LDTP is the best cross platform GUI testing tool out there. Why? Because it works on Linux, Windows, OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Palm Source. Your feedback is much appreciated, please send an email to Nagappan.
LDTP runs on
- GNOME Version - min 2.24
- Accessibility enabled
- pyatspi (python-atspi)
Build LDTP on Linux
First checkout ldtp from github and cd into ldtp2.
$ git clone https://github.com/ldtp/ldtp2.git
$ cd ldtp2/
Then build and install.
$ python setup.py build
$ sudo python setup.py install
Note: If your GNOME version is less than or equal to 2.24, then use LDTPv1 (1.7.x)
It is best to read the documentation, so first cd into the doc directory.
$ cd ldtp2/doc/
Then you can either read ldtp-tutorial.rst in you favorite text editor or build
a pdf. First install
rst2pdf, then run:
$ rst2pdf ldtp-tutorial.rst
Then open the pdf in your favorite pdf viewer.
