Here’s our situation. We are testing on a SUT running SUSE Linux 9 and soon SUSE Linux 10, and of course we’ll upgarde to SUSE Linux 11, etc. as time goes on. There will be slight font changes as these upgrades occur which have the potential to require us to retake many images.
So the obvious solution is to use the text image capability. However, I can’t even get the pango solution to find a an image in Konsole in KDE. I see two things that sound promising but there is almost no documentation. One is to have a remote TIG. I’m concluding that this requires that you’re testing on Windows using the provided TIG server with the Eggplant dmg. The other solution is to run a script.
I have two questions/requests.
- Can you document the remote TIG protocol so that we can create our own TIG server that will run on both of our SUT platforms?
- Can you document the script command so that we know how to write a script that will retrieve the text images?
