This test case verifies that Package-x-generic-16.pngDolphin, KDE Plasma's file manager, functions correctly in Fedora. It includes testing basic file operations, navigation, and integration with other KDE components.


Install the latest pre-release version of Fedora on a bare metal system with KDE Plasma as the desktop environment. Ensure Dolphin is installed, which is typically the default file manager in KDE.

How to test

  1. Start the KDE Plasma desktop and log in.
  2. Launch Dolphin from the application menu or by clicking on a folder icon (if present) on the desktop.
  3. Navigate to various directories to check the response time and accuracy of the displayed contents.
  4. Create a new folder and a new text file within this folder.
  5. Copy and paste a file from one folder to another.
  6. Delete a file and then restore it from the trash.
  7. Use the split view feature to display two different directories side by side.
  8. Right-click on a file and use the 'Properties' option to view file details.
  9. Optionally, connect to a network location or external storage device to check Dolphin's handling of external resources.
  10. Close Dolphin using the window's close button or File -> Exit option.

Expected Results

The following must be true for this to be a successful test run:

  1. Dolphin launches without any errors.
  2. Directory navigation is smooth and correctly displays the contents of each directory.
  3. File operations like creating, copying, pasting, and deleting work without errors.
  4. The trash functionality restores files correctly.
  5. Split view works correctly, showing two directories simultaneously.
  6. File properties are displayed accurately when accessed.
  7. If tested, Dolphin handles external resources (network locations, external drives) without issues.
  8. Dolphin closes properly without system errors or crashes.


Optionally, explore additional features such as customizing view modes (icons, details, columns), tagging files, and using the integrated terminal to assess Dolphin's versatility and performance under various conditions.
