GCompris is a large software which has numerous dependencies. We ask packagers to be very careful and follow this minimal and manual test process.
- GCompris 8.3 is based on SDL_Mixer. TEST: run GCompris with sounds on, check it plays.
- GCompris 8.4 and after is based on gstreamer. There are a major bug in some version of gstreamer that prevent GCompris to play short ogg voices. TEST: Go in the voices directory and play short sounds with totem (or a gstreamer baser audio player).
e.g: in the gcompris source directory run: totem boards/voices/fr/misc/ok.ogg
It you see the following error in the console, then you need to fix your gstsreamer:
(totem:12015): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_event_new_new_segment_full: assertion `start <= stop' failed
The administration module rely on python and pysqlite.
- There is a menu entry to run the GCompris administration module.
- Run the administration module and check the activity menu displays the activities in the tree view.
TEST: Run GCompris in full screen and check the desktop bars are under our window.
