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?[edit]

Today's instalment of Fedora Test Day will focus on Internationalization a.k.a. i18n around Desktops including their applications. this aims to ensure if i18n support works enough on them.

Who's available[edit]

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

Prerequisite for Test Day[edit]

OR

How to test?[edit]

Update your machine[edit]

If you test with an installed system, make sure you have all the current updates installed, using the update manager.

Live image[edit]

Instead of testing on an installed system, you may download a Fedora 32 nightly Workstation live image or Fedora 32 Silverblue image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD. The latest live image links can be found here: please make sure to get a Fedora 32 nightly, not Rawhide.

Run the tests[edit]

Visit the result page and click on the column title links to see the tests that need to be run: most column titles are links to a specific test case. Follow the instructions there, then enter your results by clicking the Enter result button for the test.

Reporting bugs[edit]

Include some instructions on how to report bugs, and any special instructions.

If you have problems with any of the tests, report a bug to Bugzilla for the appropriate component. 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.

Test Results[edit]

Please follow the nomenclature of adding profile information for your testing while submitting test result

1) which variant? WS or SB?

2) bare metal or VM?

3) which language used?

4) which arch used?

e.g. a complete user profile should be "SB, KVM, ja_JP, x86_64"

  1. In GNOME there is possible bug for Typing booster - in Overview the "Type to search" is not erased on typing and I cannot really see what is in the search bar as there are letters over each other. Or perhaps its simply not cooperating with gnome as it should, I expect the "typing" to overview search is stolen by the booster and is really not typing to until you press Enter.
  2. Unable to type at all under Vietnamese BoGo. Also when going over the steps over and over again, sometimes upon $ibus restart I got infinite Enter key entries, the terminal just keeps scrolling.
  3. When trying to look at keyboard it crashedi - bus-libpinyin quit unexpectedly
  4. Played around multiple times with its settings and did not get any Chinese characters.
  5. ibus installed but I am unable find required input source
  6. 'Eye' button does not open keyboard map
  7. I was not able to complete steps with '1' '.' '<space>' as it did nothing but typed those characters.
  8. In this part the '1.space/' works.
