Description

This issue is dedicated to validate the last changes made to support proxy connection during installation and use of TXM on Linux including: TXM installation, R installation, TXM RCP update system, R launching and R packages installation/update. It is also dedicated to validate that these changes don't broke direct connections support.
(You can see #1022 for more informations on what has been developed and researches made about this support.)

TXM on Linux can encounter network issues at various moments:

  • during installation when:
    => dependencies are installed
    => R packages are installed
  • during first launch of TXM when:
    => welcome page is shown in the TXM/SWT web browser
  • during next launches of TXM when:
    => updates are fetched at start-up
    => user calls the "Check R packages" command
    => user calls the "Check for updates" command
    => user calls the "Add an extension" command

Validation tests

  • use a computer on Linux
  • install the last TXM 0.7.7 beta 2 setup from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/txm/files/software/TXM/0.7.7beta2
  • start TXM
    => the application must not hang up on the splash screen
  • the browser must display the welcome page of TXM site
    => Starting with the title "TXM 0.7.7 beta" etc.
  • check the network connection provider from "Tools\Parameters\General\Network Connections"
    => if you use a proxy the "Active Provider" must be set as "Native"
    => if you do not use a proxy the "Active Provider" must be set as "Direct"
  • in "Tools\Parameters\TXM\Advanced" check or change the "Update Level" so it's set as "DEV" in the combo box
  • quit and restart TXM
    => when launched the application must say there is a new update to download
  • apply the update and restart TXM
    => check the TXM installation history in "Help\About TXM", button "Installation Details", the entry "Current Installation" must be:
    TXM 0.7.7.201506041701
  • call the "File\Check for updates" command
    => the application must not hang up and say there is no new updates
  • call the "File\Add an extension" command
    => the application must not hang up, open the extensions installation dialog window and show the list of available extensions
  • please provide the version of Linux used for the validation test
  • please precise if you are connected to the Internet through a proxy or not
  • if possible and if you use a proxy, please precise if you use a classic proxy configuration or an URL to a dynamic .pac file

What installer should be used ?
  • software center (logithèque)
  • GDebi
  • command line dpkg...

If TXM 0.7.7 beta1 is already installed, should it first be removed or one can use "reinstall" command?

#11 Updated by Alexey Lavrentev about 4 years ago

Tested with Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit
No proxy

All tests OK
