Mir test scripts and applications

Once installed the tests can be run in two modes:

  1. As an application on an X11 supporting desktop:

    $ mir-test-tools.<test>

  2. As "owner" of a virtual terminal:

    $ sudo mir-test-tools.<test>

mir-test-tools.qt-test runs a simple Qt client and reports if it fail

mir-test-tools.sdl2-test runs an SDL2 client and reports if it fail

mir-test-tools.gtk3-test runs a gtk3+ client and reports if it fail

mir-test-tools.performance-test runs the Mir performance tests and reports if any fail

mir-test-tools.basic-test a very simple test to prove that a Mir server and client can be started and connect to each other. (This is mostly legacy as it tests mirclient support, not Wayland.)

mir-test-tools.smoke-test runs each of the example Mir clients and reports any that fail. (This is mostly legacy as it tests mirclient support, not Wayland.)

mir-test-tools.stress-test runs the mir_stress client - adjust the length of the test with --test-timeout &lt;seconds&gt;. (This is mostly legacy as it tests mirclient support, not Wayland.)

mir-test-tools.bash is a debugging aid: it starts a bash session with the environment set up for the tests.
