There is no TIG executable for Solaris. To generate Text Images for Solaris, you will need to create what we call a “scripted TIG.” There is a document at http://www.testplant.com/documentation/Writing%20a%20TIG.pdf that describes this process. Essentially you’re typing the text on a Solaris machine (either on the SUT itself or on a similarly configured Solaris box), then capturing an image of the typed text and trying to match it against the application. This can be a fairly simple thing to set up if you just need text in single font/size/decoration with consistent colors; it becomes more complex if you need to use several fonts, change the properties, or use different font colors and background colors. But once it’s written, its use is transparent; if you set it as the text platform, your text image calls will use it to generate text images with no other changes.
It’s very difficult to create a standalone TIG application for any *nix implementation. The UNIX Font Rendering FAQ, “? knowing which font formats are supported, or where font files are installed/located depends on the implementation of your X11 Server, or of the X11 Font Server, which itself depends on your system’s setup.” That makes building a TIG server for UNIX platforms challenging. That said, we do hope to provide improved TIG functionality for other platforms in the future.
