• Unity8 is the top-most component.

Test Plan


  • Child surfaces.
    • Launch kate
    • Go to menu "File" then "Open". Select some source code file that would span several pages
    • There's a "mini-map" of the text file as the right scrollbar (as of kate 16.12.1 in zesty). Let the mouse stay over it and see that a popup with a snippet of the code shows up.
    • Now move the mouse along that minimap and see that the snippet popup follows the mouse and is updated/redrawn appropriately
    • Click and hold on the minimap-scroller and move the mouse up and down. See that the page number popup is updated appropriately and follows the mouse
    • There are 3 dropdown menu buttons on the bottom right. clicking on them opens menus. Navigate one of those menus and open a sub-menu.
    • Right-click anywhere on the text body of the opened file and see that a pop-up menu opens at the expected location.
  • When the mouse is hovering over an editable text, such as Kate's main window area, verify that the cursor shape is an "I" vertical bar (instead of an arrow).


  • In addition, install updated image on phone and tablet, load packages from PPA build silo per Release team's process
  • The following can be viewed as a 3 minute investigation test to ensure
    • on a locked phone, you can't unlock the phone during boot without entering the passcode (BUG #1395075)

    • greeter can dismiss
    • indicator panel drop, connect to backends. Try launching settings from indicators, make sure all the indicators display meaningful data.
    • navigating/scrolling the dash works as expected, note whether performance did not suffer
    • previews in dash can be accessed (note: if change related to music and video, test those)
    • OSK reveals, takes input and dismisses as expected (note: cross check known OSK bugs for any oddity)
    • time out and power button blanks screen, and power button unblanks screen
    • apps can be installed, note that the whole preview journey is consistent
    • launcher can be accessed and launch an app (note: test a preinstalled and a click app)
    • Launch a fullscreen application, such as Camera, and check that the indicators' bar is not present.
    • right edge navigation between apps & dash is as expected, all apps can be closed

    • find ~ -name trust.db -exec rm {} \; reboot and then test some trust prompts (location, camera picture & video recording)

    • behavior associated with MPs is as expected with the relevant component, e.g. any special activity dash, indicator or launcher
  • After connecting a mouse, or in a desktop session:
    • verify that window title changes in browser and/or settings app
    • note that mouse cursor changes around window borders
  • Connect an external screen (only Nexus 4 and 7):

    Note this feature not complete yet, might need to boot with external screen connected to get everything working properly

    • external screen should have the shell
    • internal should only show a static screen informing that external screen is in use

Unit tests

  • Please run the ui unit tests tests, unless you know for certain that jenkins has run the ui tests on a silo
    • use adt
      $ adt-run unity8 -o vivid --setup-commands "apt install --yes software-properties-common; \
          apt-add-repository --yes --enable-source ppa:ci-train-ppa-service/landing-022; \
          apt update" --- schroot vivid-overlay-amd64-shm
    • or run locally
      • grab source from the PPA
        $ ./build.sh
        $ cd builddir
        $ make test xvfbuitests
