you have a touchpad, adjust its own sensitivity, and test whether adjusting Natural Scrolling and Tap to Click has the expected effect.
  10. Go to Keyboard and add several keyboard layouts. Open a Text Editor and try switching different layouts (Super+Space or use the menu in the top panel), whether they produce expected characters when typing.
  11. If you have a printer, go to Printers and add your printer, then print a test page.
  12. Go to Region & Language and change the language of your user session. Log out and back in to see the changes.
  13. Go to Users and create a second user. Log out and verify that the secondary user is shown in the user list at the login screen. Log in with the second user, verify that its desktop shows up correctly. Then log out and log in with the primary user again. Delete the secondary user account. Log out and verify that the secondary user is no longer displayed in the user list.
  14. Go to About and see whether the displayed system information match expectations.
  15. Perform some additional Exploratory testing.

Expected Results

  1. Every option should behave as expected.
  2. Please report all failures to the GNOME tracker.
