Once installed the tests can be run in two modes:
As an application on an X11 supporting desktop:
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 <seconds>. (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.
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
On Arch Linux, snap can be installed from the Arch User Repository (AUR).
The manual build process is the Arch-supported
install method for AUR packages, and you’ll need the prerequisites
installed before you can install any AUR package. You can then install snap with the following:
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/snapd.git
Once installed, the systemd unit that manages the main snap communication socket needs to be enabled:
To enable classic snap support, enter the following to create a symbolic link between /var/lib/snapd/snap and /snap:
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
