Requested Setups

Anything

Specific tests

  • Smoketest (does the app launch?)
  • Does it work without snapd-xdg-open?
  • General testing - someone here familiar with this app?
  • The documentation site could be useful for those who have time and are happy to get more familiar with the software

#2

Ubuntu 17.10

Smoketest (does the app launch?)

yes

Does it work without snapd-xdg-open?

Opening an URL works. Opening a mailto: link doesn’t do anything.

General testing - someone here familiar with this app?

Yes, I’ll use it for the next few days and report back if I find more issues.

Further issues

  • No Launcher icon

  • app doesn’t close when you click the ‘x’ button (good) but it doesn’t close either when you right-click the desktop icon and choose “quit”. For some reason I expect that to actually stop the application. Choosing File>Quit in the menu does actually close the application. (good)

  • “Start app on login” setting doesn’t work.


#3

That sounds like a general snapd bug? Could you make a new thread under #snapd and ask? :slight_smile:

Thanks for the testing you’ve done and the testing you will do! Once you’ve run it for a while and picked up bugs could you try going back to the stable snap (sudo snap refresh mattermost-desktop --stable) and seeing if the bugs exist there or not so we can find out which bugs are regressions?


#4

All the bugs are still present in the previous version.

For me the most annoying bug is that there’s no desktop icon.

I must say, testing this stuff with snaps is incredibly easy! So handy that you can go back and forth between channels at will…
