Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Fedora_32_Final_Release_Criteria#default-application-functionality release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion. If so, please file a bug and nominate it as blocking the appropriate milestone, using the blocker bug nomination page.


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 for cases where applications appear twice in the system menu layout
  4. 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. 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
  3. 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
